Nutty Chocolate Balls

PBBs

These are the most delicious healthy treat I have ever tasted!  They are insanely healthy and will impress any “I am not eating any of that health crap”  person you care for ;)

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups of ground raw nuts & seeds (the best are organic: walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, & cashews)
  • 2 cups of organic brown rice crisp cereal (Nature’s Path makes a great brand, which can be found in the health food section)
  • 500g organic nut spread (ie. almond butter, peanut butter, etc.)
  • 1 bag bitter sweet organic chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Start melting chocolate in a double boiler.
  2. Grind the nuts and seeds (I use a hand chopper, like the cheesy “Slap Chop”) until you have 1.5 c of ground texture.
  3. Combine the nut & seed mixture & rice crisp cereal.
  4. Add the nut spread and mix it all until the texture of playdough (go play with playdough, for reference).
  5. Using your hands, roll into balls about 1-2 inches in diameter and place on a cookie sheet.   If you find it difficult to roll the balls because they fall apart, you need more nut better & ground nuts.  If you find it difficult to roll balls due to stickiness, you may need a bit more rice cereal, or to butter your hands frequently.
  6. Place balls into freezer for 5+ min (to ensure they will hold shape during step 7).
  7. Roll nut balls in melted chocolate, coating as much as you would like.
  8. Enjoy… I dare you not to :)
  9. Freeze whatever is not devoured

PS – I invented this rocking, tasty recipe, so contact me  with any questions :)
