Halloween treats aren't known for being low in sugar, but there's no reason they can't be. This recipe has been made from simple and healthy ingredients to build upon the great taste of just nuts and a pinch of salt.
Using peanut butter as the main ingredient also means you'll receive a slower release of energy from the treats, instead of an impending sugar high.
Batty Bliss Balls
Time: 45 minutes | Serves: 4-6
Dairy Free / Vegetarian
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup LSA
¼ cup mixed nuts (e.g almonds, walnuts, cashews)
3 medjool dates, pitted
½ cup Mayver's Dark Roasted Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup water
¼ cup desiccated coconut
½ tbsp cacao powder
Small handful sunflower seeds
6 squares dark chocolate (needs to be thin shards of chocolate e.g. 85% dark Lindt)
1. Combine all ingredients, except water, in a food processor and process until smooth.
2. Slowly add small amounts of water to the mixture, processing after each addition, until the mixture holds together when shaped into a ball (you may not need to use all the water).
3. Roll teaspoon amounts of mixture into balls. Combine desiccated coconut and extra cacao on small plate and roll half of the balls in this.
4. Use a sharp knife to cut chocolate into wing-like shards and insert into balls to create bat wings.
5. Decorate with candy eyes and sunflower seeds as fangs. Store in container in fridge.
