Its been a while! I haven't had any specific recipe that i've wanted to post, but today I came up with a new one so I wanted to share it with you :) I've experimented a lot with different snack ball recipes but almost all of them have some weird or expensive ingredient in them, so I wanted to make one that was simple. It's both sugar free and gluten free actually! although it contains nuts so if you're allergic to that then this recipe isn't for you sadly.
Also try not to be intimidated by the beans! They actually make them taste really fudgey and creamy so at least give it a try! also this recipe is written in grams so if you don't have a food scale then you can use the measurements i wrote, but they are just an estimate so you might have to add more or less of something. Therefore, i highly suggest using a food scale for best results.
Makes 12 - 20 depending on size
230g kidney beans (drained and rinsed weight)
40g crunchy or smooth peanut butter (2 tbsp)
15g (1 tbsp) honey/agave/syrup OR 0,5 - 1 tbsp stevia
10g cornflour (not starch! and not polenta) (2 - 3 tsp)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp vanilla sugar (optional)
In a food processor mix the beans, syrup and peanut butter into a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until fully combined. Roll into balls (I make them 15g each). Store in fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for a month.
