Oaty Snack Balls
A healthy snack that the kids actually like? One did, one didn’t. I ate 5.
Equipment: baking sheet, baking parchment, food processor, large mixing bowl, oven 190 degrees
1 cup oat flour (see step 1)
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon or orange zest (younger child didn’t like the bits so will try without next time and add a little orange juice instead and less syrup)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup apple sauce (or ripe pureed banana, see notes)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Measure 1 cup of rolled oats straight into the food processor and whizz to a flour. Add this to the mixing bowl.
Add all the ingredients into the mixing bowl. Give it a good mix.
Roughly a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Pop on the baking sheet.
Oven 14-15 minutes.
If you use banana instead of apple puree then you might not need as much maple syrup.
Make even sweeter by adding more raisins or 1-2 tbsps of sugar (such as coconut sugar).
