Sunballs

I was inspired by a quick recipe I saw on Keeley McQuire’s blog and made an adapted batch for Alistaire to nibble on. Turned out everyone else liked them just as much…..even the Teen. But first I had to lure the littlest back inside to enjoy a snack made just for him!

Being that they didn’t need a food processor, I had them ready in under 10 minutes (most of which was Walker trying to help me….)

One thing I changed was using 1-minute quick oats instead of rolled oats. The texture is finer and easier for Alistaire to chew.

Sunballs

Ingredients:

Sunballs3

Directions:

Mix the oats through honey together in a medium mixing bowl. Make balls with a 1 Tablespoon Disher, packing tightly with hands and rolling into balls.

Add powdered sugar to a shallow bowl, roll balls in sugar. Store balls in an airtight container, in the refrigerator.

Makes about 14 balls.

Notes:

You can make your own oat flour easy enough. Grind oats in a mini food chopper or blender.

Read powdered sugar labels. Some contain tapioca starch, others cornstarch. I have good luck with Wholesome Sweeteners organic.

I tried out a new-to-me honey in this recipe, Golden Blossom Honey:

I had received samples of it recently, the Sunballs were its first use. Taste wise?  Clear, mellow, fruity. It wasn’t what I was expecting from commercial honey (I am not a fan of most honey-bear honey found in stores. It is often so intensely sweet it isn’t palatable) I would put Golden Blossom Honey in the “I’d have it in tea” category, meaning I liked it quite a bit. And to my Mother In-Law (who I know will read this!), it is sold in Florida. You need to pick me up some ;-)

  1. MMMMM! These balls look so appetizing! Yum!

  2. Oh yum! These are just like the cinnamon sunflower oat balls I made that was inspired by your original sunflower ball recipe. Seriously, those cinnamon balls are one of the yummiest things I’ve ever made :)
