Feeling sad that you didn’t win the $600 million in the lottery? No worries! I have a delicious “Power Ball” to make you feel better.
These delectable little bites of goodness have all kinds of healthy ingredients. Toasted oatmeal, three kinds of seeds, nuts, organic almond butter, honey, maple syrup, dried fruits, and a hint of cinnamon. My husband, who prefers a giant chocolate chip cookie to almost anything else, asked me to make more. That means a lot coming from the original Cookie Monster.
The oatmeal, seeds, and nuts are toasted to bring out the wonderful flavors. They are then mixed in a food processor (you need a food processor for this recipe) along with the other ingredients. The dough will be stiff and look like this:
The dough is then formed into small balls and rolled in toasted coconut, if desired. I love them with the coconut. They make a great snack any time of day and you don’t need to feel guilty. I came up with this recipe after tasting something similar at a bakery in Alaska. They can be packed into pretty tins or jars for a gift and will last a long time if kept airtight.
Make and eat some before the next huge lottery comes around. Who knows? It might bring some luck! In the meantime, make a batch and you’ll feel better that you didn’t win the $600 million. Well… maybe that’s taking it a little too far, but have a few and you’ll feel good and healthy.
