As much as I think balls is possibly the worst name ever created for food, experimenting with power balls recipe is one of my favourites. I usually quickly scan my pantry for possible ingredients, pile up all jars on a counter, turn on the food processor and off ball making process begins.
This time I ended up with Christmas flavoured energy balls filled with roasted salted pistachios, dried cranberries and naturally sweet banana. No added sugar. Well, maybe in cranberries if you use sweetened ones.
Reposting this power balls recipe 2 weeks later than I made it makes me want to grab one from the screen. Ugh. These were so good I even didn’t get to freeze any. Gone in 3 days from the fridge.
I love power balls so much because they make a quick clean snack and you control the amount of sugar. When eating clean snacks could be hard, especially the ones without any prep. These balls (ugh, what is up with this word) were delicious with just the right amount of sweetness from dried berries and saltiness and roast-ness from pistachios. I buy shelled ones at Costco.
