Last night I made Sweet Potato Power Balls and have been enjoying them very much since then. The recipe I used came from the Scandi Foodie blog, one of my favourite spots online for vegan recipes.
Power Balls (makes 10)
450g cooked and mashed sweet potato
2 heaped tablespoons almond butter1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 teaspoons pure, raw cacao powder (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground licorice
virgin coconut oil, for rolling
unsweetened desiccated coconut, for rolling (optional)
1. Combine the sweet potato, almond butter and chia seeds in a bowl.
2. Mix together the cacao and the spices and stir into the mixture. You should have a gooey, sticky mixture. Rub your hands lightly with coconut oil and roll the dough into about 10 balls.
3. Chill the balls in the fridge (20-30 minutes), then roll the balls in desiccated coconut before serving. These will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
You can find the original post that contained the recipe and comments on conscious eating at “On conscious, mindful eating + A recipe for Power Balls!“. I recommend looking at the Scandi Foodie’s recipe index for more great food.
