Meg Colvin is back with a killer recipe to power your body through the rest of the week.
I saw a recipe on my favorite food bloggers site for no sugar added chocolate chip cookie dough balls and decided to use the base and sort of combo this recipe with a low sugar trail mix cookie that I make. The results were perfect! I can grab a couple of these on my way to the studio and know that they’re fueling me without adding any extra sugar to my morning I’ll save that for a Sunday night!
No sugar added power balls
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup organic nut butter of choice (I’m partial to cashew and almond)
1/2 c gluten free organic oats
1/4 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 c or less dried fruit of choice, unsweetened (I love dried cherries!)
1/8 c sunflower seeds or pepitas, hulled
1/3 c cacao nibs
1/2 tsp cinnamon (or more if you’re like me!)
1/4 tsp vanilla or 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
2 tbsp chia or hemp seeds
Dash of nutmeg
Dash of salt
1. Roughly chop the dried fruit into tiny pieces
2. Combine cashews, nut butter, and oats in a high power blender or food processor until well combined and smooth. Stir or pulse in the rest.
3. Roll into bite sized balls
4. Put in a parchment lined Tupperware container and freeze for 30 minutes, then enjoy!
