I came home from work wanting one thing. A cookie. Since I live in a tiny 15 x 15 ft room, with no kitchen, my choices were limited. I decided to make a freezer cookie ball. I don’t think those words can ever go wrong ;)
I started off with 1/2 a cup of almond butter, and a 1/4 of a cup of honey. mmmmm……..
These 2 ingredients were then stirred together with love. My forms of measuring are pretty hilarious, I have nothing to measure with but an old single serving apple sauce container that I know holds 4 ounces [a.k.a = 1/2 a cup] so everything I make is gauged off of this. Rockin’ it in style in the dorm room.
Then 1/2 cup of raw oats, + another 1/4 cup was stirred into the mix.
Lots of cinnamon
A dash of unsweetened shredded coconut
Mix. Mix. Mix. Scoop out. Roll into balls. Roll then said balls into more shredded coconut. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in fridge, or freezer. Lick the spoon. The other spoon. And the bowl. Done.
I was so excited to have something turn out after my treacherous pumpkin breakfast.
I ate one before it had settled in the fridge long enough, but it was still very tasty. Coconut butter and/or dark chocolate chips would be a nice future addition to these. :D
I can’t wait to try one from the freezer tomorrow. There are rewards for patience ;)Recipe: Almond Butter, Honey, Coconut Balls ~ 1/2 cup of almond butter 1/4 cup of honey about 3/4 cup of raw oats lots of cinnamon spoonful of unsweetened shredded coconut + extra for rolling balls in Mix almond butter and honey together first – then add oats, cinnamon, and coconut.
