Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day!!
I know this recipe is getting to you a little late, but better late than never, right?
I wanted to make something green. I had high hopes of making a green-themed pie last week to celebrate π day and St. Patrick’s Day, but alas, it didn’t work out. You can however check out my delicious pie from last year. I made some snackies instead.
My first edition of Snacky Balls were so popular that I’ve made a few different versions over the years. They are quick and easy to make and you really can make them any way that you like – they are versatile tiny treats!
Spirulina Snackies (makes 12 tiny treats)
1/4 cup of hazelnuts (any nut/seed will work)
1/4 cup of oats
2 dates (I would have used more, that’s all I had on hand!)
2 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tsp of shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 tsp of spirulina powder (use less if you are not used to the taste as it is a bit of an acquired taste)
Throw the nuts and oats in your food processor and process until everything looks well broken down. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until a sticky dough forms. Scoop out the mixture by the teaspoon-full and roll into cute, little balls. Refrigerate until ready to snack.
