Six Ingredient Spirulina Snackies

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.

I’m not a green beer kinda gal, but I’m sure I’ll have a nice homemade thick, green shake tomorrow =) Have a fun St. Patrick’s Day!

  1. happy st patrick’s day – we have just had an Irish a dinner as I could muster up energy for tonight! I read elsewhere that spirulina is an acquired taste – which is what I had thought from other discussions – are you a big fan – the snackies look like something I would love to taste but am wary about the green stuff (despite usually being a fan of green stuff)

    1. Your pie sounds so good!! I actually really like spirulina, it wasn’t much of an acquired taste for me. I don’t use much at a time as it can be a bit overpowering, but I really like it. A little goes a long way. You could always make them without spirulina =)
