ANZAC Bites

ANZAC Bites

April 22, 2018

It's ANZAC Day this week, and as the Anzac Biscuit recipes come thick and fast on your feeds and inboxes, I thought I'd mix it up a bit and take the authentic biscuit flavor and make it into a ball!

In my opinion, everything tastes good in a handy little bite! Plus, I'm lazy and these don't require cooking ;)

The school holidays are a perfect opportunity to get in the kitchen and stock up the fridge and pantry with lunch box fillers ready for when school goes back.  

These little bites or bliss balls are quick to make, just require a food processor and small bowl and are dairy free and low in sugar.

Let me know if you give them a try!

Makes: 12 balls

Time: 10 mins

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut 
  • 1Tbsp psyllium husk (optional but helps keep balls together)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup of rice malt syrup
  • 1 large Tbsp coconut butter (or coconut oil)
  • if needed, 1-2 Tbsp water or almond milk
  • extra coconut for rolling the bites in

DIRECTIONS:

1. In the bowl of a food processor, put almond flour, almonds, oats, coconut, psyllium husk and cinnamon and pulse to combine (not too much as you still want some nuts and oats chunky).

2. Combine rice malt syrup, coconut butter, and vanilla essence in a small bowl, then slowly pour into the food processor as it is mixing on low.

3. The mixture should now be of a consistency you can mold into balls with warm hands, however, if you feel it is still too crumbly, add a Tbsp at a time of almond milk until you can form balls.

4. Remove blade from processor and make 12 evenly sized balls from the mixture. Roll in extra coconut and transfer to the fridge for 1 hour before eating.

Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks
