Although these balls might not look as the most decadent dessert they are actually surprisingly sweet and moreish. The Udo’s Choice Beyond Green powder adds some much amazing alkaline green goodness without compromising the taste. The raspberry jam filling is just the perfect little surprise when you bite into them and their sweetness goes so well with the bitterness of the green powder.
They are a great afternoon pick me up to keep in the fridge for whenever a sugar crave strikes.
Makes about 12-14 balls
½ cup of oats
½ cup of ground almond
1 tablespoon of Udo’s Choice Beyond Greens
3 tablespoons of agave nectar
½ cup of shredded coconut for coating
A splash of vanilla extract
For the raspberry jam:
1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries
2 tablespoon of chia seeds
2 tablespoon of coconut sugar (optional)
Start by making the jam:
Place the raspberries in pan with a splash of water on a medium heat. Cover with the lid and bring it to boil. Once the fruit start to bubble away turn the heat down to a simmer. Add the chia seeds, and coconut sugar. Cook the jam on a low heat for about 20-25 minutes until it becomes gloopy and thick.
Don’t worry if it’s slightly runny when still hot, it will thicken up during cooling process.
To make the balls place the oats into a blender and blend until you have a flour kind of consistency. Transfer the oat flour into a bowl and add the ground almond and Udo’s Beyond Greens Powder. Combine everything well.
Add the agave nectar and the vanilla extract and mix well. At this point you should have a sticky and solid dough. Roll it into balls. With one of your fingers press down into the ball to make a small dent. put about ½ teaspoon of the raspberries jam in the hole and with your finger close back the ball. Roll all the balls onto the shredded coconuts. Refrigerate them for a couple of hours and enjoy!
