Here is a yummy alternative to white sugar laden treats this Holy Day Season. Try it folks! This recipe is brought to you from the recipes of April C. A good friend…
1/2 cup organic peanut butter
1/2 cup organic almond butter
1/3 cup honey
2 t unsweetened organic cocoa powder
1/2 cup organic raisins
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded organic coconut, divided
2 T cup organic oats (optional)
1/4 cup organic sesame seeds (optional)
1/4 cup finely chopped organic nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds etc.)
Mix peanut butter, almond butter, honey and cocoa powder until well combined. Stir in raisins, oats, and only 2 T of coconut. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Place remaining coconut, sesame seeds, and nuts into 3 separate bowls. Using a spoon, scoop small heaps of peanut mixture form bowl; roll into 1-1/4-inch balls (if they are too dry, add a small amount of water). Rolling is easier if you form a rough ball, roll in the coconut, and then continue rolling into a more perfect shape. Roll each finished ball into more coconut, sesame seeds and chopped nuts. Arrange the balls on a plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
