FODMAP Friendly Vegan Energy Balls
As anyone who can’t tolerate fructose and other FODMAP’s knows, most energy balls use dates, honey, agave cashew nuts, peanut butter and other dried fruits. All big NO NO ingredients for folks like us. My FODMAP Friendly Vegan Energy Balls are refined sugar free, full of protein, healthy oils, vitamins and minerals.
I use pure green leaf, Stevia powder and Rice Malt Syrup to sweeten these bliss balls.
Like all my recipes on Livingsafe.com.au, I use where possible all organic ingredients.
So give these FODMAP FriendlyVegan Energy Balls. a whirl.
Ingredients – all organic if possible
* In Melbourne I get most of my dry organic ingredients from The Source Bulk Foods
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup of pecan nuts
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1/2 cup of Australian Hemp Seeds
1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
1 tsp of pure green leaf stevia powder ( Terra Madre in Northcote Melbourne sells this)
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
3 tbs of raw coconut oil
1/3 cup of hulled tahini paste
1 tsp of vanilla bean paste (optional)
3 tbs of just boiled hot water
1/3 cup of rice malt syrup
* I always use the Pure Harvest brand of Rice Syrup, as I know they keep a check on the Arsenic levels in the rice used to make their products
In a blender pulse to a coarse meal the pecan nuts and sunflower seeds.
Add all the dry ingredients to a glass or stainless steel bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk to combine.
In a seperate bowl stir all the wet ingredients into a smooth paste.
Add the paste into the dry ingredients. Combine as much as you can using a spoon first, then use your hands if necessary to combine further.
The next step is the messy but fun part, the shaping your mixture into your FODMAP Friendly Vegan Energy Balls . Take tablespoon amounts of mixture and press and roll into balls between your palms, so each ball is slightly smaller than the size of a ping pong ball.
The above mixture made 23 vegan energy balls.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
