Of course when I was a child those were made from cookie crumbles, butter, sugar and some colorant, of which health safety I am not particularly certain. Still we rolled everything together and formed them as cherries. And then we ate them.
You’d assume that by writing mostly about healthy foods now I’d be disgusted and would be throwing up in my mouth by that mental image. The drool dripping on my keyboard right now suggests otherwise.
Those little balls were beyond delicious.
These days I make healthy balls, and these here are beauty balls that are also very very very tasty, very good as a snack or as a small dessert.
They’re made with apple flour, which right now I am obsessed with. It’s made entirely from dried apples and it’s perfect for paleo-friendly and gluten-free meals – I put it in pancakes, breads or in toppings to thicken them.
Here I used the apple flour to keep these apple flour cinnamon beauty together, because I really don’t like it when they’re too soft.
You can use them as a snack, a little dessert or even for breakfast.
Also you can give them names, draw faces on them, make tiny clothes for them, take pictures with them, just be nice – they’re good for you.
I almost named them quite creatively power balls like about 897352865196579657215657856 other people name their balls online. But I decided beauty to win over power, because what’s a world without beauty?
