OK, so none of us came out a winner in the big Powerball drawing this month. But here's the good news: you can still be a big winner in the kitchen, and that's almost as good. Right? Right!

When we get ready for the Billings Wholesale Market this weekend, we like to bring a cooler of healthy snacks to that will fuel us through those long, fun days sharing tea and good times with friends and fellow small business owners. This recipe was definitely a jackpot in the health, energy and taste departments, so we just had to share! 

Pecan, Maple, Oat & Honey Power Balls

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup gluten-frHoney Power Ballsee oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (preservative free is best)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp raw maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp honey (Of course, we're partial to ours!)
  • 3/4 cup pecan nuts
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • A little almond/rice milk/water as needed
  • 1 tbsp cocoa nibs (optional)

Method

Tumblewood Teas Honey
  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender/food processor and blend until finely chopped and well combined. 
  2. The mixture shouldn't be too dry. It needs to be quite sticky. Add a little almond milk to moisten it a little if needed.
  3. Scoop a heaped teaspoon of mixture and roll it between your palms to create little balls.
  4. Place the balls in the fridge for around 30 minutes or longer before you serve them. This helps them to set properly.
  5. Serve as a snack, with afternoon tea or dessert!

At the end, we rolled them in a little bit of additional shredded coconut just for fun, then added a cup of Custer's Nutty Rooibos. It's a wonderfully fragrant blend of South African rooibos and sweet pure white coconut with notes of caramel. Perfect!
