I kick off this blog with a recipe:
For the past year and a half, the husband and I have been doing our best to stay Gluten Free (GF) as much as we can. We don't freak if we can't get a GF option for what we want, neither of us are celiac, however we definitely do like the way we feel when we eat a predominantly GF diet - made from scratch - not processed.
Inspired by my absolute favorite KIND Bars
AMAZE-BALLS' (My husband and best friends all decided to start calling them Amaze-balls after eating the first one)
First I gathered my ingredients,
Chopped them into itty-bitty pieces, tossed them into a bowl.
I then mixed the honey into my ingredients, till just covered, and placed it into a prepared pan, off they went at 300 degrees (F) oven for 30 mins and slightly golden brown.
Oh I forgot to mention, I totally added GF Chocolate Chips before rolling the balls. Totally worth it. :)
Once cooled, I popped them into cupcake cups and into a container. This will stay good in your refrigerator for up to two weeks, but it only lasted like 3~4 days in my house, because my husband love love LOVED these!
What is great about this recipe is, you can totally use any nuts and seeds that you like / have around, and feel free to adjust the amount of either ingredient, based on your preference. This recipe is super easy to play around with!
1 Cup Chopped Pecans, chopped (I would increase this to 2 cups in my next recipe, I loved the flavor!)
2 Cups Cashews, chopped
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
1/2 Cup Pine Nuts, whole
2 Tablespoons Flax Seeds
1/2 Cup Pitted Dates, chopped up into small pieces
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats (GF)
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
A pinch of Kosher Salt
1/2 Cup Honey, use less / more to coat incase you make less or more of the mixture
**1/2 Cup GF Chocolate Chips, This is an optional add in, after your mixture has come out of the oven
