*Update: The recipe for this post has been one of the most popular recipes on The Diva Dish. It’s an older post, I only have 1 wee babe, so if you want to skip to the recipe go ahead and scroll to the bottom!
The Food Processor I own is this one HERE. (affiliate link)*
Thanks to Baby Boo’s slight obsession over my computer, and her constant need to touch the key board…
My computer screen is now magnified enough for a 97 year old to read the monitor…
It’s making me dizzy…
So this past week Baby Boo and I took a trip up to my parents house, and hubby met us there later in the week. We had alot of fun, that was until…
Baby Boo got sick…again.
This time her cold turned into something worse, and we spent many hours at the hospital/doctors…Baby Boo hated it.
So did Mama.
What Baby Boo had was pretty bad, and I was worried she was going to be miserable the whole week at my parents. But, she shined through on this one! She is such a good sport and managed to sneak a smile in here and there! =]
Such a trooper!
So, while Grandma spoiled Baby Boo, I watched the Hubby get a little Too into a game of Ping Pong.
He wanted me to take action shots of him.
Cuz he thought it would be sooo cool.
Here you go sweety!!
Look Ma NO ARMS!
I probably should redeem myself for that one…
I asked if I could play, but I was turned away. Geeze Loose 4 Balls and they NeVeR forget!!
Well if I can’t play with their Ping Pong Balls…
Then I’ll Make My Own…
- ½ c. walnuts
- ½ c. pitted dates
- ½ c. almonds
- ½ c. unsweetened coconut
- ¾ c. oats
- 3 TB. dark chocolate or cocoa nibs
- ½ c. pure maple syrup
- ⅓ c. peanut butter or almond butter, unsweetened
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- In a food processor, blend the ingredients one by one, starting with the walnuts. Process until small crumbs appear, don't over process or you will have a walnut butter :).
- Next add dates, process until crumbs. Followed by almonds, then coconut, oats, and lastly chocolate.
- Once a thick crumb texture appears, add in the syrup, nut butter, and vanilla. Process until a thick dough forms into a ball.
- Roll into inch sized balls on cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper. Store in an air tight container in the fridge. Last 1-2 weeks, balls can be frozen.
These balls are totally share-worthy.
Whether or not I decided to share…
Is up to me…
They taste JUST peanut butter cookie dough,
minus the un-healthy ingredients!
Baby Boo is trying to convince me she is ALL better so she can have a Ball herself…
Nice try sweet heart.
Maybe Mama will share with you when your not all gums!
As for now…
I only share with me, myself, and I..
