Ok, I have to admit, it should only be prepared by people who don’t tend to get addicted! I’m not kidding, these little balls are absolutely dangerous and super fast gone… 😉 Super delicious and right out of the freezer a real culinary delight for your morning cappuccino or iced coffee. They remind me a bit of Giotto, but are much healthier and thanks to the peanut butter small protein bliss balls! Plus, you get lots of good fats!
Instead of sugar or a syrup I use erythritol. Erythritol is a bit sweeter than sugar per gram but has no calories nor taste. More will follow soon on my blog.
Amaranth-Peanutbutter-Balls (vegan & gluten free)
serves 18 balls
40 g popped amaranth
30 g erythritol
130 g peanut butter
10 g coconut oil
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- Mix everything in a bowl using a fork.
- Use a teaspoon to make each ball. One teaspoon serves approximately one ball. Try to make balls using your hands.
- Put the amaranth-peanut butter-balls into the freezer for ca. 10 minutes. Enjoy ice cold!
As an alternative to erythritol you can also use about 40 g of agave syrup. But then you should omit the coconut oil and use a little more amaranth, otherwise they are too sticky. You can also mix some shredded coconut or a little cocoa powder.
Try to use peanut butter with just one ingredient: peanuts! Usually peanut butter has other ingredients besides sugar and is not that natural.
I like to enjoy them cold from the freezer or fridge. How and when do you like them best?
