These balls are portable, tasty and nutrient dense. This recipe was developed to use organic Livfit superfood as it provides antioxidants, fiber and protein from whole food sources such as peas, hemp, chia seeds, quinoa, cranberries, cherries, blueberries, spinach, broccoli, beets, shiitake mushrooms, and green tea. It winds up smelling and tasting a bit of like a vitamin. The spices in the recipe cover up that vitamin taste and scent. So you get the benefit of the spices and nutrient density.
This recipe basically follows any “energy bite” recipe you’ve seen. I like to show people how to make a recipe without measuring and this is a great one to do that with.
Choose two Fist size portions of a nut or a fat & something that can make a butter or a paste. In the pictured recipe, I used Peanuts and pumpkin purée.
Choose two fist sized servings of two different seeds. Here I used pepitas and sunflower seeds. Consider raw if it fits the way you like to eat.
Blend the above with 1/2 cup Livfit super food powder. Any green supplement powder or protein powder would work depending on what you need for your health and activity. It should make a fairly nice, heavy paste.
Season to taste. I added 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie seasoning, a teaspoon of cinnamon, A pinch of salt, a pinch of red pepper and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir in a fist sized portion of a dried fruit of your choice. Then stir in 3-4 fist sized portions of a grain (or a combo) like oats, quinoa, wheat germ, oat bran. For these, I used gluten-free oats and dried cherries. Form into balls or, if you prefer bars, press into a cookie sheet and cut into squares. If you feel your balls are too moist, roll in a mixture of spices, seeds, cocoa, oats, or oat bran. If you feel the bar cookies you made are too moist, top with spices, oats, seeds, or bran. The topping will make the cookie feel and look more finished. Enjoy!
