Now because of my bezzie mates over at the Yorkshire Meatball Company, I know every ball innuendo going. And to be honest, balls are much more their area than mine (oo er), especially their amazing new meaty balls available in ACTUAL SHOPS for real .
Sorry I’ve not gone all PR on you… I am just long-windedley setting up my very own POWER BALLS!
Packed full of pure, sexy, nutty energy these tasty badboys are perfect pre-workout for a boost.
I am a ‘chuck it in’ type when it comes to cooking thanks to my mum and Jamie Oliver, but I have tried to make this coherent and follow-able.
Ingredients (To make six)
I am lucky to have a Wholefoods by my work in Soho, and a rather fabulous independent one near me on Stroud Green Road, Finsbury Park. But you should be able to get your mits on most this lot in your average Sainsbo’.
- 2 big tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 2 x tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 x tablespoon almond butter
- 1 x teaspoon of molasses
- Few shakes of Madagascan vanilla essence
- Teaspoon of Tahini
- Bag of oats
- Flaxseed (around 1-2 tbsp)
Melt the tasty ingredients minus the oats and seeds into a saucepan, taste it and mess around until you have a gorgeous nutty vanilla flavour. Cooking for me is all about tasting and adding, the more you do it the more confident you will be, and you will start to be able to understand what flavour compliments or cancels out another. That is what makes it a science (but not an exact one!).
Take off the heat. Start to shake in the flaxseed and the oats (more oats than seed), mix with wooden spoon until the mixture is no longer sticky and it slips off the side of the pan.
Time to get messy! Grab some in your hands and start rolling into a beautiful ball about this big.
Then simply whack them in the fridge overnight so the coconut oil sets and you have a delicious and nutritious snack- that doesn’t cost £2.50 per jeffing ball!
Sprinkle with Stevia just to be a pretentious Paul.
