Molassas Fruit & Nut Balls
So we have been talking about developing a recipe to get our kiddos their daily molasses (and maybe even fish oil) dose using a “raw” or non-baked cookie ball. And I want to talk ingredients as they relate to taste, price & fiber content.
Camilla, you mentioned the importance of finding the perfect balance of fiber, no more, no less.
Can we use this post to discuss our options?
I think cashew would have the best texture, but it’s also expensive. Almonds?
Do we do prunes? I love the idea of dates, but again they are very expensive. Raisins? Craisins?
Can we use fish oil or will that give them a bad taste? Tracy said the orange flavor tastes like orangesicle. That sounds promising.
Lastly I was thinking about rolling them in something to make them less sticky?
Coconut? Ground nuts?
I’m ready to start prototyping. I just need some feedback first. I’m going to make them “cheerio” size and see if Pooka will eat them on her own.
Here are a few sample recipes I found online. I can use these to gauge proportions.
