This recipe creation has such a silly story. I wanted to warm Benjamin’s oats in the oven (it was stillwarm after I used it) and it came out like a literal cake.
Then the idea of making these cake balls for him came to life! Ofcourse I had to test it out first before I could share it with you.
The ingredients are simple and so is the method. Feel free to make your own flavours and coatings.
This is just a basic recipe for Benjamin as he really loves theses. Let’s get started!
FIRST, put the oven on 200°C
-1 cup raw instant oats (I used FutureLife Smart Oats)
-50ml of milk (I used Buttanutt Oat milk)
-pinch of salt
-1 teaspoon raw honey
-2 squeeze packets/ 65g of Buttanutt nutspread
-you might need a little hot water to add to your mixture for more moisture if needed
-Mix all ingredients together except for the nutspread. You want a firm texture to roll into little balls
-Grease a baking tray
-Roll mixture into balls and place on tray
-Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown
-Let it cool
-Coat with nutspread
-Decorate with sprinkles or shredded coconut
-Put in fridge for spread to set or enjoy as is!
NOTE: Feel free to add a scoop of protein to your mixture if it is for yourself and enjoy as an post/pre workout snack.
