Today I am bringing you a recipe for a healthy, nutritious snack – bites with baobab powder.
In the recipe I am using baobab powder produced by PandaVita. It is superfood powder you can use in many ways – drink it mixed into a beverage, for example your favourite smoothie, or just water. Use it as an extra ingredient for baking or sprinkle some over your salad or cereals. The taste is fruity, but a bit sour, so it can add an interesting twist to your favourite dishes.
Benefits of baobab powder
Why should you even care about another superfood powder? Let‘s have a look how you can benefit from incorporating baobab powder into your diet. It has got plenty of fibre, so it is good for your digestion. It also contains a lot of calcium, potassium, antioxidants and vitamin C. Read more about baobab powder here.
Recipe: Nutritious superfood bites with baobab powder
- 1 tbsp of baobab powder
- 1/2 of banana
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 10 brazil nuts
- handful of almonds
- 1-2 tsp of goji berries in raw chocolate
- 200g date and sesame spread
- 4 tsp of cocoa powder
- 10 dried prunes in chocolate
- 1 tsp of coconut oil
- 4 tsp of maple syrup
- 10 spoonfuls of oatflakes
- extra cinnamon and/or hemp shells for coating
Put everything in a food processor and whizz.
If you don’t have one or yours, like mine, refuses to cooperate and breaks down, just grate nuts, goji berries and prunes or cut them up into small pieces. Add to the rest of ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Scoop out spoon-sized chunks of the mixture and quickly form a ball with your hands. Be quick, because the chocolate will start melting quickly and it can become very messy very soon. Put the balls aside or roll them in coating of your choice. I tried cinnamon and hemp shells.
The ingredients stated above will give you around 25 balls – depends how big you make them. If you are not eating them straight away, put them in a plastic box and store them in a fridge.
