almond butter chews Featured

I had one of those aha moment early this AM. I was in the process of making some almond butter chews (aka Bird Food Balls), when I realized that I was having major issues with the balls falling apart. It's the honey! It may seem sticky, but it doesn't really do the job holding the balls together. 

Hello brown rice syrup.

BRS really does do the trick. It keeps the balls nice and compact. I also like BRS because it doesn't have such a powering flavor like honey does.

Almond Butter Chews

Ingredients (yields 14-15 balls)

-1/4C almond butter

-1/4C brown rice syrup

-1C millet puffs or puffed brown rice cereal

-1/4C raisins

Method

1. First melt your almond butter (if need be).

2. Then, transfer into a medium sized bowl and add brown rice syrup and mix.

3. Add millet puffs and raisins and mix until it becomes one big almond chew.

4. Roll dough between your palms to form balls.

Viola...you have balls that do not crumble!

These are pretty much the perfect after workout snack: whole grains, healthy fats, and protein. I'll take 10!
