Free Recipe Tuesday

11 May

I say “Free” not because I usually charge for my recipes, but because this recipe comes from a complementary magazine offered by one of my fave grocery stores, Rachelle-Bery. Free Recipe Tuesdays may not be a weekly occurrence, but will hopefully will be bi-weekly, and will always come from generous cookbook authors and free publications!

Sunflower seed balls!

2 cups pitted dates

1 lb unsalted, natural sunflower seed butter

3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

1/2 cup shelled unsalted sunflower seeds, optional

. Put dates in food processor and process. You may need a few tablespoons of boiling water to help chop them up. Add seed butter and mix until smooth.

. Scoop mixture into a large bowl and add oats one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. With clean hands, form 1″ (2.5cm) balls and place on place on plate. If using, place sunflower seeds in a wide dish and roll each ball in the seeds. Place finished balls on plate and refrigerate.

. Makes 25 balls.
