5-6 bananas, ripe, mashed (moist base)
1 cup each of old-fashioned oats, shredded coconut, & cooked quinoa (I sprout them overnight with some sea salt and room temp filtered water then stove cook for 15-20 minutes until fluffy)
add up to 2 (max) cups of your choice (dried fruits, choco chips, nuts, etc)
1/2 cup of nut butter, if you decide to
1/2 cup sweetener of choice (monkfruit is my preference for the most minimal impact, but I like succanat or palm sugar for it’s caramel-ly flavors)
few pinches of himalayan pink salt
dollop of real vanilla bean paste
1/8 cup of Lucuma (optional)
2 tablespoons of Maca (optional)
3 dashes of Ceylon cinnamon
I love put in chia seeds, goji berries for extra goodness
mix up and put in fridge or 20 min or so and preheat oven to 380.
scoop with a cookie scooper or round into balls by hand and bake at 380 for about 30 minutes (longer if the balls are larger b/c this is a very moist recipe).  I like to leave in the oven until the outside is a bit crisp and browned b/c it will soften anyway and it adds a nice flavor.
You can also use pumpkin or pureed apples along with or instead of bananas, but the bananas always lends the most adhesive sweetness…
Also, any choco chips, carob chips or any kind of desserty chips makes it more of a treat and fun.
For dessert type balls pictured above with a happy veganized frosting, I add 3/4 cup of a natural sweetener of choice along with a couple packets of stevia (sucanat and stevia in combination work great!)
I was first inspired by a a recipe on Vega (a super vegan protein powder product) and have made it my own with endless tweaks!  Hope you enjoy doing the same! 🙂
