BEST GLUTEN-FREE DESSERT BALLS | paleo + no refined sugar


*music* Hi I’m Steph Gaudreau from Stupid Easy
Paleo and today we’re making my Amaze Balls recipe. This is super easy. I decided to make this recipe because there is a similar type of treat that you
can buy in the store. I was buying these from the store in these little packets
and I thought, “You know what? This is ridiculous. I can figure out how to make
these at home and they’re probably gonna be way cheaper.” We start off with dry
ingredients in a bowl and that is blanched almond flour, but the almond
flour is really fine and it’s a nice light color and texture. So you want to
look for blanched almond flour that’s had the skins removed. To that we add
some unsweetened shredded coconut and a pinch of sea salt. We mix that up
with our hands. And then to that I add the wet ingredients. For this recipe I
used some raw local honey but you could use maple syrup or any other liquid
sweetener that you like. Then I added some coconut oil – that really is the
binder that helps all of this stick together – and then a little bit of
vanilla extract and that forms the base of the recipe. The really cool part is
that you get to customize it with whatever flavors you like. Today we
add in mini chocolate chips to make a chocolate chip sea salt
version of these Amaze Balls. In the past I’ve also used matcha green tea
powder. It’s fun to take the dried strawberries that you get – the
freeze-dried strawberries – at the grocery store, blend them down in a food
processor and add that. Super cool… they taste like a strawberry explosion. So you can really customize these with whatever flavors you like…spices, add-ins…and they’re super easy. You just mix everything together, scoop it out, roll
them out in balls, and you’ve got a perfect simple treat. For the full recipe
