Energy Balls Recipe

Ok, I finally got the recipe for these bundles of goodness. This is direct from the source. Hope you understand French!

Boules d’énergie – Recipe 1
1T de dattes haché grossièrement (1 tbs chopped dates)
1 orange (Juice of and zeste)
1T riz soufflé (rice krispies) – we used whole grain
6 c a soupe de noix de coco non sucré (1tsp coconut, unsweetened)
1 T canneberge séchées (dried cranberries)
1/4 T de graines de tournesol (sunflower seeds)
2 c a soupe de graines de sésame (sesame seeds)
Mix the juice of one orange and its zeste with the dates on low-medium heat.
Mix other ingredients together except the unsalted coconut and sesame seeds.
when the orange juice and date mix is relatively homogeneous, it is ready to mix in with the other ingredients.
once mixed, create balls and roll them in the sesame and coconut.
cook for about 12-15 minutes at 375.
Boules d’énergie – Recipe 2

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup oatmeal (I used a mix of wholeweat oatmeal flakes)
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1 cup raisins (I had replaced mine with cranberries because that's what we had)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon flax seed (optional)
1 tablespoon wheat germ (optional)
Mix everything together and refrigerate. That's it!! ENJOY.
