Here is a little something we whipped up and then rolled up the other day. These little guys do pack a powerful punch, providing lots of sustaining energy and deliciousness. The little one dug them too.

My intention was for them to be 100% raw, but i couldn't find the raw buckwheat groats for the life of me. So we used toasted ones (i.e., Kasha). Next time i make them they will be fully un-cooked.

Donia's Powerballs
1/2 cup buckwheat groats
1/2 cup raw unhulled sesame seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup chia seeds
5 opened up caps of Aquazon
3/4 cups dates

In a food processor combine Buckwheat, Sesame Seeds, Coconut, Chia Seeds, Cacao Nibs, Powershake, and Aquazon. Process until a coarse powder (admittedly not all the seeds will be totally powder-y).

Add dates. Let dates get integrated into the mix. Add Cashew butter. This should make everything more dough-y. Add more cashew butter if its not coming together enough (for a nut-free version you could use tahini or sunflower seed butter).

Roll into balls or other shapes. Thank the universe for such marvels. Enjoy!

Since i didn't take any pictures of these treats (little hands kept on snatching away, biting into, and putting back what was on the plate), here is a photo of the lovely raw choco-coconut pudding we had a few weeks ago (in my great-grandma's bubble bowls). When it is recreated the recipe will be shared.
