A reader named Katherine recently emailed me to tell me that my ‘balls‘ were a huge hit in her office, and her co-workers kept asking for more of Angela’s balls!!

That makes me giggle.

I’ve been in a ball kind of mood lately, so I present to you the next three fabulous ball variations..

Healthy Halloween Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls (Versions 2, 3, 4)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ground raw cashews
  • 1 cup ground oats
  • 1.5 cup ground walnuts
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 heaping T of carob powder
  • 1 heaping T of cocoa
  • Shredded coconut

Directions:

Dough: Grind up raw cashews and oats in a food processor. Place ookie dough ingredients (except for cocoa, carob and coconut) into a large bowl and mix by hand or with a spoon. Mix until a dough forms and you can make a large ball. If your dough is too sticky add more ground walnuts or cashews to make it thicker. Divide batter into 3 equal parts and place in 3 small bowls. In one of the parts mix in the cocoa powder. In another part, mix in the carob, and in the last part just leave it as is. This will form the three flavours of balls. Pop the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and pop into the freezer for 10 mins.

Melt chocolate. Remove balls from freezer and dip into the chocolate if preferred. Sprinkle with chia seeds. Roll other balls in coconut. Pop into freezer to set again and then remove and leave at room temperature. Easy as that!

If you want to roll them in coconut you may want to leave your dough a bit sticky.

Oh yum! My coworker also has balls that she makes, but they are definitely not as healthy as this. I just might have to introduce these “lean balls” into my office.

Happy Glow-versary!

The balls look delicious! Very tempting… The texture of your Glo Bars looks great too. I’m guessing international shopping is not in your immediate future nor a franchise ;)

Those look amazing Angela! I wish I would have seen these before Halloween because I totally would have made them as a Halloween treat for us. I may have to just make them anyway.

Those cookie dough balls look delicious. You’re so creative! I hope you had a Happy Halloween yesterday.

I have a random question about your knee sleeves. I know you use them and I think I remember you buying a new brand recently that you didn’t like as much. I was wondering what brand you did like or if you could recommend a brand to me? I would really like to start wearing knee sleeves as I have bad knees and don’t want to further injure them. Thanks!
