Easy quinoa peppermint dessert balls
This is one of our family’s favorite recipes. Quinoa plus dessert. How can it get any better!
Our kids had fun making this with their momma. And they were asking for second and third and fourth helpings…
The best part? They’re easy. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself…
Peppermint balls: Ingedients
- 1/4 Cup coconut butter, melted (or coconut oil)
- 1/4 tsp peppermint oil, alcohol free (Frontier brand has a good one)
- 1 scoop stevia (Try to buy the kind without fillers — just stevia)
- 1/2 Cup plus 2 Tbs quinoa, cooked and cooled (It’s very important that this is cooled.)
- Carob powder
Peppermint dessert balls: Instructions
- Measure the dry coconut butter packed together.
- Put in a glass bowl and set in a pot of water.
- Melt over low to medium heat.
- Add peppermint oil and stevia.
- Add quinoa and stir.
- Let cool for about 3 minutes. (If it’s not cooled enough, it will be difficult to form into balls.)
- Form into balls about 1 inch in diameter–about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon in amount.
- Set on plate and sprinkle with carob powder. Rolling the balls in the powder also works.
- Refrigerate for an hour — If you can hold out that long!
