I created these because I LOVE cinnamon, it has been my saving grace since eliminating sugars, and I was craving a cinnamon raisin bun. I wanted to make something that incorporated those flavors but without the guilt and gluten. There's no guilty gluten or silly sugars in these babies. Every bite is a delight!
Cinnamon Raisin Balls - makes 10 balls
1 1/2 cups raw Cashews
1/2 cup raw Walnuts
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use BSN brand)
3 oz Raisins, no sugar added
1 pkt Stevia
1/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Gluten-free Puffed Brown Rice
1. Place first six ingredients into a blender and blend until mixture starts to stick together. Don't blend too much as you want a little crunch.
2. Remove contents from blender and put into a medium sized bowl. Add the liquid ingredients first and mix well. It will become quite sticky now. Add the puffed rice and stir through.
3. Using a dessert spoon, or just your hands, scoop out small amounts of the mixture and roll into little balls in your hands.
4. Place in an air-tight container and store in the fridge.
