Healthy Butter Balls 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups raw walnuts

  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature (between liquid and solid)

  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup

  • 1 cup oat flour ( create by placing oatmeal in a blender) or  substitute spelt flour (sub whole wheat, or spelt flour.

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder (sub 1 1/2 tsp extract, link below for brand)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add walnuts to a food processor and pulse until they form a fine crumble, slightly chunkier than flour. If you don't have a food processor, hand chop into very small pieces.

  2. In a standing mixer or with a hand-mixer, cream butter and coconut oil together on high until creamy and slightly fluffy, approximately 1 minute.

  3. Add maple sugar and mix, then flour, vanilla and sea salt. Mix everything until just incorporated, then finally add walnut meal until incorporated. Turn dough out onto saran wrap and wrap tightly in a ball. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove from fridge and roll dough into 16 1 1/2 inch balls, spacing them 2 inches apart on baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 18 minutes or until the top is mostly solid to touch (it will harden as it cools). Cool completely to avoid crumbling. Options sprinkle with coconut flakes finely ground in blender. Enjoy
