Dreena Burton's "Sweetballs"

(2016-11-14 16:09:57)

I really love Dreena Burton's recipes. And this is one very good and quick. When you have nut allergy or you must omit the nuts (because of school, for example), replace the walnuts and almond with 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds and 1/3 cup of hemp seeds. You can try forming patties with this mixture for quick and scrumptious burgers.

You will need

1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup cooked and cooled sweet potato, skins removed
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tbsp tamari
1 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary or thyme
1 clove garlic (or more for extra garlic bite)


Place the walnuts, almonds, oats and garlic to the food processor and process through until crumbly. Then add the sweet potato, nutritional yeast, mustard, herb and tamari and process until just well combined. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take scoops of the mixture and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and just firm to the touch. Remove, and serve with pasta or tomato sauce, or as an appetizer with dipping sauce.
