they turned out a bit sweeter than i thought they would. but were fun to make. and damn i really love the rebar cookbook!
edit: i've added the recipe behind the cut. sorry people. :) if you go check out my food journal you can see pictures of what's gone into them, like pumpkin seeds.
powerspheres (rebar modern food cookbook)
3/4 cup (180ml) dried apricots
3/4 cup (180ml) dried apple
4 brown rice cakes
1 cup (240ml) unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup (120ml) sunflower seeds
1/2 cup (120ml) pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup (80ml) sesame seeds
1/2 cup (120ml) rolled oats
1 1/4 cup (300ml) fruit sweetener (i used agave nectar/syrup, 354grams)
1/2 cup (120ml) natural peanut butter, slightly warmed
"helpful hint" from the recipe... bring out the nutty flvaours of the seeds and oats by toasting them in a hot, dry skillet first. toast each seed variety and the oats separately, cool them to room temperature and then proceed with the recipe.
1. in a food processor, pulse the apricots, apples and rice cakes to a fine texture. transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
2. next, pulse the coconut, seeds, and oats to rougly combine. add to the fruit mixture, along with the fruit sweetener and peanut butter. (i mixed the fruit sweetener and peanut butter together before adding it to the seeds/oats/fruit.) mix everything together until well combined. cover and chill the dough for at least 1 hour.
3. roll the dough into balls, approximately 2 oz (60g). roll the balls in toasted sesame seeds to coat, pressing them in slightly. serve, or wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
