It is requiring every fiber of my being not to make some middle school-aged joke comparing the size and nuttiness of this treat to it’s anatomical counterpart. Instead, I’ll attempt to act my own age and point out that I am forever on the quest to find easy to make, and even easier to eat, breakfast snacks. Something I can grab from the fridge as I rush out the door in the morning. Something that will tide me over until I get the chance to sneak either a more complete breakfast, or a large handful of saltine crackers.
Here’s the most recent attempt at a nutritious, energy laden, bite sized snack. Our cafeteria at the hospital makes something similar, but a fellow resident recently challenged us to make our own. Here’s my attempt.
- 1.5 cups raisins
- 0.5 cup walnuts
- 0.5 cup dark chocolate chips
- 0.5 cup brown flax seed, ground
- Place all of the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until everything is sufficiently chopped (more raisins can be added if the mixture isn’t sticking well).
- Mold 1 inch balls.
- Eat right away or store in the fridge. Enjoy!
