I love breakfast balls they seriously make morning s easier, getting myself and three little kids (5,3,1) out the door and where we all need to go gets a bit hectic some mornings. Taking the time over the weekend ans making some breakfast balls is always time well spent. I can put a couple in my bag and have them on the way to work if I didn’t get to sit down and have breakfast with the kids.
The kids also like them too as an afternoon snack or a snack after swimming, they’re great little lunch box fillers too.
I find it so hard to mix it up all the time and make foods that the kids like
Nut Free Breakfast Balls
2 cups nut-free toasted muesli
1 cup mejool dates or dried dates (pits removed)
1/4 teaspoon mixed spice
1/4 cup raw honey
50g melted butter
Good handful of dried cranberries
For rolling ½ cup nut-free toasted muesli
- Add muesli, dates, mixed spice, raw honey and butter in a food processor until well combined.
- Add the cranberries and combine.
- Add the remaining muesli in a bowl. Roll approx. 2 teaspoon of the mixture into a ball and roll into the muesli to stop them sticking.
- Place on a lined baking tray and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes (or until firm)
