What really sends this No-Bake Ball skyrocketing above and beyond the delicious (and nutritious) edge is the Wild Blueberries. While other treats cause inflammation and damage in the body that can wreak havoc on your insides, the Wild Blueberries do the opposite and they even have TWICE the antioxidants compared to regular blueberries!
So don’t be fooled by their smaller size—they pack a powerful punch. They’re jammed-packed with a variety of natural phytochemicals such as anthocyanins which prevent or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals so they keep your cells healthy! They truly are Mother Nature’s perfect berry; a superfruit –and with less inflammation we’re talking more calm insides with prettier skin, a stronger body and one that’s better at removing toxins from overindulgence.
5-Ingredient Wild Blueberry Granola Balls (No-Bake!)
½ Cup quick oats
2 Tbs almond butter
2 Tbs honey
1 Tbs coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons Wild Blueberries, fresh or frozen, thawed, juice drained
Place oats, almond butter, honey and coconut oil in a medium-sized bowl and stir until mixture is smooth and thoroughly combined. The mixture may be crumbly at first, but once you roll it into balls it will stick together.
Once blueberries have thawed, (they can be cold, just not frozen) drain off the juice and delicately place them on a paper towel to rid the extra liquid. Add them to the oat mixture and stir in until they are combined.
Using your hands press the mixture into a tablespoon. After you have measured the right amount, firmly form the mixture into a ball and then start to roll it in between your hands. The ball should be compact and tight. Once it is formed into a perfectly smooth ball, place it on a plate.
Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator, this will allow the coconut oil to harden and for the ball to solidify.
