Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

These energy balls definitely tick all the taste bud boxes. You have a little saltiness and you also have the sweet flavor. They are a favorite in our house and do not last very long. I discovered them when I was looking for a low FODMAP snack.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls
FODMAP Everyday
Makes about 18 and the serving size is 2 balls

Ingredients:
1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
1 cup old-fashioned oats ( I use gluten-free oats)
1/3 cup rice malt syrup (brown rice syrup)
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
2-1/2 ounces dark chocolate ( I use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Preparation:

1. Combine all the ingredients really well in a bowl with your hands, a sturdy wooden spoon or silicone spatula. It’s going to take some elbow grease because the rice syrup is very sticky. You can also mix them in a stand mixer fitted with a flat paddle.

2. Roll mixture into small 1-inch to 1-1/4-inch balls. The mixture needs to be compressed firmly using your fingers and palms. I refrigerate before eating. Store in airtight container or freeze up to a month.

Enjoy!

Pickle Pizza

I know it may sound crazy but try it, you will love it! A friend of mine posted this on Facebook so I figured out the recipe and it has become one of our favorites!

Pickle Pizza
The Sweet Plant Life
Serves 4-6

Ingredients:
Your favorite pizza dough
Vegan ranch dressing (I use Daiya)
Your favorite plant-based mozzarella cheese
Dill pickles

Preparation:
Prepare the pizza dough according to package directions. Next top with the ranch dressing. Place mozzarella cheese on top then top with pickles.

Bake according to your pizza crust directions. I placed it under the broiler for a bit to melt the cheese and brown it a bit.

You can add as many pickles as you want depending on your taste. Hope this becomes one of your favorites!
