Are you looking for a healthy snack that’s not going to aggravate the qualities of Vata; dry, light, and cold like granola or protein bars, chips, and popcorn?

These are a great healthy and moist alternative! Great for traveling, kids sport outings, an after school snack or as a simple dessert!

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 C plus 2 TBSP raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 C plus 2 TBSP of Shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 3 TBPS raisins
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower butter
  • 1/2 tsp of coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp of cardamom powder
  • 1/3 C maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Directions :

In a dry sauté pan, over medium-high heat, dry roast the sunflower seeds and toss frequently until they are slightly brown.
Grind the sunflower seeds in blender to a coarse meal.
Mix all the ingredients (minus the 2 TBSP of coconut) together in a mixing bowl, press and roll in the palm of your hand into 1 inch balls.
On a flat plate spread out the remaining 2 TBSP of coconut. Roll the balls into the coconut as a light coating garnish.

Enjoy!

*You can keep these in an air tight container in the fridge and enjoy throughout the week!
