[Food] Making some energy ballz

So am on a cooking kick. I want to cook and make stuff. Then I was shown this recipe by Ganaesh, and well, I decided to give it a try.

Three items, but I substituted the cranberries for mixed choco chips, and the bananas for water. Both were because I preferred something crunchy over mush and not a fan of bananas.

This was what it looked like in the bowl:


Bowl of unmixed oatmeal, choco chips and peanut butter

I used a rough 1:1 measure for the oats and peanut butter. By this I mean 300gm of uncooked oats to 3 tablespoons of peanut butter. Then I began to mix. I found using a spoon to be quite ineffective, so I switched to hands instead. The process went MUCH faster after that.


Mixed with some water

The recipe said that if I wanted to substitute the bananas, I could add a few teaspoons of water. Which I did. Once you work the tiny addition of water into the mixture, it’s time to firm them up.

So now that they were done, it was time to toss them into the fridge. The recommendation is to leave them in there overnight, but I did just have one after they were in for about 2 hours, and it was delicious as a snack. I will probably need to make more over the weekend. This is delicious.
