Healthy Cookie Balls - Fun Food

This is a wonderfully simple snack, what you can call fun food.If you want to keep a kid engaged on a rainy day this would be the perfect activity.Little girl and I were bored sitting indoors on a warm rainy day.We were skimming through YouTube when we saw this video for cookies from Tarla Dalal. It featured some little girls making cookies and my little one wanted to try it herself too.We tweaked it a little and it did keep us busy for an hour :) Then she asked me if her favorite 'Cooker' does something like this and she would like to watch that too.Now if you're wondering who this Cooker is ,it's none other than VahChef. She actually loves watching him cook and sometimes even him prefers him to her favorite cartoon characters.Coming to the cookies,you can relate them to AR Rahman's music :) The first time you try them you'll think 'nothing special' but you'll still reach for another one.And after two or three you'll soon finding yourself loving it :)It does have some healthy ingredients and you needn't feel guilty or worry about fat while munching a few :)



You'll Need:
Whole Grain Biscuits or Digestive Biscuits - 10 -12
Peanut Butter - 1/2 cup -125 g
Flax seed powder - 1 tbsp
Almond Powder (or any nut powder ) -  2 tbsp
Condensed milk - 3 - 4 tbsp
Quick cooking oats - 1/2 cup
Chocolate chips - 2 tbsp
Desiccated coconut for rolling the cookies

Method:
-Coarsely crush the biscuits with your hand or pulse in a blender.
-In a bowl mix the crushed biscuits,Peanut butter,Flax seed powder,almond powder,flax seed powder,oats and chocolate chips.
-Add the condensed milk and mix well.Knead with your hands to form a soft dough,adding some more condensed milk if needed.
-Pinch little balls from the dough and roll them in between your palms.
-Pulse the desiccated coconut in the blender once or twice.Roll each of the balls on the coconut powder.Done !


Thanks for stopping by ! Have fun !
