Banana balls for the holidays
Around the holidays we are all busy with it again: oliebollen. A tasty snack and indispensable on the festive old and new table. Next to the apple fritters. Unfortunately, all these refreshments can not be called healthy. And allaah ... for a while away to eat a fat oliebol where your hands after an hour of sticking, that must be possible. But it gets more, which is often the case, now that we already have to pass the fresh oliebollenkampen in October, it will really be an attack on your health. I already thought about the oat bulbs . Both very healthy variants on the oliebol / apple fritter. I never fry, and therefore make everything in the oven. This saves enormously in fat.
To allow the large group of vegans to enjoy a delicious ball on New Year's Eve (or before or after), I thought of this delicious banana ball. The bulb contains no sugar, animal additives, and is baked in the oven, which makes it not greasy. Moreover, very easy to make!
You need this:
- three large semi-ripe bananas
- two tablespoons of tartar baking powder
- two tablespoons of Greensweet extra sweet
- 100 grams of linseed, whole
- 100 grams of coconut flour
- a cup of soaked raisins, well drained
This is how you make it:
Preheat the oven to 185 degrees, and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Puree in the food processor the bananas, linseed and greensweet extra sweet to a smooth mass. Grind the coconut flour and baking powder through. Hand-work round three-quarter balls of the dough, stirring the rest of the raisins. Make solid dough balls from this dough and place them well on the baking sheet.
Bake the dumplings in the middle of the oven until about 15/20 minutes, keep checking. Sprinkle icing sugar with Greensweet Icing.
