If you ever feel like something delicious and healthy, then we have a great recipe from Stephanie (mein_glutenfreier_backofen) who has conjured up something great with our baobab powder and hibiscus powder:
The baobab, which is very well-known and widespread in Africa, is relatively unknown in our country. Under the name baobab we can vaguely imagine a thick-stemmed tree. In this it can store moisture and thus survive long periods of drought. Because of its many uses, it is also called the apothecary tree in Tanzania. The flesh of the baobab fruit tastes fruity-sour due to its vitamin C content. The powder dissolves easily in liquids and has many uses.
Hibiscus, as a species of the mallow family, is much more familiar to us, and may even grow in one or the other of your gardens. However, the hibiscus flower powder presented here is not obtained from the flowers, but from the ripe calyx. With its deep red color and fruity-sour taste, it makes every drink and dessert a special experience.
For about 25 pieces each:
- 1 banana
- 50 g gluten-free fine rolled oats
- 30 g ground almonds
- 10 g ground flax seeds
- 10 g organic baobab fruit powder or organic hibiscus flower powder
- To roll in: 1 tsp. ground almonds and 1 tsp. of the corresponding fruit powder
How it works:
Mash the banana with a fork to a pulp. Add all other ingredients and mix together to form a solid mass.
Form small balls with your hands. To coat, mix almonds and the appropriate fruit powder and let the balls roll in it until they are covered on all sides.
Allow the balls to infuse – preferably in the refrigerator. Enjoy and rejoice in newfound power.
The Baobab balls taste deliciously fruity and creamy.
The hibiscus balls taste quite sour. If that’s too much, add a little agave syrup to the mixture and a little more oatmeal so that the dough is not too sticky.
