ABC Marbles? What the heck are those? Well, they’re these…
I couldn’t decided what to call my newest dessert balls, so I asked for suggestions on Facebook. Someone suggested ABC Swirl, and while I loved the idea of ABC, the swirl didn’t quite fit, so I went with marble. My original idea was Almond Butter Carob Marble Balls. Ha! Apparently my kitchen inspiration has been just slightly better than my recipe naming inspiration 😉
1/2 c + 2 TBSP almond butter
1/4 c carob
2 TBSP maple syrup
Combine 1/2 c almond butter, carob powder and maple syrup in a ball until thick batter forms. Add the two tablespoons of almond butter to the mix and smash in to combine. Roll into balls and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
Nut butter: You can use any nut or seed butter – almond, peanut, cashew, sunflower, etc.
Carob: You can easily swap the carob out for raw cacao or coco powder. The carob powder I’ve been using is by Bob’s Red Mill, and it’s super sweet. It’s much sweeter than the Chatfield’s brand.
Maple Syrup: You could easily use another liquid sweetener – even date paste.
