With the school holidays upon us again, I thought I would post this simple recipe for nut-free Weetbix Sultana Balls. These are a great portable snack, perfect for car trips or days when you are out and about. There are a few versions of these Weetbix Sultana Balls floating around the internet and I have taken bits and bobs from different recipes to create my own version which my kids love (and actually, so do I!!)
Weetbix Sultana Balls
1/2 cup sultanas
3 tbsp. coconut plus, coconut for coating
2 tbsp. cocoa
2 tbsp. honey
2 – 3 tbsp. condensed milk
Combine the weetbix, sultanas, coconut and cocoa in a food processor and process until the weetbix and sultanas and finely chopped. Add the honey and condensed milk and process until the mixture comes together.
Take 2 tsp’s of mixture and use damp hands to roll into a ball. Roll them in coconut and transfer to a container. Repeat until all the mixture is rolled into balls. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 7 days (if they last that long!).
I tested this recipe with coconut oil instead of condensed milk. It didn’t work for me as the mixture did not come together enough to roll into balls. The condensed milk really acts as the ‘glue’ that holds it all together. If you buy a tin of condensed milk, you will have a lot leftover. I freeze my condensed milk in 3 tablespoon batches and use it the next time I make this recipe!
