From Martina Navratilova's book "Shape Yourself". I have not tried this yet, but they look really good. Time to make is a guess, since I haven't made it yet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, over high heat, combine the honey and milk. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Set aside.
  2. In a blender, food processor, or juicer, process the oatmeal, sesame seeds, nuts and figs until they are finely ground. Add to the honey mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Form into balls and dust with the coconut flakes.

very easy recipe. I used almond milk instead of the soy milk. This is the perfect little bite of sweetness I need in the afternoon to get me through! And healthy too!

I loved them!!! They were very easy to make. My only adjustment is to add 1/4 cup of honey as opposed to 1/3 cup. I used skim milk instead of soy, and it turned out just fine.

I had a little trouble with this recipe. I'm not assigning stars because I did use half & half instead of soy milk, though I really don't think it was the problem (but can't be sure). I did stick exactly to the ingredient amounts, and wasn't able to get the oatmeal mix very fine in my food processor. When I mixed in the liquids it was really wet, and there was no way to make balls without it going into the fridge for awhile. Then then, it was much too soft & sticky to handle, so I put the balls into the freezer. Even the next day, there were pretty soft and had a much stronger honey flavor than I would have preferred (and I like honey). I liked the idea, but think that the proportions of the ingredients might need adjustment.
