Maple Nut Orbs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mielhollinger

A healthy treat requiring only a few ingredients. For chocolate orbs, add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the dough.

This was nice, but I felt that the sesame seeds overwhelmed all the other ingredients. I made the chocolate variety, and it probably needed some more maple syrup because mine turned out barely sweet. I omitted the coconut, which I'm not too fond out, and cut these into squares. I used cashew butter, but could barely taste it. I'll tweak this a tad the next time I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, bland together the nut butter and maple syrup.
  2. Add the oat bran, wheat germ, and sesame seeds and bland until it has a stiff, dough-like consistancy.
  3. You can either roll the dough into 14 indovidual orbs, and then roll them in coconut and chill, or spread the dough onto a square pan and sprinkle with coconut, chill, and cut into squares.
