Healthy-Hearty Breakfast Balls!...Vegan Blueberry-Peach Breakfast Power Balls!

Toss those donut holes out the freakin window....There are so many other options, such as these power balls!

Make in the evening, enjoy first thing in the morning!  This recipe yields 16 powerballs and you are bound to win every time!

I found an amazing deal on blueberries today ($1/pint).  This seemed like a perfect ingredient to accompany the abundance of rolled oats in my plantry.  And heck, why not throw in a super ripe peach to create a tasty breakfast bite to start things right?

At first I was thinking about making these into bars, but it made more sense to roll them into golf sized balls.  You only need two of them to be satisfied in the morning!

Vegan Blueberry-Peach Breakfast Power Balls

If you would like a reference to what these tastes like, Ryan and I both came to the consensus that they resembled a super healthy blueberry muffin.

Filling Ingredients/Direction:
1/2 pint blueberries
1-2 ripe peaches chopped
1/4 c agave nectar
1/4 c apple juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp water

In sauce pan, throw in fruit, agave nectar and apple juice.  Bring to boil and add in remaining ingredients.  Stir until fruit becomes macerated (see 1st picture).  Set aside

Oat Ingredients/Directions
preheat oven 375

3 c oats
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
dash salt
dash cinnamon
1 banana (mashed)
1/4 c agave nectar
1/4 c water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coconut extract (optional)

In blender or food processor, grind 1.5 c oats until fine.  Add in with the rest of the oats, baking powder, salt and cinnamin.  In seperate bowl combine wet ingredients.  Add wet and dry until mixed thoroughly.

Now combine the filling with the oat mixture.  Form into about one inch balls until all your mixture is gone.  Place on backing sheet or oven safe dish and bake for about 30 minutes.  Let cool.

Great to make in the afternoon/evening and enjoy the next morning or take with you for a snack!
