2-In-1 Edible Playdough Made from Energy Balls/ Frugtstænger


Ingredients:

1. 10 (1/2 cup) dried dates pitted
2. 2 1/2 cups nuts and seeds (almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.)
3. 3 TBS cacao powder (optional)

Directions:

Using a blender, blend on high for 30 seconds to one minute until it is sticky enough to be knead into a dough by hand. If need be, repeat another cycle of 30 seconds to one minute of blending.

Additional Information:
I call it 2-in-1 recipe because it is exactly the same recipe for making edible playdough and energy balls.

I used to use flour, honey or syrup to make edible play dough, but while making energy balls, I realized that the energy ball recipe can also serve as a recipe for making edible playdough. I have made a batch today, but I am a little reluctant to let Baby FECS played with it, after making it, as she may just eat the whole amount in one go. She has a real sweet tooth... hmm... I will see how it goes tomorrow. If not, I will use it as energy balls, or use it as fruit leather for her lunch box.

You will need natural dried dates. It cost 25 DKK for a pack of 600 g at Netto or Lidl supermarket at the vegetable section.








Now it's ready to blend :-)

Blend on high for 30 seconds to one minute until it is sticky enough to be knead into a dough by hand. If need be, repeat another cycle of 30 seconds to one minute of blending.

Now it is sticky and of the right texture to form into a dough.
