I bought a new recipe book, "Hypoglycémie: 21 jours de menus" by Alexandra Leduc, nutritionnist. Every recipe I've tried so far is pretty good.
Here is one recipe I've adapted for those of you who have a slightly sweet tooth, this is just right. You will find my adaptations below.
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup almond powder
1/2 cup Hazelnuts, finely chopped
3 tbsp of cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
Meanwhile, mix cocoa, almond powder, Hazelnuts, sugar and oat bran.
Add dry ingredients to wet ones. Mix well with hands and then make balls the size of big marshmallows. Should give between 15 to 18 balls.
But this is where I made changes. First I doubled the recipe (except sugar & only 4 tbsp of cocoa instead of 6tbsp) and made the balls smaller, they came to +/- 53 balls.
I did not add the hazelnuts in the mixture but rolled the balls in them instead as you can see below. I didn't have oat bran, but took some oatmeal and put it through the blender, it gave the same constistancy as oat bran.

Once this was done, I let them sit for +/- 1 hour and went ahead and melted some dark chocolat in a double boiler, made a mess on the stove while doing so.
|All done and ready to serve.|
|Only 49 left at this point.|
