Sweet Potato Balls

Sweet Potato Balls

Every now and then I love rainy days like today.
It's cozy and warm inside and our kitchen turns into a playground for everyone.

The kids enjoy their holidays and play together and I can deal with all my experiments in the kitchen.

I want to share one of our creations of this morning with you.
These small sweet potato bites are so quickly made and include only 3 ingredients.

Since our children don't eat in kindergarten or school; but bring their own food, I'm always looking for snacks, which can easily be stored in their lunch box.

These little sweet potato bites are perfectly suited as a take-away.

Sesame is an excellent source of protein.

It also contains much more calcium than milk.
On a spoon with 10 g of sesame are 78mg calcium - compared to milk with just 12mg.

Actually, there should even be a separate article on this kind of superfood, but at another time.
Today I want to share this recipe with you first.


Stay healthy and make it a cozy rainy day.
