Recipes for Low Calorie Diet Balls to Tingle Your Taste Buds & Lift Your Spirits

We've made them ultra easy to prepare as they require no baking.

These tiny treats will fit perfectly into almost any diet plan. They are healthy, contain only a few calories, and best of all - they do not require any baking. They can be devoured by guys, dolls & kids alike.

Keep in mind that it's important to incorporate snacks into your diet plan to increase your odds of being successful at losing weight.

Healthy snacks are best and the closer to Mother Nature and Father Earth that the snack is, the healthier it tends to be; when the commercial refining process enters the nutritional equation, caloric and dietary fat gram values tend to spike.

Recipe Contains Minimal Ingredients, Most of Which Contain Healthy Nutritional Elements

Although our Diet Ginger Balls recipe isn't packed with substantial nutritional values, it contains a few healthy ingredients that offer notes of health.

Heart Healthy Dark Chocolate

Along this topic, using dark chocolate in this low fat recipe is a great way to fight vascular disease. It's all about moderation - and ENJOYING your diet as you lose those unhealthy pounds.

Fresh Fruit Assists in Adding Moistness to Recipes Rather Than the Harmful Fatty Acids Which Cooking Oils Contain

The use of fresh banana in this low calorie recipe helps bind the ingredients while adding a dose of nutritional value. The bananas moisten the accompanying ingredients much like vegetable oils.

Potassium Notes

And bananas are rich in potassium - and contain far less calories and fat grams per serving than cooking oils. For example, one medium banana contains 422 mg of potassium and only 105 calories. While you won't find potassium benefits in cooking oils, you will find 'fat' calories.

Low Calorie, No Bake Diet Ginger Balls Recipe

4-6 Gingersnaps (or 130 calories worth)

1/3 - 1/2 of a Ripened Mashed Banana

1 Teaspoon of Mini Chocolate Chips; remember that Dark Chocolate is health-smart.

1 Teaspoon of Powdered Sugar

How to Prepare This Recipe

Crush the gingersnaps using a food processor or by placing them in a sealed plastic bag and rolling over them with your rolling pin.

Or, you can place them in a clean black trash bag and place them in your neighbor's driveway. You'll need to stake yourself out in the bushes to collect them or a wandering varmint might steal your 'crumb loot'.

Mix the crushed snaps with the bashed banana and chocolate chips. If you do not plan to make the Ginger Balls right away, then you'll need to either mash the banana just before making them, or sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on because once the air hits them they will start to turn an unsightly brown shade.

Next, form the cookie balls from the banana mixture.

Roll the cookie balls in powdered sugar which will add some color, sweetness and flavor to the recipe. The amount of cookie balls that you end up with depends upon how big you make them.
