Who doesn’t love the occasional sweet treat to satisfy their sweet tooth? Children are notorious for loving anything that’s loaded with sugar. Usually, it means they’re reaching for a candy bar or something else that’s bound to give them a sugar rush. As a mother, wouldn’t it be nice if you could give your children something that is healthy as well as tasty? Well, we have just the thing. This recipe for Walnut & Pecan Balls has all the right ingredients. Walnuts are a superfood, packed with omega-3 fats, copper, manganese, and much more. Pecan nuts are equally nutritious and contain plenty of fiber and other essential fats. When combined, these nuts enhance the nutritional value of any meal.

For This Recipe, You Will Need:

  • 100 grams walnuts

  • 50 grams powdered sugar (Additional 100 grams to roll the balls in)

  • 20 grams butter (melted)

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder


  • In a food processer, coarsely grind the walnuts and pecan nuts.

  • Put the mixture in a bowl.

  • Add in the butter, sugar, honey, and spice powder and mix it well. Refrigerate till the mixture is firm enough to form into balls.

  • Now make balls and roll them in the powdered sugar mixture.

As you can tell, this delicious dish is easy to make. The preparation time is just under 15 minutes, and as long as you keep them refrigerated, they will last for a long time.
