Here is an old childhood favourite in a much healthier way. Probably here in England cottage cheese is not an extremely popular ingredient in recipes, but I think this is something that most people would like.
We made these balls with breadcrumbs and lots of sugar back home 20 years ago with my grandmother, but I found this creative alternative recipe and didn’t regret making them as it really reminded me of the good old times, but completely guilt-free.
Ingredients for 8 balls:
220 g cottage cheese
85 g oats
60 g erythrite
Juice and zest of half lemon
A touch of vanilla essence
3 tbsp sour cream
0.5 tsp sweet cinnamon (cassia)
Mix all ingredients together with a fork in a mixing bowl until combined and put in the fridge to rest for half an hour.
Form 8 snowball-sized cottage cheese balls with your hands and cook them in salted lightly boiling water for a few minutes. They are ready when floating on the top. If they are falling apart, you can reshape them as soon as cools down a bit.
Serve with sour cream, sweet cinnamon and fresh fruits.
