Now fall has made its entrance and the weather is getting less nice, it’s time for some sweet baking sessions again girlies! Don’t you just love that smell of homemade goods while you enjoy being cozy at home? Today’s recipe blog post is a special edition as it involves yummy banana quark balls from a fellow foodie!
A recipe from a fellow foodie, who could it be? Well these ultimate banana quark balls are from the lovely Mariette from Zoetrecepten! This is actually a recipe from her new book Puur Zoet, so you’re getting a sneak peek, how awesome is that?! Her book contains easy sweet baking recipes in a healthy way. All the recipes contain nutritious ingredients that you can find simply at your local supermarket. Plus it has lots of gluten and lactose free options so it’s fitted for anyone who needs this. And yes, this recipe gives a lactose free option as well!
These banana quark balls kind of remind me of oliebollen which are the guilty pleasure of most Dutchies during winter time. Though only from the outside, because these balls are way different when it comes to the inside.
Nothing but good stuff is in here so its happy body proof and totally within Foodie-ness vibes 🙂
It’s a real easy and fast recipe, so don’t wait any longer and start baking!
