Fruit and Nut Balls

Fruit and Nut Balls

These can be adapted a fair bit. The measurements below are VERY rough.

2 handfuls of dates
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup hazelnut meal
2 tbsp carob powder
6 or 7 dried apricots
handful of pepitas
vanilla essence
desiccated coconut
cinnamon

Chop dates finely, put in a bowl and just cover with boiling water. Add a little cinnamon and leave to soak for 20 min. Drain off any unabsorbed water (shouldn’t be any) and mash dates with a fork. Chop apricots and pepitas finely, add everything except coconut to the dates and mix. Should make a thick paste. Form into balls and roll in coconut. Place in fridge overnight.
