Ingredients

1/2 cup cashew nuts

3/4 cup almonds

1 cup dried apricots

10 medium sized dates

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1/3 cup desiccated coconut, plus a little more for coating

zest of 1 lime

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Method

1: Combine all ingredients in a high speed food processor.  If food processor is not very powerful, give the nuts a head start by blending them for a bit on their own before adding other ingredients.

2: If the mixture isn’t coming together, gradually add a small amount of water. The dried apricots make everything really sticky so you make have to do quite a bit of scraping down the sides of your bowl.3

3: Once you have a sticky batter consistency, stop mixing.  If you’ve overdone it with the water and it’s too sticky, you can add a little extra coconut to stiffen it up, or place in the fridge for 10 mins.

4: Sprinkle some desiccated coconut onto a small plate.

5: Scoop out dollops with a spoon and roll into balls with your hands.

6: Next, roll the balls into the coconut to coat the outside and place onto a tray or plate coated with grease-proof paper.

7: Store in the fridge or freezer.
