I'm not generally one for eating or recommending
others eat dried fruits and nuts in any great amount, but sometimes, just
sometimes, a girl (or guy) has just got to have it. The following recipe was
quite literally "thrown together" when I felt I wanted something
sweet and just that little bit more "substantial". The following
recipe is what I came up with - it's a winner!
Half a cup of finely grated coconut
1 handful of macadamia nuts 2 handfuls of almonds
1 handful of dried apricots
1 handful of raisins
(See, I told you I just threw it together!)
Simply pile all of the
ingredients into a food processor and process using the "S" blade
until all ingredients fully combine. If you process long enough it will all
clump together and end up forming one large and perfectly formed ball.
Serve by either eating a teaspoon or two as desired to
satiate the sweet tooth or roll into smaller balls and keep in the fridge for
up to 5 days for freshness.
Raw Coach Top Tips:
All of the above
ingredients are optional - that is, you can swap in or out any of them with
other similar ingredients (a nut for a nut, for example), or leave out coconut
if you don't like it, and consider adding in some orange juice, mint leaves,
carob, mesquite, maca or chocolate powder for flavoured sweetballs.
