1 Cup of Almond Meal
1 Cup of Pitted Dates
4 Pitted Prunes
1 Tablespoon of Sesame Seeds
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/3 Cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
1/3 Teaspoon of orange zest
2/3 Cup of Dessicated Coconut
Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
Makes: 16 balls
Place all dry ingredients in the food processor to combine well. Add the orange juice and zest and continue to process for a further 1-2 minutes. The mixture should resemble a paste.
With wet hands take a small amount of the mixture and roll it between your palms into a ball shape. Repeat this process until you have made all the balls.
These are a great treat when I want to have something sweet with a cup of tea or coffee. You will notice that they are not super sweet as I have not added any extra sugar. The sweetness is there from the dates and prunes. If you prefer them a little sweeter, feel free to add a little sugar.
