Fruit & Nut BallsBy
These little fruity balls are high in fibre, very nutritious and convenient to have around for a quick snack anytime of the day. You’ll need these ingredients:
- 1/2 cup almonds, ground
- 1/2 cup coconut, grated
- 1/2 cup sultanas, chopped finely
- 1 banana, sliced finely
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cups dates, chopped finely
- 2/3 tbspns rice syrup or honey alternative
- water to moisten
You’ll have to start by processing the nuts and oats until they become a fine meal.
Then add the coconut and process to combine.
Next add the chopped dried fruits and follow with banana while your processor is still processing.
Finally add the rice syrup/honey alternative and enough water to help the mixture bind.
Scrap out small spoonfuls of mixture and shape into balls and roll in extra coconut.
(Makes approx 40 small balls)
