Apricot Coconut and Lemon Raw Balls September 15 2014 by Simone Denny

I love these little raw balls of goodness, not only are they healthy but they are very tasty too. When recipe testing this oneI added the lemon as a last minute thought and it really adds a nice twist to the flavour.


  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup dried sulphur free apricots (brown in colour)
  • 1/2 cup dates chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • Grated rind of 2 lemons
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
  • ½ cup chia seeds


Blend shredded coconut, almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor until they are a coarse flour consistency. Add dates and apricots and blend until smooth.

Add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

Use a heaped dessertspoon of mixture and roll into small balls. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut and refrigerate until serving.
