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.
