Gluten free, egg free and dairy free treats that have had my boys trying to guess the secret crunchy ingredient for ages! Got to love dried figs!
Ideal for school lunch boxes with no hidden nasties and really quick to whizz up when you are in a rush.
Makes 18-20 balls.
200g dried apple rings
100g dried figs
75g Brazil nuts
1 tablespoon coconut oil
25g ground almonds/almond meal
In a food processor, process the apples and nuts until they form a rough crumb.
Add the figs and coconut oil and process until the mix is all in small crumbs.
Tip into a bowl and form into 18-20 balls, roll in the ground almonds and keep in the fridge.
Continuing on the bliss ball theme………. I give you choc mint bliss balls!
Choc mint ice cream is one of my boys favourites so it made sense to have a go at a choc mint ball!
For all of my baking I use a Dutch cocoa it has a stronger flavour and darker colour and the pistachios as for a minty green “chip”, cashews work just as well!
Makes 22-24 balls.
350g dates, stoned
2 tablespoons coconut oil
75g raw, shelled pistachio nuts
50g ground almonds
2 tablespoons cocoa podwer
1 teaspoon peppermint essence
Check the dates are properly stoned before you do anything, I have been caught out by a stray stone before!
Process the dates and coconut oil until the dates are chopped into smaller pieces.
Add the pistachio nuts, almond meal and peppermint essence and process, using the pulse button, until the mix begins to come together.
Scoop out and roll into small balls.
Keep in the fridge.
