1/3 cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pine kernels
½ cup walnuts
1/3 cup almonds
½ cup dried unsweetened coconut (shredded)
1 cup raisins
1 cup figs (soaked for 30-60 minutes, then dried)
1 cup dried unsweetened coconut (shredded)
1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
1. Grind the seeds, nuts, and coconut to a fine meal in a food processor.
2. With the food processor still running, add the figs and then the raisins. The mixture should form a ball. If it does not, add more raisins and a few tablespoons of water, apple juice, almond milk, or the water used to soak the dried figs. The mixture should not be wet, but instead chewy like a paste and still rough.
3. On a plate, pour about 1 cup of coconut.
4. Wet your hands a bit (not too wet) and form balls with your hands.
5. Roll the balls on the shredded coconut.
6. Place the coated balls on a plate and dust with cinnamon powder.
Nutty, fruity, chewy-moist, light snack balls coated with shredded coconut.
They are perfect as snacks but also for a late breakfast or as an addition to a fruit plate. They could be eaten right away, stored in the refrigerator for three days, or in the freezer.
