apricot & incan berry balls
these are so easy to make and so delicious. the little incan berries provide the 'zing' in these sweets. they are great for when you need a snack on the go. I like to keep mine in the fridge and they last for ages.
3/4 cup of unsulphered dried apricots
1/2 cup of raw white almond butter
1/2 cup of raw dried coconut flakes
1/4 cup of dried incan berries
1 tbsp of maca (optional)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
place everything except the coconut flakes in your blender and blend until mixture looks like a mass of soft breadcrumbs. roll into balls. makes about 12 but depends on the size.
they are great eaten like this but I love to roll them in some finely ground raw coconut flakes. I use a coffee grinder to do this. dusting them in the coconut just finishes them off nicely adding a professional touch - good if you want to give them away as a gift.
it's easy to double up this recipe.
for info:- the general rule for making these sorts of sweets is 2 cups dried fruit to 1 cup of nuts/seeds or nut butter.
i hope you love this recipe.
