My mum and I make these raw fruit balls all the time and they are absolutely delicious. We use raw almonds, cashews and macadamias as our nutty blend. But you could use any nuts that tickle your festive fancy. Just know that each nut mix will yield a treat of a different personality.

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • a couple of drops – 1/8 teaspoon of natural almond essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Preparation:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Mix the coconut and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside for rolling.
  2. Put all other ingredients in a food processor, and slowly add in the orange juice if it doesn’t bind together completely.
  3. Roll into small balls and coat with the coconut mixture.
  4. Store in a sealed glass container in the fridge.

Tip

They make great snacks in school or work lunch boxes; great power snacks for a long work out; or a great little bite to put beside a cup of herbal tea. These will last in a sealed glass container in the fridge for weeks.

These are fantastic!!! I make them all the time and they are loved by the whole family, I generally leave out the orange juice and almond essence, and use cinnamon in, as well as on them. - 14 May 2012

yum, I made these for a kids christmas party due to many allergies in the group - slight difference in ingredients I used ground almonds to start and added glace cherries - the kids loved them. - 04 Dec 2011
