Christmas Balls

(makes 16-24 snack size balls )

Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 cups cashew pieces
  • 
1 1⁄2 cups dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 
1⁄2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 
Zest of one orange
  • 
1⁄2 tsp ginger powder
  • 
1⁄2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 
Pinch of sea salt
  • Little bit of water or orange juice
  • Chia seeds

Put the cashews into the food processor and process until they are as fine as you like – I leave them a little bit chunky. Put the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and process for 30 seconds to one minute until mixture can be pressed into a ball. If necessary, add some water or orange juice to help mixture combine but only add a little at a time.

Once it makes a big ball in your processor you can remove and form into little balls. You can leave plain or roll each ball in chia seeds then leave to firm up in the fridge for an hour or more before eating.
