Makes: 30 balls


100g almonds
100g walnuts
100g pistachio nuts
50g rolled oats
2/3 cup (100g) dried apricots, chopped
8 fresh dates, pitted
½ cup (200g) pitted prunes, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons cacao (or cocoa powder)
1 cup (90g) desiccated coconut
To coat, extra cacao and coconut


1) Dry roast the almonds, walnuts and pistachio nuts in the oven or on the stove, until lightly toasted and fragrant. Place in a food processor and whiz until finely chopped.

2) Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor, and whiz for two to three minutes. Test the mixture by squeezing a small amount in your hand – if it doesn’t stick together, you may need to add a tablespoon of warm water and whiz again.

3) Roll into tablespoon-sized balls, then roll in cacao or coconut. Keep in the fridge for up to two weeks
