NUT-FREE COCONUTTY BALLS
Author: Shan Cooper Date Posted:25 April 2014
These are no-nut balls. Yep, I just said that. Sometimes you just need to not have nuts in your life, other days you just need nuts. Today was a nut-free day. You can substitute the coconut butter for a nut butter of your choice if you are feeling a little less coconutty & a bit more plain nutty. Either way, the result is delicious.
200g sunflower seeds, lightly toasted (or nut of your choice)
150g Coconut Butter
Zest & juice of 1 orange
50g Goji Berries (optional)
1 tbs Maca or Lucuma powder (optional)
2-3 tbs Raw Cacao
In your food processor blend the sunflower seeds until they start to form a paste. Add the coconut butter & orange zest & juice, lucuma/maca & blend until smooth. Add the goji berries & pulse a few times just to combine. Now I made 3 different types of balls, you can choose one or make them all too. Some I just used the batter as it is now, rolled balls & that’s it. Others I rolled the same batter into balls then rolled the balls in raw cacao to coat at the end. The last lot I added a couple of tbs of raw cacao to the food processor, gave it a bit of a blend, then rolled that chocolatey goodness into balls.
