Method

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture becomes sticky and clumps together. Just make one batch at a time as per recipe, to go easy on your food processor. Roll (have slightly wet fingers with cold tap water to roll into balls, so mixture doesn’t stick to fingers) teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and then roll in the coconut or sesame seeds. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Makes around 24. Recipes compliments of: Sandra Perry Nutritionist 360’ Nutrition Albany Ph. 09 415 2676
