(Makes about 30)
100g coconut oil (original version used softened butter)
3 TBSP honey
2 TBSP carob powder
1-2 cups dried fruit (3/4 cup dates plus 3/4 cup sultanas is very nice!)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (the chopped kind, but since they are being processed anyway, you could use wholegrain if you wish)
1 cup dessicated coconut, plus extra for rolling in
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
Place rolled oats in a food processor and whiz until well chopped. Tip into a bowl. Place carob, coconut oil and honey in processor and whiz until smooth. Add all other ingredients and whiz until well blended.
Take small spoonfuls of mixture, roll into balls, and roll in extra coconut. Place on a tray and refridgerate. Once firm, transfer to airtight container and keep refridgerated.
Note: the orginal version was done without a food processor, melting the first three ingredients in a pot, adding everything else plus some milk and stirring them making the balls. Do-able, but they were always very hard to get to stick together. This new version works way better - easy and tastes great!
