- 3 cups of amaranth puffs
- 200g of dates (chopped and pitted)
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa
- 1/2 cup of tahini
- 50g of sunflower seeds
- 100g of dried apricots (chopped)
- 100g of sultanas
- 100g of walnuts (chopped)
- 1 cup of dried coconut flakes
Put the dates in a large bowl and cover them with boiling water. Leave this to soak for 30 minutes.
Strain the water off the dates into a separate bowl and mash them slightly. (Don’t throw the date water away, as you may need it if the mixture becomes too dry to work with). Add the tahini, cocoa, fruit, nuts and seeds to the dates and mix.
Pour this over the amaranth puffs. Mix well and then roll handfuls of the mixture into balls, compacting them together. Finally, roll each ball in the dried coconut flakes and refrigerate.
