Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 10

Ingredients

  • 150 g South African raisins
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 50 g whole almonds
  • 4 tbsp crunchy or smooth almond or peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 30 g mixed seeds (e.g. linseed, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, chia)

Instructions

  1. Put 100g of the raisins into a blender or mini processor and blitz until very finely chopped. Tip these into a bowl and add the remaining raisins and ground almonds.

  2. Blitz the whole almonds in the blender or food processor until finely chopped. Add to the raisin mixture with the almond or peanut butter and maple syrup. Mix together thoroughly with a fork (or use your hands), then shape and roll the mixture into 10 balls.

  3. Put the seeds into a frying pan and dry roast over a medium heat for about 1 minute, shaking the pan often. Tip into a bowl and leave until cooled. Roll the balls in this seed mixture. Keep in a sealed box or bag in the refrigerator and use within a week.

  4. TIP: You could use honey or agave syrup instead of maple syrup. Just use one type of seed if you like – such as sesame or chia.
