Dried Fruit & Nut Balls

Dried Fruit & Nut Balls

Ingredients

dried apricots (diced)

dates (chopped)

cranberries

pistachios (chopped)

walnuts (chopped)

unsweetened coconut

cocoa powder

dark chocolate

You can really use any fruit and nut combination you want. 

 

Step 1: Place all ingredients into separate small bowls.

Step 2: Add nuts to a food processor and pulse until it breaks down into a coarse mixture and gets sticky. You don’t want to process too much or it will turn into a nut butter.

Step 3: Place the dried fruit in the food processor along with the nut mixture and process until it becomes a dough. 

Tip:

If the fruit you are using is too dried, you can try pouring hot water over them first for a few minutes and then drain them before processing. You can also just add a teaspoon or two of water to the food processor so that it will come together more easily.

Step 4: Once you have the fruit and nut dough, roll them into 1- inch balls and then roll them around in the coatings. Place them on a baking sheet until you have done them all.

Step 5: Store the dried fruit bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for a week or two. Please scroll down to view and print the recipe card which has the recipes for my 4 combinations but you can really use any nut and fruit combination that you like.
