Chocolate Energy Balls

PREPARATION:

Blend the prunes, apricots, almonds and walnuts in the food processor until they form a paste. Add the vanilla, Hermesetas Granulated, oats, coconut, cocoa and orange zest & juice and blend again to form a thick, sticky paste. Don’t over blend, the mixture should be quite coarse. Roll the mixture into a sausage shape and cut into 16 pieces, then roll each piece into a ball If you wish, roll 4 balls in cocoa powder, 4 in coconut and 4 in orange zest (optional). Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
