Orange, date, coconut, seed and honey balls

17 Jul

As a busy mum, I am always hunting for quick, easy and non baking recipes. No-baking bites are in the trend at the moment. Recently I am intrigued by one of Naida Lim’s recipes – orange, date, coconut, seed and honey balls. It is flavoursome, healthy and easy to make! I coated them with cocoa powder this time. Next time I will try different coating. What should I say? Try the recipe, try it and try it! 🙂

Orange, date, coconut, seed and honey balls

(Makes 12)

  • ⅔ cup Almonds, raw
  • ⅔ cup Dates, pitted
  • 4 Tbsp Pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 2 Tbsp Sunflower seeds, toasted
  • ½ cup Shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup Sesame seeds, toasted
  • 4 Tbsp Macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Oranges, zested and juiced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa powder to dust, or finely chopped pistachio nuts, sesame seeds or coconut
  1. Place all ingredients except cocoa powder (or other coating of choice) in a food processor and blend until a chunky paste forms.
  2. Roll into small balls, about 3cm in diameter.
  3. Roll in cocoa, pistachios, sesame seeds or coconut if desired.
  4. Store in an airtight container. They will keep for several days.
