About this recipe: Sweet treats with no added sugar - raw, unfired fare that is all natural and vegan!
Use practically any combination of dried fruits and nuts here - apricots and dates would work nicely. Add some flax seed for added fibre.
I did this recipe but used a slightly different method. I found that rolling the balls with oil on my hands didn't really work as soon as i put them into the almonds they just crumbled. So i put the almonds into the mixture, and then squashed them into balls so the almonds where throughout the mixture and not just on the outside. They refridgerate well however they are abit of a nightmare to eat, crumble when you bite into them. A good quick energy treat for just before the gym! - 29 May 2009
To make this a really raw recipe, substitute extra virgin expeller or cold presses coconut oil. It is heart healthy and much better for your body than vegetable oil. - 18 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made it the first time and it was so good I made it again the next day. Be careful not to blend too too much (as I did the second day) or it tends to get a little oily. It actually tastes better when you can taste little tiny pieces of the walnut and the raisins (as opposed to overblended). As a matter of fact, I found I didn't need to coat my hands with oil at all, the walnuts provided enough oil to roll it up. I didn't use any almonds or other coating and I thought they were still so tasty. Also, good source of omega-3 oils and fiber! - 10 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
