Prep time: 5 minutes Total time: 15 minutes + 1 hour to chill Yields: 20 balls

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cup ground almonds
  • 1 packet of vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1 small apple
  • 1 ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tbsp Cordyceps extract
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor (use only half of the desiccated coconut) and mix until you get smooth paste. The mixture is quite wet, but don’t worry you can form balls easily.
  2. Scoop small amounts of the mixture into your hands and roll the balls, repeat until all the mixture is gone.
  3. Now roll each ball in the remaining desiccated coconut.
  4. Place the balls in the fridge for about an hour to chill and firm up.
