Use organic ingredients whenever possible.

  • Author: Kali Nandi


1 cup chopped dried apricots

1 cup sultanas

1 cup fresh orange juice

1 Tbsp coarsely grated orange rind, preferably organic

1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

3/4 cup chopped raw pecans or walnuts

1/2 cup shredded coconut


Combine apricots, raisins, juice and orange rind in a small bowl.

Cover and let stand for 1 hour — or even up to 1 day.

In a food processor or blender, chop the mixture finely. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of coconut and pecans or walnuts.

Scoop 1 Tbsp of the mixture, rolling into balls. Roll in remaining coconut.

Let stand on parchment paper to dry for 8 hours or overnight.

(they will stay fresh for up to 10 days in an airtight container)
