Dr. Nandi’s Coconut Apricot Balls
Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
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)
