Method

Roll Ins

Use any of the following ingredients as “roll ins” for your balls. Use multiple if you wish to give you an excellent variety.

  • Dried coconut, blitzed in a food processor so it becomes desiccated.
  • Freeze dried strawberries, crushed
  • Goji Berries, blitzed in a food processor to make a crumb
  • Crushed walnuts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Cacao powder, (if you like bitter)
  • Almonds, blitzed in a food processor to make a crumb
  • Oats, blitzed in a food processor with a drop or two of vanilla to make a crumb

Instructions

  1. Place cashews, coconut butter and vanilla into a high speed food processor. Process on high for 30 – 40 seconds.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except the “roll ins” ingredients. Process on high until everything is well combined, and forms a soft “dough”, approximately 60 seconds.
  3. Taking a tablespoon of mixture at a time, roll in to balls. (You may want to wet your hands slightly as the mixture can be quite sticky).
  4. Once all mixture has been rolled in to balls, lay out the roll ins of choice one at a time on to a plate.
  5. Roll the choco raspberry balls (one ball at a time) into a “roll in” until evenly covered. Continue and repeat so all balls are covered using the different roll ins of choice.
  6. Place in fridge to harden for at least an hour.
