Cocoa-nut Naked Balls

You know those weeks when you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, you are feeling pretty exhausted and craving something chocolately? That’s me right now so today I created these healthy, delicious balls full of raw ingredients, goodness yet with that chocolate taste too. Inspired by the Nakd bar range, I decided it couldn’t be that hard to make my own version – turns out it isn’t!

These are gluten free (if you use gluten free oats), wheat free and easy to make if you have a food processor. I ued the nuts/seeds grinder on my Kenwood Chef. Drove my kids nuts with the noise – slighly payback for the times they drive me nuts with their noise 😉 Top tip, soak the prunes first and it will make life easier. I didn’t and had to do a lot of scraping them back down the grinder pot.

Mango and Apricot Raw Nut bars.

I’ve been meaning to play around with making these for absolutely ages. It’s been on of those things on my very long list of things to make. However babies and toddlers seem to take over slightly 😉 Today has been a fairly relaxed day and suddenly in the middle of te toddler finishing her tea and the baby getting ready for a bath I suddenly found that urge to make these. As I fired up the food processor my husband literally came out with “What on earth are you doing” – translated as “Its time to get these kids into bed so we can sit down with a glass of something yummy”. Fortunately these babies literally took minutes to make so I can enjoy one with my glass of chilled white wine. YES.

This is a recipe I’ll be playing around with over the coming weeks for sure. Let me know if you come up with any good combinations.
