Nut-Free Coconutty Balls

These are no-nut balls. Yep, I just said that. Sometimes you just need to not have nuts in your life, other days you just need nuts. Today was a nut-free day AND I have Coconut Butter from Honest to Goodness to create with before the GIVEAWAY. If you want to be the lucky recipient of a jar your can get all the details HERE. I am going to give away one jar this week, one next week & a few more on the 14th August. Get posting & sharing the MFR love!

200g sunflower seeds, lightly toasted (or nut of your choice)
150g Coconut Butter
Zest & juice of 1 orange
50g Goji Berries (optional)
1 tbs Maca or Lucuma powder (optional)
2-3 tbs Raw Cacao

In your food processor blend the sunflower seeds until they start to form a paste. Add the coconut butter & orange zest & juice, lucuma/maca & blend until smooth. Add the goji berries & pulse a few times just to combine. Now I made 3 different types of balls, you can choose one or make them all too. Some I just used the batter as it is now, rolled balls & that’s it. Others I rolled the same batter into balls then rolled the balls in raw cacao to coat at the end. The last lot I added a couple of tbs of raw cacao to the food processor, gave it a bit of a blend, then rolled that chocolatey goodness into balls.

  3. Pigeon post it is friend, though I fear the pigeon may consume them, they are sneaky b@stards.

    Hi, these look awesome! Could you use coconut oil instead if butter?

  5. Ali, you could but the texture would be different. I’d use a nut butter instead if you don’t have coconut butter
