Inspired by one of my favourite ready made raw snack-bars these energy balls are a little less sweet and with an edgy hint of lime.

Made of
Sunflower seeds & Almonds (50/50)
Soft or soaked dried dates & apricots (about 2/3 dates & 1/3 apricots)
Lime peel & lime juice
Coconut oil & Coconut flakes

Mix the almonds and sunflower seeds in a mixer, about the same amount of both. You don't have to mix them flour-or butter smooth; leave some texture. Add a little bit of cold pressed coconut oil and the peel of one lime.

Put in the fruit bit by bit until the crumble somewhat sticks together when you form a ball. In other words you don't want it to be too compact and chunky.

Squeeze some lime juice in so that the crumble easily can be rolled into balls. (If you feel the mixture got too wet you can add some coconut flakes to suck up the extra moisture).

Roll the balls in coconut flakes -or cut into squares/bars and sprinkle coconut on top.
Store cool in an air-tight jar.

 Dag likes his. Well actually he snatched one while I was still taking pictures.  ("Cake" he says.)

 Or two actually, one for each hand, so that he would not miss out.

And there's just enough left for me still.

Anonymous : that depends on how much you want to make :) I'd have to re-make them before I could give any exact measurements; I hardly use such just go by texture. But in this case I think I used a bag of almonds which is 100g so then I had about that amount of both, and had a handful of dried fruit!

Holy mamma mia! There was something so fascinating with these pics and your recipe. That ended to a workshop for mummy and a 12-yrs-old teenager last night and now... our mornings are saved! Thank you for the inspiration, thank you for the recipe. Like my son said: "How can something so healthy taste sooooo good?"
