    • 75g flaked almonds

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a food processor combine raisins and walnuts. Process until they form a sticky ball.
    2. Coat hands with oil and roll mixture into balls the size of large marbles, then coat with almonds.
    3. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.


    Use practically any combination of dried fruits and nuts here - apricots and dates would work nicely. Add some flax seed for added fibre.

    To make this a really raw recipe, substitute extra virgin expeller or cold presses coconut oil. It is heart healthy and much better for your body than vegetable oil.  -  18 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made it the first time and it was so good I made it again the next day. Be careful not to blend too too much (as I did the second day) or it tends to get a little oily. It actually tastes better when you can taste little tiny pieces of the walnut and the raisins (as opposed to overblended). As a matter of fact, I found I didn't need to coat my hands with oil at all, the walnuts provided enough oil to roll it up. I didn't use any almonds or other coating and I thought they were still so tasty. Also, good source of omega-3 oils and fiber!  -  10 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Cutting out sugar/candy entirely this month. This one was great because it still tasted sweet and was also creamy. I added some dried blueberries and strawberries to the raisin mixture. As good as it gets to super healthy "candy". Oh, and this one does taste better the next day cold from the fridge. Thanks!  -  03 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
