Makes 29 (16g each, limit to three balls per student)

Ingredients:

  • 150g pitted dates (ensure seeds are removed)
  • 150g dried apricots
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 15g cocoa
  • 40g desiccated coconut (plus more for rolling)
  • 1-2 tablespoons (20-40ml) boiling water

Method:

  1. Place all ingredients apart from water in food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Add water slowly until mixture just comes together (add more if it’s too dry).
  3. Use a teaspoon to scoop out portions and roll into 29 balls (weigh the first ball out to 16g so you know how big they should be).
  4. Place extra coconut in a large lunch box, drop the rolled balls in and roll to coat.
