California Walnut Power Balls

Makes 12

Ingredients

  • 75g California Walnut Pieces
  • 100g dried apricots
  • 100g dried figs, halved
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds (20g)

Method

  1. Place 25g walnuts in a food processor and blitz until chopped. Transfer to a large plate and set aside.
  2. Place the remaining walnuts in the food processor with the apricots, figs and the seeds and blitz to give a coarse paste.
  3. With damp hands, divide the mixture into 12 and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the reserved chopped walnuts and serve.

 

Top Ti:p Make these up and store in an airtight container and they will keep for 4-5 days, great as a snack for the gym or in lunch boxes. Try swapping the apricots with dates or prunes.

Walnuts are the only nut to contain significant amounts of the plant-based essential omega-3 ALA (2.5g/30g). A handful of walnuts (30g) offers 2.5g of plant-based essential omega-3 ALA, 2g of fibre, 4.6g of protein and ‘good’ polyunsaturated fats.
