A completely delicious snack, filling and full of goodness!


  • 180 g (1.5 cups) dried, pitted dates
  • 65 g (1/2 cup) raisins
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes/dessicated coconut
  • 45 g (2 tbsp) toasted sunflower seeds (just dry toast gently in a frying pan)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Gently dry toast your sunflower seeds in a pan (no oil/cooking spray) until lightly golden (2-3 minutes)
  2. Put the sunflower seeds, dates, raisins, chia seeds, coconut, orange zest and cocoa powder into a food processor and pulse until you have a fine, grainy mix (see picture above)
  3. Add in the maple syrup and then pulse again to bind everything together
  4. Roll into balls about the size of a walnut. If you wish you can roll these in a little icing sugar/sweetener/ cocoa powder so they aren’t sticky on the outside.
  5. Refrigerate for half an hour
