These little gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free bites of heaven are a great addition to the school lunchbox. The recipe was given to me by chef Louise Miller who works as a freelance chef in SE Queensland and northern NSW.

  • Prep Time : 25-30 minutes
  • Yield : 12 -14



 Makes 12 - 14 balls

Place all ingredients in a food processor, and process for 1-2 minutes, until mixture combines and starts to stick together.  You might need to add 1 - 2 tablespoons warm water (or freshly squeezed orange juice) to bring it together.
Roll about 1 tablespoon of mixture into balls and place in little patty cake papers, or roll in desiccated coconut.
Refrigerate until firm. You can keep these in the fridge for 2-3 days or they keep well in the freezer for a few months.

Lou’s NotesThe mesquite powder is ground from mesquite seed pods, rich in protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron. It has a slight caramel flavour and is great for balancing blood sugar levels. Mesquite powder can be hard to find, but they will still taste great without it.

My note: roll the balls in desiccated coconut for a pretty effect.  You could also add some chia seeds to the mix.
For a special gift Louise suggests you layer the dry ingredients in a jar, decorate with a ribbon and attach a copy of the recipe, highlighting the additional ingredients they will need.
