I found this recipe on the internet at least 3 years ago and have been meaning to try it ever since. Well today I did and I wish I had tried it sooner. They were delicious and super easy. the best bit....no cooking required!
1 cup puffed millet or rice
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 sunflower seeds
1/2 cup rice malt or honey (we used honey)
1 cup almond meal
1 cup chopped nuts (we used roast almonds, macadamias, pistachios & cashews)
1 cup chopped dried fruit, sulphur free (we used dates and sultanas)
Place all dry ingredients in a blender and mix together. Then add tahini and rice malt (or honey)
Roll into balls and cover with coconut or sesame seeds.
Yesterday we made some candles in preparation for Easter - thanks to some inspiration from Karen over at bare feet and a free spirit.
I made up a dye bath with some red onion skins to dye the egg shells this lovely rich colour. We had intended to put the egg shells into a stocking with some leaves/ flower petals to give a pattern to the shell, however didn't get a chance...maybe next year.
We had our first fire of the year tonight.
I am sitting in front of its warmth as I type.
Hope you all had a restful weekend
