This makes a quick dessert or brilliant mid-afternoon snack. They're fun to make, so if you have a family, get your kids involved. Some people prefer them with dates, but prunes have a lower GI.
1 cup prunes, pitted, moistened*, and finely chopped
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup dried goji berries
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1. Combine chopped prunes, pecans, gojis, cacao, cayenne pepper and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well.
2. Shape the mixture into little balls and roll on a plate of desiccated coconut to coat them.
3. Store them in the fridge.
Tip: If you don't like pecans, replace them with your favourite nut - just make sure it's raw.
*if you can't find moistened prunes you can get dried ones and soak them for about 20 minutes until moist.
