Gillian’s Snack Balls


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 8-10 large dried figs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup pitted prunes, halved
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 6 large medjool dates, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons fresh grated orange peel
  • tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


Place the figs, prunes, cranberries, dates, oats, applesauce, orange peel and honey in a food processor and process for about one minute or until the ingredients are well combined and form a soft pasty ball. Use a spoon to take enough paste to form one-inch balls. Roll the balls in coconut. Makes about 4 dozen.
