Carrot, nut and dried fruit balls
3/4 cup chopped carrot
2 cups almonds
2 cups dates, cut in half to see that there were no stones.
3/4 flaked coconut
3/4 cup if dried fruit, I used a mix of Apple, Apricot and pear. The original recipe calls for dried Pineapple.
1 dessertspoon of Cinnamon powder. ( original recipe used double this amount )
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut extra to roll balls.
Place carrot into TMX bowl and cut 2 seconds/ speed 5.
Place remaining ingredients into TMX bowl, except extra coconut, and Turbo for 4 seconds 3 times.
Continue to mix on speed 7 until the mixture easily clumps when pressed in your hand. Keep mixing and testing. Don't mix until you have a paste. There should be some texture.
I used a 4 cm Ice cream scoop to form balls, then roll into coconut.
Place in container in fridge to firm up.
Can be frozen.
