Naturally sweetened by Mulberries alone‚ these easy treats are an exquisite mixture of sweet‚ citrus and a touch of spice.
1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
2 tsp Orange Zest (grated orange rind)
Soak: Cover 1 cup of the Cashews with water‚ and let soak for about an hour. Drain and discard the water.
Combine: In food processor‚ combine 2 cups of Mulberries‚ soaked Cashews‚ coconut oil‚ vanilla‚ allspice‚ orange zest and sea salt. Process until well incorporated and as smooth as possible. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Add: Mix in remaining ½ cup whole mulberries and dried coconut‚ and knead to incorporate well. Dough should be sticky enough to hold together when pressed – if too try add a touch of water‚ a tablespoon at a time. Roll and squeeze into balls.
Chop: Place the remaining cashews in the food processer‚ and process until nuts are finely chopped. Pour onto a large plate.
Roll: Roll Mulberry balls in coarse cashew powder. Will keep for about 1 week‚ refrigerated.
