Today my dear friend E-Cutie emailed me this:

“Hey you!  When are you going to update your blog????  I’m anxiously awaiting an update;))))) ”
 
This email from E-Cutie made me so happy. Someone is actually following my blog, and on top of that they are really interested in the recipes. WOOT WOOT, sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!

I’m making bread, so I’m wrapped up in that right now along with a few other things around the house. To make E-Cutie happy I thought I should whip up something ASAP and post it…

Ingredients
Makes 9 large balls
– 1 cup of dried figs (rinsed and drained)
– 1 cup of raw walnuts
– 1/4 cup of raw almonds
– 1/4 cup of raisins
– 4 plump dates
– 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
– 2 teaspoons of carob powder
– pinch-o-sea salt

Directions
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until mixture turns into a sticky paste.
Roll into balls.
*Optional: Roll balls in shredded unsweetened coconut.

Place them in the fridge for 2 hours to firm up or in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
You can of course eat them immediately – they will be soft.

*Note: These store well in the freezer, but will also keep in the fridge for a few days.
