75g desiccated coconut for the coating, plus 50g for the filling

Method

Spread 75g desiccated coconut on a plate and set aside.

Place the dates, figs, almonds and 50g desiccated coconut in a food processor and blitz until combined.

Add the water and blitz to form a sticky dough. Use your hands to shape the dough into balls roughly the size of golf balls.

Then roll each ball in the desiccated coconut until coated. Your Super Snacks are ready to eat straight away.
