The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

My date/apple/nut balls rolled in coconut Ingredients: 3/4 cups of dried apples 3/4 cups of pitted dates (about 18) 1/2 cup of raisins (sultanas) ...1/2 cup of walnuts 1 1/2 – 2 tsp of ground cinnamon Preparation: In a food processor combine the apples, dates, raisins and cinnamon and blend for a couple of minutes until a ball is formed. Add the walnuts and blend until the walnuts are chopped to desired sized. Press firmly onto a piece of parchment paper forming a large rectangle about 1/2 inch wide. Cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Cut into desired shape Got this from a friend and thought I would give it a try Thanks Caro


  1. Oh, there's a different twist. Those look wonderful.

  2. They sure look nice. Clearly you just rolled yours into balls instead of pressing flat and cutting into shape.

  3. Hi Rina,
    Those date/apple/nut balls look pretty yummy. I've just been catching up on your blog and noticed the story about having to put your sheep out of pain. I'm so sorry and what a girl to hang on for her little one.
    Regards, Anita.
