My boys love these and I have to admit so do i. They are a great snack, easy to make, adaptable to what you have in the cupboard and are perfect to take on a day out. They travel well and are easy to eat without to much mess. Usually the consumption of one is followed by a request for another. Would love to hear of any other flavour combinations to try?

3 tbspns carob powder
1 tbspn cacao nibs
zest of one orange
juice of 1/2 small orange
Place all the ingredients except the orange juice into a food processor or vitamix.
Process until the mixture resembles big breadcrumbs
Whilst processing gradually add the orange juice until the mixture comes together and firms up.

Using a tablespoon take a heaped portion of the mixture and roll into a ball
Repeat with the remaining mixture
Place in the fridge to firm up (if you can wait that long)
Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, Australia and am spoilt by year round access to Farmers Markets offering a plethora of local, seasonal and organic produce. In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
