100gdried apple rings
50g homemade coconut sprinkles or desiccated coconut
Googly Eye Bento Picks
Place the oats into a high speed blender (I used my Vitamx, which made a very smooth mixture) then roughly chop the apple rings and dried apricots and pop in on top.
Whizz together until finely chopped, then add the raisins, maple syrup and the mixed spice.
Continue to whizz together until finely chopped and well combined. You might need to scrape the sides down a few times before the mixture comes together.
Turn the mixture out into bowl, then take walnut sized pieces of the mixture and roll it into balls. Roll each ball in the coconut sprinkles or desiccated coconut to coat then place on a small baking tray or plate.
Pop into the fridge for 15 minutes or so to set, then store in an airtight container in the fridge. Just before serving, add googly eye bento picks to turn them into fun monsters!
These energy balls should last for at least 5 days. Use gluten free oats to keep this recipe gluten free.
