I am in love with my food processor. Got it in December and use it nearly everyday. Just like my standing mixer I never knew how much I would use it till it took place in my kitchen. Had so much fun with it and this recipe is yet another one I couldn’t do without it. If the dough gets too thick and you can’t work with it add a tablespoon of applesauce .
This is semi-no bake. By this I mean you don’t need an oven but you do need the stove. You have to cook the quinoa. Which is easy it only takes about 15 minutes. The kids loved these, I really enjoyed them too, perfect quick pick me up anytime of the day.
1 cup dried figs
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup shredded coconut, plus more for coating
2 tablespoons chopped almonds
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
In a food processor, pulse the figs and raisins into a thick paste. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add in the coconut, chopped seeds, cooked quinoa and mix together . It may be a tad sticky . Using a spoon to take tablespoons amount and roll into balls. After you finish rolling them all flatten them all and coat with extra coconut. Place in fridge for about 1 hour to set. Keep stored in the fridge.
Makes a great snack for the kids!
