Trail Mix Balls
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
Coconut flakes or whole sunflower seeds for rolling
These measurements are just a start, if you want more just add more. The consistency can be whatever you like in amounts just know that you will need more raisins for sure for the "glue".
1. Pulse the sunflower seeds in the food processor until they are coarsely chopped.
2. Add the dried fruit. Blend until everything is thoroughly mixed, and roll the resulting dough into balls.
3. Roll the balls in coconut or whole sunflower seeds.
( I ground up my coconut flakes and just added them into the mixture. Also, if you find you need the balls to stick better, I used some Wildflower/Black honey into the mix to get it stickier)
