Other Ingredients

  • Zest of 1 Medium Lemon [1½tsp of Lemon Zest]
  • Juice of 1 Medium Lemon [3tsp of Lemon Juice]


    1. Add the apricots, Medjool dates (stones removed!) and ground almonds into a blender or powerful smoothie maker, with the grinding blade attached (this is usually the one with a straight-ish blade, but check your individual machine and its instructions). Grind into a rough paste.
    2. Transfer this paste into a large mixing bowl. Then add the milled tiger nuts, lemon zest, lemon juice, nut butter, chia seeds and green aniseed.
    3. Combine all the ingredients together with the back of a fork.
    4. Bring the mixture together into a dough ball. If you wish you can store the mixture in the fridge overnight or until you are ready to make your bites.
    5. When you are ready to make the 'bites', cover a wooden chopping with cling film and roll out the mix to your chosen thickness. These ingredients make around 380g of mix.
    6. Cut out your chosen shapes (we used and upside-down shot glass to cut out ours) and store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat. Alternatively make into small, bite size balls.
    7. The bites or balls can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
