I don't much like cashews plain, but have discovered that they go very nicely in fruit and nut balls like these. This pear version follows my earlier papaya and cashew balls, and pineapple and cashew balls. Pear isn't as strong in flavour as papaya or pineapple, but it matches the cashews nicely all the same.
Pear and cashew balls
Raw and vegan
You will need a food processor for this recipe
Makes about 20 small balls
1 cup dried pear pieces (about 150g)
1/2 cup raw cashews (about 75g)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Scant 1/4 cup dessicated coconut (about 15g)
Roughly chop the dried pear, and then add to a food processor together with the cashews, vanilla and coconut. Process until finely ground and the mixture clumps together.
Roll into small balls and set in the fridge for about an hour. Best served cold.
There are a few other organisational changes in the works too, designed to streamline finding information, but I will update on those when they are finalised. If the blog disappears at random, you will know that my efforts backfired and I organised things into oblivion!
I'm submitting these snack balls to Ricki's Wellness Weekend 3rd - 7th January 2013,
and to Heather's new link up event of Raw Foods Thursday, 3rd January 2013,
Tell me - cashews, yes or no?
And if you work, when do you head back?
