Dry Fruit Balls are very easy to prepare and are very delicious as well! Dates and figs are considered to be one of the best treatments for anemia. They are also fibrous foods which help with digestion. I already explained about the health benefits of walnuts and almonds in my earlier posts. They are considered to be Brain Foods. So I wanna combine all these benefits into one sweet and healthy snack. So try this healthy and yummy snack and share your comments!

Dry Fruit Balls

The health benefits of dry fruit are well known. So most moms try to feed their kids at least a little once in a while. Most of the kids refuse to eat dry fruits as it is, but if you give this sweet balls they won’t reject them. You can also serve this healthy snack to your guests instead of all that store-bought snacks.

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making perfect dry fruit balls. Firstly, Toast the nuts in microwave on high for about 1 to 2 mins until nice aroma comes or in the oven (180 degrees C) for about 8 to 10 mins or until fragrant.

Finally, if you don’t have the almond powder, then blanch 30g of almonds then remove the skin. And dry completely and then powder it in the blender or in the mixie until coarsely. Dry the almonds completely before processing otherwise the water will make it into butter.
