By Lucy Burton, Pudding Lane Blog

  • 225g Nature’s Finest Prunes, drained
  • 75g almonds
  • 1 medium banana, ripe
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 75g oats
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C / 150°C fan, and line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Place the almonds in a food processor. Blitz until they are fine powder with a sandy texture. Do not over blitz, or they will become oily and form a paste. Set the almonds aside.
  3. Place 175g of the drained and dried prunes in the food processor with the banana and almond butter. Blitz until well combined and smooth.
  4. Add the ground almonds, oats and salt, and blitz to combine. Taste, and add a little maple syrup to taste.
  5. Use your hands to roll the mixture into walnut sized balls. Place on the baking tray. Slice the remaining 50g of dried prunes into quarters, then top each ball with a piece.
  6. Baking in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the balls have browned and are firm to the touch.
