Oasis Orbs

Recipe by Dancer
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 24 orbs.




  • Place 1/4 cup of the coconut on a plate and set aside.
  • Place the rolled oats in a heavy bottomed skillet and toast for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
  • When they begin to turn a darker shade of tan at the edges and emit a toasted aroma, transfer the oats to the bowl of a food processor.
  • Process on high to pulverize them to a fine meal consistency.
  • Add the remained 1/4 cup coconut and the dates and process to finely chop them, then add the almond butter, sesame seeds, and orange peel.
  • Add the orange juice and process until things come together to form a homogeneous mass.
  • Add a bit more orange juice, if needed, to get the right thickness and well blended consistency.
  • Don't add too much juice; you want the mixture to be fairly dry, not moist and mushy.
  • Use your hands to form the mixture into balls about 1 1/2-inch in diameter, then roll the balls in the reserved shredded coconut.
  • Place on a plate and chill for an hour or so before serving.
  • They're also good, though a bit gooey, when eaten at room temperature.
