  • 200 g pumpkin or butternut squash puree
  • 200 g dried apricots roughly chopped
  • 100 g oats
  • 100 g chopped nuts or seeds - I like almonds
  • pinch salt optional


  • Place all the ingredients into your food processor and pulse until combined. You may need to scrape the sides down once or twice.
  • If you want your oats to be really broken down pulse them first.
  • Lightly oil your hands (not essential but stops the mixture sticking) and roll into balls.
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to five days.
