Step 1

Combine apricots, figs, goji berries, wheatgerm, milk powder and coconut in a food processor. Process on high for 2 minutes until the dried fruit is finely crushed.

Add orange juice and process on low for 3 to 5 minutes until mixture is well combined and looks like a stiff dough ball.

Roll mixture into little balls the size of large grapes in the palm of your hands. Scatter extra desiccated coconut in a shallow plate and roll the balls in it to coat evenly with the coconut.

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for a healthy snack.
