My next new recipe is also from a coworker’s lunch and learn recipe, like my previous post of split pea soup.
This recipe comes together quickly. I blended the following ingredients in my food processor into a paste consistency:
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup orange juice
2 Tablespoons almond extract
Then I put the following dry ingredients in a bowl:
1 cup brown sugar
5 1/2 oz. cocoa
2 cups almond meal/ flour
Next, I combined the ingredients and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes.
I used a cookie scoop to form the mixture into balls and rolled in powdered sugar. Coconut is also an option.
My teenager initially said they were good although a little weird but the next day he decided he is a fan!
