  • As you can see, it is a very quick recipe to prepare and without difficulty, which only requires the time to toast the nuts. Once ready, you will have the delights in a few minutes.
  • Use the dried fruit that you like the most: cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios... But whatever you choose, when you toast it, do it lightly and over medium-low heat, stirring from time to time and keeping an eye on it, to prevent them from browning too much.
  • Instead of dried apricots (or a part of them), you can use pitted dates or other dried fruit if you have it at home. These delicacies are one of the many recipes that you can make with dried fruits, seeds, cereals, or nuts. Change ingredients according to your preferred tastes and combine different fruits or nuts to make varied delicacies and have different snacks to choose from.

Hola Trinidad, Marisa lo dice un poco en broma pero la verdad es que buena razón tiene… Puedes combinar estas bolas energéticas con varios ingredietnes, escogiendo el que más te guste: puedes pasarlas por cacao en polvo, por ejemplo, o bañarlas de almendras o nueces troceadas (como si hicieras panellets, puedes pincelarlas de huevo o de agua con azúcar y pasarlas por tus frutos secos favoritos para asegurar que queden pegados… aunque sin nada y presionando un poco también se quedarán pegados); también puedes bañarlos de azúcar o de azúcar avainillado, o de una mezcla de canela, azúcar moreno y cacao, por ejemplo. Espero que alguna de estas opciones te encaje! Un abrazo, a disfrutar de estas delicias, están riquísimas y llenas de energía!
