I love that tiko lays against the side of my tent all night. It’s so comforting. Last night, though, I could hear the tiny, squeaky scurry of, perhaps a little mouse approaching tiko’s big body. Did he not see the big, sleeping canine? then, a high-pitched squeak. Aah. And the sound of Tiko’s big body with springing energy. No more mouse sounds…Hmmm….glad I didn’t see that. But i will remember not to leave my un-shelled sunflower seeds out anymore.
2 small crisp apples
1 T. coconut oil
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 c. walnuts
½ c. oats
1 heaping c. figs or dates, pitted
¼ tsp. ginger
½ tsp. cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
¼ tsp. salt
¼ c. coconut flour
Pit dates or wash figs and put in a bowl. Soak in warm to soften for 10 minutes. Drain and save the water for moistening the dough, if needed. Chop apples into large diced pieces and spread evenly in a glass pan or tray. Toss with coconut oil and cinnamon.
In a high-speed blender or food processor combine walnuts, oats, sea salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pulse a few times until mixture becomes broken down with large pieces throughout. Don’t over process.
Add in apples and soaked and drained figs or dates. Pulse until thick and sticky, with some bigger pieces for texture.
Roll apple mixture into heaped tablespoon sized balls, then in coconut flour to coat.
These will keep 3-4 days in the fridge, or up to a month In the freezer.
