A perfect real food alternative to the mounds of Cadbury Favourites. And if coffee flavour isn't your thing, omit and instead experiment with Christmas spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger for a festive flavour.

1 cup almond meal
1 1/2 cup coconut flakes, finely chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, finely chopped
1 tbsp raw cacoa powder
1 tbsp ground coffee
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 frozen brown banana, blitz in food processor
juice of ½ lemon
1/4 cup coconut oil
1. Finely chop one cup of coconut flakes and the sunflower seeds, blitz the frozen banana and juice the half lemon. Place all ingredients in a bowl and add the almond meal, coffee and cacoa powder. Mix to form a sticky but not wet mixture.
2. Place in fridge for 1 hr.
3. Remove from fridge and roll into walnut sized balls, coat hands in a little coconut oil to prevent the mixture from sticking.
4. Roll the balls first in a little coconut oil then in the roughly chopped additional coconut flakes
