For the balls
For the coating
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  1. In a food processor, pulse 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds until the consistency is almost like flour. A few little chunks are fine. Do not over process as it will become sticky. Pour into a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In the same food processor, place 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, figs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and cardamom. Processes until it forms a sticky dough.

  3. Roll about a tbsp of dough into a ball. I used a small cookie scoop for this to ensure they were all the same size. Repeat with the remaining dough until gone.
  4. Roll each ball (or as many as you want) into the processed sunflower seed "flour."
  5. They are ready to enjoy immediately.
  6. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
