For the balls

For the coating

  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds


  • 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.
  • In the same food processor, place ½ cup sunflower seeds, figs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and cardamom. Processes until it forms a sticky dough.
  • 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.
  • Roll each ball (or as many as you want) into the processed sunflower seed "flour."
  • They are ready to enjoy immediately.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
