Prune & Peanut butter Balls

GF | DF | RSF | EF
Course 2 meals a day, Baby Led Weaning, BLW, lunchbox, Snack
Servings 10 balls


  • Blender
  • bowl


  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup prunes (soaked in boiling water first if they are dried)
  • 2 TBSP peanut butter allergen
  • 1 TBSP  melted coconut oil


  • If using dried prunes, soak them in boiling water first for roughly 30 minutes to help them soften. I recommend the brand Hiltona Organic Prunes as you don’t have to soak these and they taste great!
  • Take out a blender or food processor and add in the dessicated coconut and hemp seeds. Pulse until fine.
  •  Add in the prunes, melted coconut oil and peanut butter. Blend until the mixture begins to stay together.
  • Begin to roll them into balls, roughly one tablespoon each, then coat them in extra dessicated coconut.
  • Store in the fridge for up to five days, or make a big batch and freeze them for up to three months

Notes: for babies under 2 years, roll into log shape as opposed to ball shape which can pose a choking risk.
