Ingredients

High-fibre chewy fusion balls
  • 1/2 stick fresh lemongrass (10g)
  • 2 fresh kaffir lime leaves
  • 5 centimetre (2-inch) piece fresh ginger (25g)
  • 1 cup (55g) finely chopped dried apple
  • 1 cup (200g) finely chopped dried figs
  • 1 cup (70g) all-bran
  • 1 cup (75g) shredded coconut
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (175g) honey
  • 125 gram (4 ounces) butter
  • 1/3 cup (75g) firmly packed light brown sugar

Method

High-fibre chewy fusion balls
  • 1
    Finely chop lemongrass and lime leaves. Peel and grate ginger. Combine lemongrass, lime leaves and ginger in large bowl with dried fruit. Stir in bran, coconut and oats.
  • 2
    Heat honey, butter and sugar in small saucepan, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, without stirring, about 7 minutes or until a small amount dropped in a cup of cold water forms a soft ball (or until the mixture reaches 116°C/240ºF on a candy thermometer).
  • 3
    Add honey mixture to dry ingredients; mix until well combined. Cool 5 minutes, then roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on baking-paper-lined tray. Cover; refrigerate until set.

Notes

Store the balls in an airtight container, separated with baking paper, at room temperature, for up to 1 week.
