Heat the oven to 200C.

Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend well until mixture comes together as a smooth paste.

Chill the mixture for 1 hour.

Scoop balls of approximately 50g each and roll them into little balls.

Bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes at 200C turning halfway.

Check whether they are cooked through by inserting a knife and testing whether it comes out clean – if not clean bake a little longer.

Allow them to cool a bit to firm up after baking and then enjoy!
