*You can use any dried fruit (raisins, prunes, dried bananas, dried ginger and even candied fruit, if desired), the main thing - combine them so that they do not interrupt each other's taste. Do not put all at the same time.
- cocoa powder (or kerob) - 1-2 tbsp;
You can also use coconut, sesame and so on., At your discretion.
Dried fruits wash and soak for about 30 minutes in warm water, so that they somewhat softened.

In the blender bowl (yes, the blender must be powerful enough!) Put dried fruit and nuts. If desired, add the cinnamon. Grind to homogeneity (about 1 minutes). If necessary, load the parts into 2-3 stage.
Note that oatmeal can also be sent to the blender bowl with nuts and dried fruits. And you can add the following (I did so), stir paddle.

Wet your hands and make small balls (walnut). Ready to submit in a bowl of Cocoa / Carob chips or coconut. After - fold on the platter (it can be covered with paper).
