Bake 1,3kg ( 3 very large ones) whole sweet potatoes ( the orange sweet potatoes, kumera) in a corningware dish with a lid on in your oven till soft. Keep the skin on. Remove baked sweet potatoes. The centre of the sweet potato must be really soft. Scoop the flesh out of the peel. Let it cool for a bit. Roast 48 macadamia nuts that have been cut in half, add to the sweet potato flesh, add ground pepper to taste add, ½ teaspoon of nutmeg, 1 ½ cups of fresh mint leaves that have been roughly cut, add about 400g sheep’s feta ( I usually buy the Kebia sheeps feta, the 900g) that you crumble though your fingers. Dry fry about 400g of chickpea flour. Add the dry fried chickpea flour to the rest of the mixture Use your fingers or your Kitchen Aid to mix all the ingredients together. Make sure it is well mixed. The mixture is very sticky. Roll about 68 balls the size of an Australian 50c.

Place on magic cooking sheet [url="http://www.magiccookingsheet.com.au/index. asp?page= Magic-Cooking- Products- Home in a baking tray bake for 45-50 min in a fan forced oven 180-190. They are cooked when they bounce bake when you press on them. Serve with sweet chilli sauce or, lime or lemon juice. Freeze well. Great as a snack to work or for school lunches.

Great recipe! We would have to omit the Macadamia for school lunches as our school is "nut free".
