The GOOD in Goodie Balls

What’s round, tastes great, is actually healthy and is made with Barefoot Farm love?


GOODIE BALLS! These high energy snacks are D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. and they’re a great convenient healthy option when you need a little pep-up between meals.


A wholefood snack which is actually GOOD for you, there’s no weird numbers or letters (those are the little nasties that sneak up in your food and cause mayhem in your body without you realising). No ingredient list that resembles a conspiracy theory encrypted code here…we’re all natural here!. This means that Goodie Balls are nutrient dense and healthier for you than most other “Bliss Balls” without any compromise on taste.


There are three flavours to choose from: my ‘out and about around town’ favourite is Almond Date. Cashew Goji is my ‘at home doing stuff’ choice whilst Hazelnut Cocao is my ‘after the kids have gone to bed me time on the couch’ go too.. 


What’s the saying? “Don’t eat anything your grandmother wouldn’t recognise as food”. Have you ever tried to pronounce some of the things many company’s manufacture and then label it as “food”. Goodie Balls on the other hand have two main ingredients: a selection of nuts expertly mixed with a selection of fruits. Mother nature is amazing no need to go messing around with fandangled engineered foods sometimes the simplest things in life are actually the best.


No cheap fillers in these little goodies such as milk powders, rice or wheat flours, which mean our GOODIE BALLS are vegan and gluten free as well as being a low inflammation nutritious snack and FODMAP and gut health friendly.


What makes GOODIE BALLS different?

It’s time to say goodbye to a Barefoot Farm favourite.

After restocking our incredible retail partners post Christmas we are left with only 3 jars left for sale on the website, run don’t walk!!!!

It is with a heavy heart and sadness in our voices that we pass on this distressing and tragic news. It has been a flavoursome journey that all began between two buns as an infant before finally laying to rest beside a well aged Stilten. Coming from bold pedigree with the courage to stand up against sceptics, you were eventually able to rise among the ranks to heights never experience by a single condiment. 


With the death of such a prominent member of our product suite, we would like to pay tribute to a few noteworthy additions who featured heavy during your life and success. Rosemary, for her added notes. Balsamic for his age and wisdom. The twins Red and White Wyne for their robust and equally subtle bouquet. Finally the master behind the label sliced Brown Onion, for her raw ability to be thrown into any situation, sweat it out and break down to deliver such a sweet yet complex outcome.


You will be sorely missed French Style Caramelised Onion. You have been a versatile accompaniment for years and have touch so many lives and tastebuds. Beautifully sweet with deep notes that took inspiration from French style cuisine. Farewell old friend, you will never be forgotten.


barefoot farm byron pecan apple crumble recipe

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

Our version of a classic – we like to cut back on refined sugars in this iconic dish, so we recommend using coconut sugar which has a lower GI, packed full of minerals and well as imparting a wonderfully sweet caramel flavour. The Maple roasted Pecan Granola crumble topping pairs so wonderfully with this apple crumble, and you may like to experiment with some variations like swapping apple for pear or 1/2 apple 1/2 peaches to make something unique and amazing.

Apple Mix

  • 4 cups tinned apples
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1/4 cup water


  • 1 1/2 cups maple roasted pecan granola
  • 120 grams butter (chopped and softened (if needed you can use oil or a vegan butter substitute))
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but we think it's worth it)
  • 1/3 cup flour of your choice (we use a gluten free or spelt flour)
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced
  2. Combine tinned apples, lemon juice, vanilla paste and water in small saucepan over low-medium heat. Cook, stirring for 3 minutes or until apple is slightly softened.
  3. To make the crumble, combine flour of your choice and coconut sugar, maple roasted pecan granola and butter in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Transfer apples into a ovenproof baking dish, draining off most of the liquid
  5. Sprinkle crumble mixture over the apples
  6. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden
  7. Serve warm with ice-cream, vanilla yoghurt or whipped cream

Barefoot Farm Australian pecans citrus glazed

Citrus Glazed Pecans

Citrus Glazed Pecans

If you love the Barefoot Farm Maple Roasted Pecans, this recipe is for you.

A subtle hint of maple syrup with a fresh twist of your favourite citrus fruit, these glazed pecans are the perfect addition to salads, desserts, chacuterie boards, grazing tables or just on their own for a delicious snack.

  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1 tbsp your citrus juice (we used mandarin)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C
  2. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, citrus juice and maple syrup and stir vigorously. Make sure that the syrup and juice is combined and that the pecans have been coated nicely.
  3. Pour the pecans and syrup/juice mixture into a pan over low to medium heat and stir continuously for 5-10 minutes. It’s very important that you don’t let the pecans sit too long as they will burn very easily. You’ll know they’re ready when there is very little of the syrup/juice mixture and you can smell the amazing scent of toasted pecans.
  4. Place the pecans on a flat tray in a single layer on a layer of baking paper. Try and make sure that no pecans are touching. Bake for 10-15 minutes while keeping a close eye to make sure that you don’t burn your pecans.
  5. Your pecans will be done when they have a nice, glossy dark brown glaze. Pull them out, let them cool and put them on/in whatever floats your boat!


This recipe is based on 1 cup of glazed pecans. If you want more or less, adjust the amount of citrus juice and maple syrup you add depending on how many pecans you use.

This is a fun recipe that can be customised to suit your preferences or intended use of the final product. Experiment with different citrus fruits for some amazing variations.

Chocolate Pecan Crunch Raw Vegan Gluten free Keto Paleo

Chocolate Pecan Crunch

Chocolate Pecan Crunch

This little slice is packed full of protein and healthy fats. It will keep you going all day as a mid morning snack, pre gym work out boost or as a healthy indulgence. Difficulty 3/4.

  • 2 cups pecan kernal (Purchase <a href="https://www.barefootfarmbyron.com/shop/natural-raw-pecans-1kg/" target="_blank"> here)
  • 2 cups water kefir optional for soaking (Soaking pecans for 12 hours in water kefir will activate the pecans, making nutrient uptake easier for the body. It also releases the natural sweetness of the pecan removing any need for any kind of sweetness.)
  • 1 cup nut butter (I use almond or macadamia butter)
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup coconut shredded or desiccated
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 tsp salt (I use Himalayan rock salt, Murry River pink salt is a good alternative)
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod (Split open and run a knife down the bean to extract the sticky seeds. Use the seeds not pod. Vanilla powder is a good alternative.)
  • 5 drops wild orange essential oil, food grade (Or to taste)

Chocolate topping

  • 1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut cream (Tip: Open can of coconut cream and set in the fridge for 1 hour, spoon out set cream off the top. Allow to warm to room temperature before using)
  • 2 tsp sweetener of your choice (Can leave out if you wish)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Drain pecans if soaked in water kefir.
  2. Place pecans in food processor and process until a meal is formed, add nut butter, cocao powder, coconut oil and process until combined.
  3. Add all other remaining ingredients and process until combined.
  4. Taste, If you would like it a little sweeter add 2tsp of honey or maple syrup.
  5. If following a Keto eating plan add 1 tsp of monk fruit extract.
  6. Line a slice tray with a silicon baking parchment.
  7. Place mix into slice tray and press out evenly.
    TIP: Place a layer of cling wrap over the mix and flatten the cling wrap with your hands. This will stop your hands from getting sticky.
  8. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set.

Chocolate topping

  1. Combine ingredients in food processor and drizzle onto set slice or pour on for a top layer.
    Tip: Sandwich bag filled with topping makes a great piping bag for latticing.

  2. Return to fridge to set.

Cut, serve and best of all share.

Will keep stored in the fridge for 3 weeks.
