Soak raisins in water for a few hours. For a treat use fruit juice, rum, sherry or brandy. Place sunflower seeds in a blender and grind to powder (meal). Mix carob powder, 1½ cups of shredded coconut, sunflower meal, and raisins.
Peel apples and grate coarsely in a food processor. Mix in half the apple. Add the rest slowly while stirring until a thick consistency is obtained. You should be able to form into soft balls that hold together.
Place a thin layer of shredded coconut at the bottom of a large pyrex dish. Pour the mix on top and press to make a 1 inch thick layer or, alternatively, roll into balls and roll them in coconut.
