A quick and easy treat sweetened with natural sugars.

Apricot and Coconut Bliss Balls by Eat This, My Friend

Ingredients






What to do

1. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until a coarse breadcrumb consistency is reached.

2. Add the apricots one by one, continuing to pulse.

3. Repeat with the dates.

4. Add the shredded coconut and coconut oil, and give it one more good pulse.

5. The mix should adhere when pressed but not be overly wet and sticky. Add some more coconut or ground almonds if it is, or an extra date or two if the mixture is dry.

6. Roll the mixture into balls the size of a walnut shell, then coat them in more shredded coconut.

7. Store in an airtight container. These bliss balls keep in the fridge for up to a week.
