Apricot Sunshine Bites (3)

These after-school snacks are bursting with energy and with natural sweetness from the coconut and dates. They’re the perfect boost to get through a busy afternoon!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup + 1/4 cup walnuts, divided
  • 1/2 cup almonds, divided
  1. Combine the apricots and dates in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Add the coconut, flax, water, and salt; pulse to blend.
  3. Add 1/3 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup almonds to the mixture, and process until it forms a ball – the mixture will be quite sticky.
  4. Finely chop the remaining 1/4 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup almonds, and transfer to a shallow bowl.
  5. Using wet hands, divide the apricot mixture into tablespoon-size balls, rolling between your hands, and then rolling in the chopped nuts.
  6. Refrigerate at least 45 minutes before serving.
