Apricot Coconut and Nut Balls

I got the creative urge this afternoon to experiment in the kitchen. So I got together a few ingredients with the idea of coming up with a new snack that provided a good source of protein and essential fatty acids....Master 2 was happy playing with his new toy truck we sourced from a toy hire place so I grabbed the few precious minutes I would have spare and as you can see the end result is pretty good!!

The best part of this recipe is that it requires no baking, just pop everything into a food processor and you are done! Perfect for a nutritious snack, or even a dessert - this recipe only uses a small amount of apricots for a bit of sweetness!

100g Dried apricots

70g Walnut pieces (1 packet)

70g Sliced Almonds

1 Cup Coconut thread (or shredded coconut)

2 Tb Dark coco powder

4 Tb Coconut Oil

Desiccated Coconut (for rolling balls in)

Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined.

Roll into balls in your hands and then place on a plate and roll in desiccated coconut (recipe makes approximately 20 small balls)

To store place in an air-tight container and keep in the fridge - will last at least a week (unless household members gobble them up!!)
