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!
