Apricot bliss bites

Perfect for lunch boxes or an afternoon energy pick me up!

Ingredients: (makes approx. 12 bliss balls/bites)

  • 1½ cups dried apricots
  • 1¼ cups of unsalted nuts, a combination of almonds and cashews works well
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1-2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

    Optional: 1-2 tbsp maple syrup

How to make:

  1. In a food processor, blend the nuts until they resemble coarse breadcrumbs. This may take a good few minutes.

  2. Add the dried apricots, coconut, lemon zest and juice, pulse to combine until the apricots have been finely chopped.

  3. Remove a spoon full of the mixture and see if you can easily roll it into a ball and it sticks together. If it falls apart, you will need to add a tablespoon of water (or maple syrup), blitz again, then test again.
    Keep adding water or syrup until it is the desired consistency.

  4. Press firmly into a lined baking tray or roll into balls, then chill for a couple of hours.

Optional: Decorate with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate
