- 300 grams of dried apricots
- 1 cup of desiccated coconut (1/4 of a cup to be put to the side – approx 25 grams) 3/4 cup of almond meal
- 3 tablespoon of maple syrup
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 2 tablespoon of water
- In a food processor, add the dried apricots. Blitz until until finely chopped.
- Add in ¾ of a cup of desiccated coconut, almond meal, chai seeds, vanilla extract, maple syrup and water.
- Blitz until completely combined. The mixture should be fairly sticky but easy to come together.
- Grab the left over desiccated coconut (¼ cup), place in a bowl.
- Line an 8 inch square dish or baking tray (or whatever size you have) with baking paper.
- Sprinkle some of the coconut into the empty tray, making sure it’s eventually distributed. This will help the slice come off of the baking paper later.
- Using a spoon or spatula, spoon the apricot mixture into the tray and make sure to firmly flatten and smooth the mixture.
- Add the remaining coconut to the top of the mixture.
- Refrigerate for an hour before removing to slice into sizes of your choosing. I cut mine into 5-6cm cubes.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
- You can use maple syrup, honey, or even golden syrup (popular in Australia).
- Store these apricot balls in the fridge for up to 7 days or you can freeze them for up to 3 months.
- These are refined sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan
- By adding in the Almond meal and chai seeds, you’re adding in adding fibre into this recipe.
If you don’t have a food processor you can cut the apricot finely and hand mix the ingredients, it will take some elbow grease.
