These coconut apricot energy bites are a delicious snack to grab when you’re on the go. One of my favorite store-bought snack bars used to be the Almond and Apricot Kind Bar. I loved the combination of apricots, almonds, and coconut. However, when I realized that those bars contained 12 ingredients including soy lecithin and other mysterious things I wouldn’t cook with at home, I stopped eating them. These energy bites replicate the flavor of those Kind bars without all the fillers.
Coconut Apricot Energy Bites
- 1 cup dried apricots I use unsulfured apricots from Trader Joe’s
- 3/4 cup Medjool dates
- 3/4 cup almonds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and chop them until a paste is formed. Don’t chop them so much that you can’t see little bits of almonds.
Form 1-inch balls and refrigerate. They will be set in about an hour, but you can also eat them straight out of the food processor.
Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
