These coconut apricot 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.
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 apricot energy balls replicate the flavor of those Kind bars without all the fillers.
Apricot Bites Tips
Use a food processor or high powered blender to combine the ingredients for these healthy snacks. I like to leave little bits of each ingredient for the best texture.
Trader Joe’s carries unsulfured apricots that work well in this recipe, but any dried apricots will do.
Refrigerate these coconut apricot bites for several days, or transfer them to the freezer for later use.
Try these peanut butter cookie dough bites for another easy, healthy snack that tastes like a treat.
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.

These look nice. I don’t eat coconut so I’m going to try these using hemp seeds in place of coconut. Do you think that will work? 🙂
I haven’t tried these with hemp seeds. Please let me know how they turn out.
I just discovered your blog a few days ago and spent two evenings scrolling through all your recipes. I have tried two of them so far (the other one being your Raspberry Vanilla Overnight Oats which I think I could eat every morning for a month) and OMG THEY ARE SO DELICIOUS!! Thanks a lot for this simple yet amazing idea. Greetings from Germany!
Thanks, Lisa. So glad you’re enjoying the recipes!
I just made these and they are not coming together into balls, they just crumble. Any suggestions?
Sorry to hear that, Andrea. Add water 1 teaspoon at a time until they come together for you. That always works for me. Let me know it that does the trick.
