Coconut Apricot Bites

If you’re looking for something sweet and full of energy, these yummy little coconut apricot bites are for you!  They can be rolled into small balls for on the go, or pressed into a pan and sliced like fudge 🙂

Coconut Apricot Bites

If you know me, you know that I have a sweet tooth.  Some days I need something sweet after every meal.  In fact my most recent health goal involves actually having something that can be considered a meal before I have something sweet.  There’s something about these that is amazing, and yet I can’t eat more than one.  Eating more than one probably wouldn’t make me feel any worse(not like eating a second piece of cake) and yet it’s so much easier to resist.  Maybe because one is so satisfying.

Coconut Apricot Bites

I keep them in the fridge and when they reach your mouth they melt.  The almost tartness of the apricots is perfectly balanced with a tiny bit of salt and some honey.  Feel free to use a different sweetener if you don’t agree with using honey, but remember honey will crystalize in the fridge where others may not.

A yummy sweet treat made with coconut and apricots.  Great as a snack or even dessert!

Course: Dessert, Snack
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw honey or other liquid sweetener
Instructions
  1. Blend half the coconut into a powder then remove it from the food processor.

  2. Blend the apricots till they're in very small pieces.

  3. Throw everything in the food processor and blend till it forms a "dough".  Then either scoop and roll into balls or feel free to refrigerate till the mixture firms up a little more before rolling as the coconut oil might liquefy if the dough is warm.  You can even press into a pan, refrigerate and then slice like fudge

Recipe Notes

This time I made these with a little bit of vanilla bean paste which is why there are tiny little black flecks in the picture.  It was delicious, but not necessary, regular vanilla works just fine!

Sounds amazing! Have you ever frozen them, and how did they fare if so? Thanks 🙂

I haven’t frozen them, but I’m sure they would be delicious frozen(and wont break your teeth because the coconut oil will still be fairly soft) and I’m sure they would thaw well.

I just made these and love them! It took less than ten minutes to blend and roll into little balls. The hard part was waiting for them to chill in the fridge! I can’t wait for my boyfriend to try them. I will definitely be making these again to satisfy my sweet tooth. Thank you for the amazing recipe! 🙂
