Healthy Apricot and Almond Rounds

by possandruby

Spring is here and we are emerging from our winter hibernation. In winter most of us spend a lot of time indoors enjoying way too much comfort food while we watch football and Netflix. As the sun comes out and the days are longer it’s time to get off the couch and ditch the comfort food for healthier choices. It’s the season that encourages us to get active and start preparing our beach bods for the summer that is just around the corner.

Here is a quick and easy apricot and almond snack that you can make in minutes.  Featuring the perfect pairing of apricots and almonds with just a few other pantry ingredients you will be able to whip these up effortlessly.  Enjoy them with a cuppa or as a quick afternoon pick me up when your energy is low. These little treats also make a great lunch box filler for the kids (…and the adults).

  • 250g dried apricots, halved
  • 250g almonds, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • Shredded or desiccated coconut for topping

Place apricots, almonds and coconut oil in a food processor and blend until all ingredients are chopped and combine to form a rough paste. Roll one tablespoon of the mix into balls and toss in coconut. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note: if you are using apricots that are quite dry soak in warm water for a few minutes until they soften.

Makes approximately 12 rounds

  • For a indulgent treat dip the rounds into melted white chocolate and top with small pieces of chopped apricot
  • Add one tablespoon of shredded coconut to the mixture to add more coconut flavour
