Apricot Nut Bites

Equipment needed: Food processor and scale recommended.


Ingredients:

Cashews, Hazelnuts, Apricots, Coconut Oil


I add all ingredients in my food processor to save time. Make sure you put the blades in first (Is it just me? I forget all the time and then have to dump out all ingredients to get the blades in. Arg)


Add:

40g Hazelnuts

50g Cashews (Unsalted)

about 16 dried apricots

add a tsp of coconut oil (or a little more, depending on consistency.)


It can stay chunky, if you like a bit more bite and crunch or you can chop it smaller and give it another spin. Either way, you want to make sure that the texture is wet enough for the mixture to easily stick together when you roll it into balls. I often make some smaller ones for my kids and a few slightly bigger for the adults. Add more coconut oil or a few more apricots if it is not quite there yet.


You can roll the balls in chia seeds, coconut shavings or any other addition you fancy. Again, make sure the balls are sticky enough, if you want to go that route.



Pop 'em in the fridge to set in a closed container, so they don't lose their moisture and enjoy them whenever you need a quick snack.
