Sweet Walnut & Apricot Balls

These Apricot Balls use walnuts, seeds and dried fruit to make a sweet and healthy snack. They will fill you up as well as satisfying sweet cravings.

Ingredients

Ingredients for Apricot Balls
  • 1 ½ cup raw, shelled walnuts
  • ½ cup sunflower and pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • ½ cup dried apricots (chopped)
  • ½ cup dried, shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1-3 tbsp water (as needed)
  • More dried coconut to coat the balls.
  • 1 food processor with an “S” blade.

Directions

  1. Put the nuts and seeds into the food processor and process on high until they are well chopped (but not pulverised into crumbs.)
  2. Add the dried fruit and ½ cup coconut and process again until the fruit is thoroughly chopped and mixed with the nuts.
  3. Add peanut butter and honey and mix on lowest speed.
  4. The mixture should be sticky enough for you to easily form a small ball with your fingers. If not, add 1 – 3 tbsp water and mix again.
  5. Wet your fingers with water (to prevent them from being covered with sticky mixture) and form the fruit and walnut mixture into small balls.
  6. Coat the balls in dried coconut.
  7. Store in the refrigerator, where they will firm up and keep for several weeks.
