I’m well known for my large 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.
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 you a different sweetener if you don’t agree with using honey, but remember honey solidifies in the fridge where others may not.
Coconut Apricot Bites
- 1/2 C dried apricots
- 1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
- Tiny pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp raw honey
I like to blend half the coconut into a powder then remove it from the food processor and blend the apricots till they’re in very small pieces. Then 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 they firm 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 🙂
