I think we can all agree we love a delicious healthy snack! It has been sunny the last few days so I was inspired to make a summer flavoured snack ball.
I love apricots and snack on dried ones all the time - just make sure you are getting sulphur free ones. No need for nasty additives!
Recently I asked you guys what you want to see more of on my Instagram and the majority of you voted for snacks - so here you go.
The coconut really gives it some summer vibes, it is easy to make, has tons of fibre and will also curb some sugar cravings. I like to add protein powder into them as well, so I can eat them as a post workout snack.
As with all recipes get creative - I have made this one rolled in pistachios too, which is so delicious!
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
1/2 cup raw almonds (you can also use almond meal instead)
1/2 cup desiccated coconut ( plus a little extra to roll them in, but you can get creative here and roll them in pistachios, hemp seeds, sesame seeds)
1 cup dried apricots (look for sulphur free ones)
1 medjool date (pitted)
Protein Powder (optional and chose a lactose free one if possible, like this one)
pinch of salt
Cover the apricots with boiling water in a heat proof bowl and let sit for 5 minutes
Rinse the apricots and quarter them
Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the date) into a blender and blend it on high until it all has flour like consistency
Add the apricots and date to the blender and pulse the mixture until it starts sticking together. If needed scrape down the sides until it is all incorporated
I like to wet my palms when I am working with sticky mixtures
Roll into bite sized balls
Roll each ball in either coconut, nuts or seeds of your choice
Store in the fridge
