Nutty Apricot Balls
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 8 ounces dried apricots (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • ¼ cup + ⅓ cup pecan halves
  • ¼ cup honey
  1. Start by processing the ⅓ cup pecan halves in your food processor. The balls will be coated with this, so it needs to be very finely ground, almost like a meal. Remove to a small bowl.
  2. Place the dried apricots, coconut, and ¼ cup pecan halves in the food processor. Process until finely chopped and well combined.
  3. Add the honey and process until it is evenly distributed.
  4. Place the mixture in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate about 30 – 60 minutes until chilled through.
  5. Use a spoon to scoop up a small amount of the mixture. Press it together with your hands and form a small ball 1 – 1½ inches in diameter.
  6. Roll the ball in the finely ground nuts. Place on a serving plate or in a container.
  7. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
