Cashew Apricot Balls

Grab and go, healthy cashew apricot balls- perfect for a snack or breakfast

Cashew Apricot Balls

Some of my clients say that they find dates too sweet, so I wanted to create a little energy ball that would satisfy, yet not be overly sweet. I created this recipe for cashew apricot balls and I have to say they are really delicious. Apricots are full of Vitamin A, C and contain potassium, iron, zinc, calcium and manganese. This recipe takes only minutes to make, so on your next trip to the health food store, pick up some cashews and organic dried apricots so you can make these amazing health balls.DSC_0324

  2. Add in coconut oil slowly until mixture begins to stick together.
  3. Roll into small balls and store in a sealed container in the fridge
