These are really easy to make, they are healthy and they look pretty too. All the sweetness comes from the dried apricots but if you want you can add a couple of tablespoons of caster sugar to the mixture to make them that little bit sweeter. I also made a batch using organic apricots too – they are not quite so pretty but taste just as yummy.
200g dried apricots
50g desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
rind of 1 lemon
Blitz the apricots in a blender or food processor until you have a smooth paste. Transfer this to a small bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Once combined roll into small balls (about the size of walnuts) and cover in more desiccated coconut. Then keep in fridge and served chilled.
