Apricot Cashew Bites
A tasty no-nasties snack or main meal addiction great for the whole family for a variety of different situations and occasions; from including in work/school lunches, taking on picnics, to making for parties and gatherings.
No added sugar.
The kids can even help with this one!
1 cup organic dried apricots
1 cup raw or activated and dried cashews
1 cup organic desiccated coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil
Optional: pure vanilla
Handy items to have
Small silicon moulds (I use mini pattycake moulds)
Roughly chop the apricots or just place all whole into the food processor if it's strong enough
Place all ingredients in the food processor and blitz or pulse until the mixture is crumbly and all broken up.
Spoon into moulds and press down firmly with the back of the spoon to ensure the mixture is compacted. Or get the kids to simply use their hands to 'stuff' the moulds. That's more fun!
Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to solidify then remove from moulds and serve
- Remember the coconut oil will melt when warm so these need to be kept cool until serving if it's a hot day.
- If you don't have moulds to use then simply roll the mixture into balls or logs.
- You can mix organic pure cocoa powder, a bit of coconut oil and raw honey together to drizzle on the cold bites for a nice chocolatey boost!
