  • Difficulty Easy
  • 4 Ingredients

I make these as they are nut free and a healthier alternative to the kids lunch boxes over junk food, packets of chips etc. All the ingredients can easily be purchased at IGA

Ingredients (serves 1 | makes 12 )

  • 1 cup Coconut Dessicated
  • 1 cup Apricots Dried
  • 1 tbsp Cacao
  • 1 tbsp Apricot Jam (optional)


  1. Blend dried apricots up in a food processor or Ninja for 4 minutes.
  2. Add coconut and cacao and blend for another minute.
  3. Pour mixture into bowl and roll into small balls firmly pressing together all the mix. If the mix is too dry add a very small amount of water or a tablespoon of apricot jam to rehydrate apricots so they stick together.


To make more double quantities of each ingredient.

  • Delightful …sounds sooo yummy. thanks muchly.


  • I love this recipe. No flour, milk or eggs – ingredients that some people are unfortunate to be allergic to.


  • I’m an apricot fan so will love these. Thanks for the recipe.


  • I’m sure these are delicious and simple enough, thanks!


  • Yum choc and apricot sounds great


  • These look great, and so simple to make! I’m making some today!!


  • This sounds amazing i like the ingredients combination


  • These look soooo good! And sound far too good to be healthy lol sounds like a win/win!


  • sounds delicious, healthy and I love different ‘ball’ things as they are great to put in lunch boxes.


  • Always loving new and different options for ‘balls’. Thanks for sharing.


  • Very simple but tasty recipe


  • Always nice.
    It’s always nice to vary as well. I regularly make just apricot coconut balls (so no jam, no cacao).


  • Oh yum, and only three ingredients, I really like that. I would leave out the jam because of the sugar


  • A new and different take on truffles and/or protein balls. Love to try these.


  • These sound good, I could get my older daughter to make them herself for school treats
