12 Balls of Christmas: Apricot Coconut Balls

The 12 Balls of Christmas -

Amy:

For the sixth ball of Christmas I’d like to offer you….Apricot coconut balls!

My grandmother was requesting some non-chocolate recipes so here is a nice non-date, non-chocolate, nut-free ball for those not fond of those ingredients!  These ones are not overly sweet which is a nice change from the usual Christmas fair.  Plus they look so festive on the plate!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C dried apricots
  • 1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Tiny pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp raw honey

Directions:

1. Blend the coconut until fine.  Add everything into the food processor and blend until it forms a nice cohesive dough.

2. Roll into balls.  Place and lined parchment paper and let solidify in the fridge before serving!

  1. I made these today they are lovely not too sweet. I didn’t have coconut oil so I used peanut oil that I drained of my natural peanut butter jar. Will serve them to you boxing day. Nana.
