Apricot Almond Quick Bites




1 1/2 cups almonds

1/2 cup shredded coconut

approximately 20 dried apricots (roughly 3/4 to 1 cup)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon cardamon

1/8 teaspoon ginger


  1. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until they resemble a fairly fine flour.
  2. Add the coconut and the apricots and continue processing.
  3. Once the mixture is fully incorporated, add the spices and give it a few more pulses to distribute them evenly.
  4. The mixture should hold its shape when a bit of it is pressed together, but if not, simply add a few more processed apricots to bind it together.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes (to help it hold its shape).
  6. Form the chilled mixture into small balls of about one tablespoon. The mixture will come together when squeezed and rolled very gently.
  7. The balls will keep up to a week in the refrigerator or three months in the freezer.
