Apricot Coconut Balls (three ingredients!)

The kids go to a daycare/preschool where I provide the lunches.
They also have a nut free/egg free policy.

Sometimes it’s hard to make snacks for them.
Dried fruits are easy but something I think my children see them less as the treat they are and more as something to be consumed in great amounts.
So I make these babies

Because I have to make them, obviously they are a treat.

Ingredients

image

1 cup (ish) dried apricots

image

2/3 cup desiccated coconut.
Plus extra for rolling in.
About a tablespoon of coconut oil (couldn’t get a nice photo because it’s a friggen tablespoon of oil, okay?)

Method
Chuck it all in a blender or food processor until it looks like this:

Use a Heaped teaspoon and roll it into balls.
Then put the extra coconut in a container and roll the balls in it realise by doing that it doesn’t really stick so gently pick up a small amount with each ball and squeeze it until it sticks to the outside.
Repeat.

Store them in the fridge because then they’ll stay in shape on account of coconut oil solidifying below about 20 degrees celcius.

Pro tip

Store them in a container that is not clear so the kids can’t find the hiding spot
