3 Ingredient Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

3 Ingredient Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

These 3 ingredient Apricot Coconut bliss balls need no cooking and are vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and contain no added or processed sugar. Adding a pinch of turmeric gives a depth of flavour and a beautiful golden colour to these bliss balls. If short on time, press the Apricot mixture into a slice tray and set in the fridge before cutting. I first came across Apricot coconut bites in the health food section of my grocery store. As usual, excited by something vegan and remotely healthy in a mainstream grocery store aisle I bought some! After the package got home, I noticed the horrendous amounts of sugar and other additives in the Apricot bites. These delectable little balls are a great home-made substitute and perfect lunchbox additions. Best made with organic, sulphur free apricots.

Instructions
  1. Soak the apricots in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes and drain well.
  2. I use my food processor bowl to process the apricots and turmeric together first until chunky.
  3. Add the coconut meal and process until smooth (My Kitchen Aid takes about 4 to 5 minutes to do this).
  4. Remove apricot into a mixing bowl and roll into olive sized balls.
  5. If wanting to make Apricot Coconut bites, then line a 7" tray with grease proof paper and spread the apricot mixture into the tray. Cool for 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
Notes
  1. Use 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder if fresh turmeric unavailable.
  2. Process the coconut until buttery for best results.
  3. Coat in 2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut meal or flakes before serving, if desired.
