Apricot Coconut Balls: No Bake Nutrition

Steph S. | ::steph chows::

Apricot Coconut Balls are a great go-to snack. Throw them in the lunch box as a treat, or eat 'em straight out of the fridge.

I have a thing for no bake healthy cookies in the summer. (This is a hint to check out my No Bake Peanut Butter Balls Recipe in a minute.) Sure, we have AC, but who feels like turning the oven on when it’s a million billion degrees outside? Not this girl.

That being said, no-bake cookies are pretty great no matter what season it is. They're a go-to snack for me, whether it's hot or cold outside.

I keep a bag of these on hand in the fridge as a handy dandy grab-and-go snack. They'd be great for lunchbox treats for you or the kids too.

Dried apricots mixed with coconut and nutella might sound like an odd combination but the flavors really meld well together in these Apricot Coconut Balls. Did you know nutella is actually really easy to make? Whip up a batch of my homemade nutella, which happens to be vegan, and healthier because there's no added fat and only all natural sugars in my recipe. It’s a keeper for sure.

What weird and fun flavor combinations do you love to pair together than end up being amazing?

  12 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup oats
