Apricot Coconut Balls


A delicious snack you can knock out in minutes? With only 4 ingredients (plus water) you will have these apricot coconut balls made in super speed. These are perfect for an afternoon treat with natural apricot-y sweetness to satisfy those 3pm cravings. The kids will love them too but (secretly) this is the kind of food I like to make, hide high in the fridge behind the milk and tell them they’re all gone… I think you will too!
