Apricot Energy Bites



Yield 25

These homemade energy bites are so much healthier than the energy bars you find in the grocery store.



  1. Place coconut, dates, and vanilla in food processor and process until finely chopped.
  2. Add salt, apricots, and nuts, and process until nuts are coarsely chopped.
  3. Add granola and process until granola is very, very finely chopped.
  4. Add orange juice concentrate and process until mixed.
  5. Shape into 1 1/4-inch balls. (Place in freezer for a few minutes if mixture is too stick to roll into balls.)

Keep in freezer.


Walnuts can be used in place of cashews but only if you really like walnuts as they lend a strong walnut flavor to the Apricot Bites.


This recipe uses a large (12- to 14-cup) food processor. If your food processor is smaller, divide recipe in half.

If preferred, these can be made into bars instead of bites.

Make Ahead Tip:

These keep well in the freezer for up to 3 months.
