How to Prepare Apricot Energy Balls [Vegan]

  1. Blend the first 2 ingredients in a food processor, until they are combined and smooth in texture.
  2. Place the additional 1/4 cup of coconut onto a tray.
  3. Roll the apricot mixture into balls, about a heaped teaspoon per ball. Place the balls onto the tray where you put the additional coconut. Shake the tray back and forth until all the balls are covered in coconut.
  4. Serve straight away or place the apricot balls into an air-tight container and refrigerate.

If you can’t find “super juicy apricots" which are much stickier than normal apricots, just add a little pure maple syrup when you blend the apricots and coconut together. You may also need to coat the balls in a little water when you roll them in the additional coconut.

  1. I follow recipes closely as I am not good or creative in the kitchen. It would have been really helpful if you would have put DRIED apricots in recipe. As a writer and recipe writer, you should know the difference a word makes in recipes. The description "soft and juicy Mediterranean" apricots does not tell me they are DRIED. Sounds like fresh to me. I never made made apricot balls before, and I really like the simplicity of your recipe. However, apricots are expensive in Minnesota on a tight budget, and now I have 2 cups of apricot-coconut soup that I don\’t know what to do with it. Maybe I didn\’t think it through all the way, but a correct description of ingredients is essential in any recipe. When I\’m past being upset about wasting 5 beautiful apricots, I will try this again with DRIED apricots.

    1. I did exactly the same thing!! And it\’s 3 years later. Please, as the author of the recipe, can you correct the ingredients so others don\’t do the same wasteful thing!! :(
