I am always trying new sweet treats and all have no added sugar, and are therefore far healthier than a bought sweet/biscuit.

These are delicious, cheap to make and are great with that cup of coffee at any time without stacking on the calories!

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Serves: About 20 - 25 balls

1 cup dried apricots (I always buy Angus Park as they are juiciest)
1 - 2 tbsp honey, warmed
¼ cup light coconut cream
25 g butter, melted
½ cup shredded coconut
About ½ cup extra to coat

Put the apricots, honey, coconut cream, butter and coconut in a food processor.


Process until the mixture forms one big clump or ball.


Put the mixture into a bowl, and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until it is firm.

Using damp hands, roll the mixture into about 20 to 25 balls - I made a few smaller ones foro the grand children.

Roll them in the extra coconut, or you could use hundreds and thousands if you have children though these are pure sugar!

Put them in a Tupperware or similar, cover and keep in the fridge.
