APRICOT BLISS BALLS - Nut Free, Lunch Box Friendly
Soak 1.5 cups of dried apricots (the brown ones, with no sulphites) for 5 mins in boiling or hot water.
In a food processor, or high speed blender/thermomix/vitamix combine:
1.5 cups oats
.5 cup dessicated coconut
protein powder ( I use The Healthy Chef Organic Pea Protein)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon sprinkle of sea salt
Blitz until combine/fairly fine.
Add in the apricots, a couple at a time, along with water to reach desired consistency
(usually between 2-4 tablespoons - i use the water they've been soaking in).
Roll into balls.
Serve as is, or rolled in coconut or oats etc.
Enjoy one or two before, during or after exercise.
Great in lunch boxes as they're nut free and provide balanced sugars (LOW GI is as well), protein and essential fatty acids.
