Lunchbox: Apricot & Oat Balls

January 14, 2014

easy apricot balls recipe with oats - on

I’m on the hunt for lunchbox friendly snacks and I came across this Apricot Ball recipe from fellow Aussie blogger, Caz from The Truth About Mummy. I tried them out and they are easy to make and delicious! (My kids liked them too). I’ve converted this recipe for the Thermomix or you can head over to Caz’s blog for the non-thermomix version.


1 cup of dried apricots
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
1/2 cup of oat bran
1/4 cup of skim milk powder
2 tablespoons of boiling water
Fine desiccated coconut for coating



Thermomix: Slowly turn to 7 for 6 seconds


Thermomix: Slowly turn to 7 for 10 seconds


With your hands, roll mixture into small balls and drop into a bowl of fine desiccated coconut to coat.


Fabulous for the lunchbox! They freeze well too, so you can make up a double batch and pull them out on a need basis.

Just made these and the kids love them – thanks!! They also loved helping from the balls and roll them in the coconut – I didn’t love the mess they made while doing it lol. Do you have the recipe you use for the choc date balls?

These look great! Do you think the milk powder is essential? is it just for extra binding? I don’t normally have it in the pantry…

You could try honey instead – but it could end up being too sweet.

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this
site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that
“perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet
explorer. Superb Blog!
