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).
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
Whizz up the apricots in a food processor or Thermomix.
Thermomix: Slowly turn to 7 for 6 seconds
Add remainding ingredients to Thermomix or food processor and mix until combined.
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.
