Apricot, Coconut and Muesli Balls

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I’ve been making a few bite sized balls lately for the kids lunch boxes, they are a great healthy snack.  My Miss 12 wanted something a little different than the apricot balls I have been making lately. Looking through the pantry I had some muesli that I wanted to use up which added a nice little crunch to these balls.

The Apricot, Coconut & Muesli Balls are a great light and healthy bite sized snacks, perfect for the kids luncbhoxes.

I used apricots, but you could replace these with dried apples or dates, this recipe is so versatile.

A lovely flavour combination Kat! I bet you could use coconut oil too which would add a nice flavour 🙂

Bron, you could use sultanas, dates, dried pineapple or paw paw pieces would be nice too.
