Apricot, Coconut and Muesli Balls

These Apricot, Coconut and Museli Balls are a great healthy lunch box snack, which are easy and quick to make.

These Apricot, Coconut and Museli Balls are delicious! I’ve been making a few bite sized balls lately for the kids lunch boxes, they are a great healthy snack.  Looking through the pantry I had some muesli that I wanted to use up which added a nice little crunch to these balls.

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 🙂

Hello. Just wondering cam you freeze the apricot, coconut and muesli balls?

What could you use instead of apricots please?

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