You can make these bites into balls, but when I origianlly made these I was in a hurry and just pressed the mixture into a loaf pan, left in fridge for 30 minutes and sliced up into bite sized pieces within seconds. But if you have time you could roll into balls too!

HEALTHY COCONUT LEMON BALLS – Sometimes it’s hard to find something different to add to the kids lunch boxes, they have their usual sandwich, a piece of fruit, vegetables sticks and some baking, but there are days where they want something a little more and I am loving the ‘balls’ that I have been making lately. Not only are they great to have on hand as a quick snack, they have been a great filler to the kids lunchbox too.

APRICOT BALLS – Over the years I have purchased the yummy little fruit bites from the healthy food section at the supermarket to include in the kids lunchboxes.  But looking more closely I’ve realised they are filled with so much sugar, coated in sugar in fact.  We are on a mission to eat healthier and this is certainly one product I could make myself, being a healthier option for the kids and their lunchboxes.
