Ingredients:

1 cup chopped dried apricots
1 cup sultanas
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tbsp. coarsely grated orange rind, preferably organic
1  1/2 cups shredded coconut
3/4 cup chopped raw pecans or walnuts

+ 1/2 cup shredded coconut

 

Directions:

  • Combine apricots, raisins, juice and orange rind in a small bowl.
  • Cover and let stand for 1 hour or up to 1 day.
  • In a food processor or blender, chop the mixture finely and mix in 1 1/2 cups of coconut and all the pecans or walnuts.
  • Form about 1 tablespoon of the mixture into balls, roll in remaining coconut.
  • Let stand on parchment paper to dry for 8 hours or overnight.

(Can be stored in airtight containers, each layer on parchment paper, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.)
