  • 1 cup granola (without nuts if possible)
  • 1 1/2 cups dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted and slightly cooled)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Place the granola into a blender or food processor. Blend until well chopped.
  • Add the apricots, oil, and sweetener to the food processor and grind on high for 30-60 seconds. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. As it starts to form a cookie dough-like batter, use the "pulse" button to continue grinding. It's ready when it looks like a batter and you can easily form into a ball.
  • Place the coconut into a bowl and portion out 1-tablespoon balls of the batter. Roll in your hand, then roll in the coconut. Place on a plate and repeat to finish the batch.
  • Chill in the fridge to firm up for about 15 minutes If desired. Serve.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 weeks.
  • Serve in mini paper cupcake liners if you'd like.
  • I like to use a granola without big whole nuts since it's a little easier to grind up into the batter. Try my Applesauce Granola or any without big whole nuts.
  • The batter takes a minute or two to come together in the food processor so try to have a little patience with that step. You'll know it's ready when it starts to look like a batter and you can easily form it into a ball with your fingers.
