Ingredients

PULSE in food processor

  • 1 cup dried apricots (any kind), I use unsulfered turkish apricots.
  • 1 cup dates (any kind), I use deglet.
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut unsweetened is best
  • 1 Tbsp chia seed slightly ground, optional
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1/8 tsp salt optional

ADD to food processor

  • 2 Tbsp water

Instructions

  1. PLACE all ingredients, except water into food processor.

  2. PULSE OR grind until the fruit and nuts are the desired size.

  3. RUN food processor again and dribble water as needed, until mixture is moist enough to hold together when you squeeze it.

  4. POUR into a bowl and mix.
  5. FORM into desired size.
  6. STORE in refrigerator OR freezer. Keeps two weeks in refrigerator, or a couple months in freezer.

Recipe Notes

If you don’t like ginger, you can leave it out–but it’s worlds better with the ginger! If you don’t have fresh ginger, you can use a couple pieces of crystallized ginger, instead. It’ll give a slightly different flavor, but it’s still very nice! If your processor is small, it’s very easy to cut this recipe in half or even quarters!
