Author Notes: These little fruit and nut bites make an excellent snack or breakfast-on-the-go, if you must have breakfast on the go. They're kind of like Larabars, except round.fiveandspice

Makes 16 to 18

  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup toasted pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup toasted, shredded coconut (or toasted sesame seeds) for rolling
  1. Combine the apricots, cherries, pistachios, honey (or syrup), and lemon zest in a food processor. Pulse/run the processor until everything is very finely chopped together but not turned into a paste -- it takes a minute or so.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment, then roll a tablespoonful of the mixture at a time into balls and roll the balls in the coconut (or sesame seeds) to coat and place them on the baking sheet. Put the finished bites into the fridge to firm up for an hour
  3. Then, eat immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

i made these with organic dried fruit from trader joe's but substituted cranberries for cherries. i was sold when i saw they were rolled in dried coconut and they'll be going on the camping trip next weekend. a great to-go food with lots of substance.
