Almond and Apricot Bites

Almond and Apricot Bites

A ‘lighter’ way of celebrating Diwali and these Apricot and nut bites make a change from sweet sugary treats where no cooking or heating of ingredients is required.

Makes approximately 12 pieces

1 cup almonds
1 cup raisins
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
10 dried apricots
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded or desiccated coconut
icing sugar for dusting (optional)


Place the almonds, raisins, and cinnamon in a food processor. Process thoroughly into a smooth, thick almond butter paste. This should take about three minutes or so. Turn off the food processor.
Add the chopped apricots and pulse for 30 seconds, and then add the coconut and pulse for another 10 seconds.
Using slightly wet hands, shape the mixture into 12 balls of equal size and place in small cases. Sprinkle with icing sugar if using, and serve. These can be stored in an airtight container for 4 days.
