  • 1 cup dried apricots whole
  • 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Almonds your favorite flavor
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey for vegan or lower FODMAP use maple syrup


  • Combine the apricots and almonds in a food processor or small blender and process/blend until the mixture is coarsely ground. You want this to be a little sticky but not a paste. If your food processor is small, make a half batch
  • In a medium bowl, stir in the almond butter and honey into the almond/apricot mixture. Stir to combine. You want the resulting mixture to be sticky and hold together when you roll it
  • Roll the almond/apricot mixture into balls about 1-inch in size
  • Store these in the fridge
  • If you want some more protein in these, add a 1-2 Tablespoons of your favorite protein powder and add a little more honey or maple syrup to make it all stick together
  • Enjoy!
