Apricot Truffles

I wanted to post a really simple recipe to get myself started again with blogging, so this one for now also comes without pictures – but I will be making them again so pictures will come soon!

These were in a copy of “Feel Good Food” magazine that Anthony’s mum gave me, I’ve not always liked apricots but couldn’t resist the idea of putting them together with almonds, also they are the first snack like this I’ve come across which don’t contain either coconut or peanut butter.  Don’t get me wrong, I love both, but sometimes its nice to use different things!

Apricot Truffles

100g (4oz) Almonds (soaked for 12 to 48 hours before hand)
50g (2oz) dried apricots
6-8 dates
Zest of one lemon
1tsp vanilla essence

  1. Process the almonds, apricots and dates in a food processor
  2. Add lemon zest and vanilla and blitz further
  3. Form the dough into small balls and chill in the fridge or freezer before serving

I’ve put mine in the freezer and they’ve stayed soft enough to eat, great to settle a sweet craving!
