  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined. The mixture should stick together if you press it between your fingers. If it doesn’t hold together, add 1-2 tablespoons of water and process again. If needed, add more water until the desired consistency is reached.

  3. Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into balls using damp hands and place on the lined tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.

  4. To serve, roll the apricot energy bites through some extra coconut to coat. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!

  5. These snacks are perfect to make ahead of the 12-Week Challenge, starting January 15th. There's still time to join, simply download the SWEAT app to get started!
