Often store bought balls are full of preservatives and extra sugar, these quick and easy Apricot Bliss Balls use none of that and will have you licking your fingers.

1 tbsp coconut oil

A Healthy Mum Nutritional Tip:
It’s really important to source “sulpha free” (E220 or 220) dried fruit, especially apricots. They won’t be the typical bright orange you’re used to, they’ll be darker brown in colour and also a bit firmer. Reason being, sulpha use has been linked to asthma, irritability, mood swings and many behavioural problems, so please stay away.
