No Bake Banana Apricot Balls

To be honest with you, I have never been a huge fan of the apricot.
I am a fan of the banana though.

No Sugar Added Banana Apricot Balls



No Sugar Added Banana Apricot Balls
My mother in law loved apricots.
I could never figure out why she loved them so much until I learned about what is in an apricot.


Who knew that apricots are an amazing source for Vitamin A?


Apricots also have a bit of Vitamin C in them.



If you were to eat one cup of apricots, you would consume around 80 calories, nearly 2/3rd's of the Vitamin A that you need for the day, and a quarter of the Vitamin C you need.

Apricots come with about 15 grams of sugar per cup. This is the natural sugar that many of us can eat in moderation.
Bananas come with about 14 grams of their own sugar.

I use sugar free honey or syrup for my Banana Apricot Balls

You are welcome to use regular honey or maple syrup. I am just trying to keep my sugar down. While this recipe has no added sugar, it is not sugar free. There is just sugar that is added from the apricots and bananas.


I never thought about the taste that would come out of combining apricots and bananas.

When you combine them in a ball, bananas and apricots taste pretty good together. This combination makes for a healthy snack that has some impressive nutrients.


The Recipe



What you will need to make this.

I make mine low sugar.

  • Apricots- 1 Cup dried and cut into small chunks
  • Bananas- 2 soft
  • Rolled oats- 2 cups
  • Coconut Flakes- 3/4 cup
  • Vanilla- 1 tsp
  • Coconut Oil- 1/4 cup
  • Honey or syrup- (can use sugar free or regular)- 2 tablespoons


How to make this.


You will need a food processor for this. If needed, you can do this by hand.

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor or bowl.
  • Mix together until well mixed.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 1/2 hours.
  • Roll each ball about 1 1/2-2" balls.
  • Set on a parchment covered cookies sheet.
  • If desired, you can roll each ball in additional coconut or chopped nuts for a covering.
  • Refrigerate for a half hour and then serve.
