No-Bake Apricot Cashew Coconut Bites (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

No-Bake Apricot Cashew Coconut Bites (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

I was so excited to come up with these little things. They are light and delicious; they kind of taste like oatmeal cookies but without the oats. My son is crazy about them.

To make these, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 Dates (Pits removed)
  • 1/2 cup Dried Apricots ((About 16 apricots))
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Cashews
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Coconut (Unsweetened)
  • 3 tbsp Collagen Powder (Unflavored)
  1. First you'll want to start by combining all ingredients except for the collagen powder in a food processor.
    (Adding the collagen with the other ingredients can make a big mess because the powder flies everywhere.)
  2. Once these ingredients are mixed, they will look very crumbly. Don't worry- this is normal.
  3. Next, you'll want to mix in the collagen powder using a spoon or spatula. Then mix with the food processor again.
  4. Once you get everything mixed together,  dump the mixture on a piece of parchment paper (a cutting board works too).
  5. Using your hands, press the crumbs together tightly forming a ball.
  6. Press the ball down on the parchment paper and form a square that is about 8x8 inches and 1/2-1 inch thick. Slice into 16 squares.

I divided these up into sets of 4 and placed them in snack bags in the fridge. They're pretty filling so you may feel less is needed for a serving. I've noticed that my kids usually only eat 2 or 3 of them.

If you prefer to have these in bar form, this recipe makes 4 good-sized bars.

I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think.
