Apricot Coconut Balls

Serves: 8

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great start to your week yesterday! I followed up with my doctor last night and things are looking better than expected! I am really excited! I will be taking the rest of the week off from cardio just to ensure that I am 100% healed before I ‘hit the ground “running” again’ :) Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Can you believe that Christmas is 1 week from today? I am still shocked. I have so much to do! I haven’t wrapped a single present yet. Plus, I have to figure out which dessert recipes I will be baking! I know these delicious, super easy cookie balls will definitely be on my list! What is on your baking list?

These little fruit bites are the perfect pack and go snack! They have the sweetness from the apricots and coconut that is sure to help kick that sugar craving….the healthy way! I ate mine as an afternoon snack with some greek yogurt! So delicious! You can swap the fruit to whatever your favorite flavor!
