If you’ve been on a themed recipe kick as of late, so that’s one of the reasons for all of my recent “in a jar” style recipes. I’ve just been totally obsessed with them this year! Not only do the decorated jars just look super cool, my friends and family all love them so I already know what to get them for special occasions. This time, I’ll be making apricot energy balls that are perfect little calorie bites when cravings hit.
You’ll be using a handful of wholesome ingredients like almond flour, flax meal, almonds, chia seeds, finely shredded coconut, and of course, a dried apricot. When you put them all together, you end up with one ridiculously yummy energy ball mix that is even paleo-friendly as well!
