    thanks for the recipe but I felt I needed to say my balls were so dry they didn’t stay together until I put some coconut oil and a little bit of maple syrup which was not what I was wanting as its so sweet. I am not sure why it was so dry. I did follow the recipe.

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for trying this recipe, Simone!
      Yes, that has happened to me too (dry apricot balls).
      This happens if the fruit (apricot and raisins) is too dry. The mixture doesn’t bind well and feels crumbly. A tablespoon of coconut oil added to the mixture solves the issue. 🙂

    Hi Can i put them in the freezer??

  3. Reb says:

  4. Mon says:

    Hi, can I ask whether the almonds are raw? Thank you

  5. sushila.rajan. says:

    Should we roast the flax seeds?Nice recipe.

  6. Shirley says:

    Do you think I could make these with frozen apricots? If so, what could I use to dry the batter up?

    • Ruchi says:

      Shirley, frozen apricots needs to be dried for this recipe. That’s a long process. For that spread frozen apricots in a single layer on a baking tray and place it in an oven. Set the oven temperature to 200 degree F and let it dry for 6-8 hours.
      I would suggest please use dried apricots for this recipe and save frozen apricots for smoothies and shakes. 🙂

  7. Ruth says:

    When using the raisins in the recipe, do you pulse them in the food processor or mix them in whole at the end?

    • Ruchi says:

      Ruth, as mentioned in the post raisins were added later to the mix to adjust the sweetness. But feel free to pulse them along with rest of the ingredients. Thanks!

  8. Pranathi says:

    Hi

    I really loved the recipe

  9. Laura says:

    I see raisins as an ingredient however they’re not in any of the photos … did you make it with raisins truly? Seems like it may throw the taste off a bit. However, they look amazing and like they will help me get over any humps in my new sugar-less lifestyle. =)

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for stopping by Laura!
      Yes, raisins are not shown in the pictures as they were added in the last to adjust sweetness (that’s mentioned above in the post). Overall, they tasted good.

  10. Mom who loves food says:

    Nice recipe! You have provided me with a healthy base recipe, I can experiment and play around with the ingredients in the way I like. I make these often now at times with sunflower seeds and dates and sometimes with prunes, chia seeds and nuts.

    • Ruchi says:

      Love your ideas, sunflower seeds sounds like a yummy addition. Bet my readers will also find it very useful.
      Thanks for sharing it with me. 🙂

  11. Devo Kessin says:

    I omitted the flax seeds, and added some grape juice, and we had this as part of our Pesach seder charoset tasting plate. They were a HUGE hit, and everyone loved them. This will definitely become a standard for us.

    • Ruchi says:

      Glad to hear that Devo.
      Thanks for trying the recipe and for sharing your wonderful feedback with me. Appreciate that!

  12. Tinker says:

    These are fantastically healthy and I absolutely love them. However, saying that they are “sugar free” is very false. Apricots contain fructose which is a sugar. They may not have added sugar, but they do in fact have it. =) Thank you for the really great recipe.

    • Ruchi says:

      I second that thought. It’s mentioned in the post that no sugar is added to these bites and they are sugar-free. Was meaning to write no added sugar but wrote “sugar-free”. Thanks for pointing that out, will fix that.
      Also, thanks for trying the recipe Tinker. 🙂
