Little Drops of Sunshine
Yield: 24 sunshine drops


  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted, roasted cashews
  • 1/4 cup unsalted, roasted almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts or coconut for coating

Make It

1. In a food processor, pulse apricots and dates until coarsely chopped. Add coconut, flax seeds, 3 tablespoons water, and salt, and continue pulsing to blend. Add cashews and almonds until the mixture forms a ball. Place chopped nuts or coconut in a shallow, rimmed dish. With wet hands (to prevent sticking), roll the processed mixture into tablespoon-size balls, then roll the balls in the topping. Refrigerate for 45 minutes before serving.
