Apricot Almond Coconut Energy Bites
Apricot Almond Coconut Energy Bites are 4 ingredient apricot energy balls that make the perfect healthy snack after a workout or any time of day!
I’m all about finding healthy snacks to munch on during the day. I love KIND bars, trail mix, and energy bars mostly, but now it’s all about these energy balls!
I’ve seen tons of great energy bite recipes, but a lot of them contain dates. I’m not a huge date fan, which is why I went with dried apricots here.
Aren’t they so sunny and bright, too? 🙂
These are so apricot energy bites are healthy and delicious, and they couldn’t be simpler to make! You only need 4 ingredients and about 15 minutes (add one hour to chill the mixture before rolling for less mess).
These energy bites are vegan, raw, paleo, gluten free, and dairy free, so they fit almost any dietary restrictions.
They’re mildly sweet with a nutty, oat-y flavor, with coconut for texture and even more flavor. I love this flavor combination, and believe me, these little bites are addicting. So consider yourself warned.
Next time you have 15 minutes to spare and you want a healthy snack, get your blender or food processor out and get rolling!
These apricot energy bites are the perfect grab ‘n go snack that’ll leave you feeling energized and good about yourself.
And you gotta love that. 🙂

My favorite snacks:
Apricot Almond Coconut Energy Bites
- 1 cup dried apricots*
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cup whole almonds
- 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling
- Place the apricots, oats, and almonds in a blender or food processor and process until the mixture comes together and forms a paste.
- Place the mixture in a medium bowl. The mixture will be sticky, so chill in the refrigerator for about an hour until easier to roll.
- Place the coconut in a small bowl. Using a 1 1/2″ cookie scoop or tablespoon, roll into 1 1/2″ balls. Roll in the coconut, and store in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy!
- *I did not use unsulphured apricots as I preferred a more plump, moister dried apricot.
- *I used unsweetened finely shredded coconut, which may be found in the health section of your supermarket, but you may use whatever you have on hand!

Oh my gosh! Using apricots instead of dates is just brilliant, Marcie. These are SO sunny. They make me happy just looking at them. I bet eating them would make me very happy as well! 🙂
Thank you, Liz! I love my apricots, and the color never hurts! haha
I wonder why apricots are under-used? I’m crazy about them! Glad you agree, Carol. 🙂
Totally obsessed with Energy Bites right now and I love this twist on them!
Thank you, Julie! I love apricots so much I had to do this! 🙂
Can these be frozen?
I’ve never frozen them, Jasmin, but I’m thinking that they would not freeze well.
Hi! I’m thinking about making these for a week-long hiking trip, do they have to be kept in the fridge, or can they just come with me on my hike? All the other energy bite recipes I’ve seen require the bites to be kept in the fridge! Thanks.
Hi, Casey! I’ve never kept mine in the fridge –they will be perfect for your hiking trip!
Thank you, Michelle!
My second recipe of yours to try today. I have these in the fridge chilling now. I made the for someone DF,GF in our family. I think they will be delicious.
I hope you love these as much as I do Charlotte!
How do these work with fresh apricots?? We’ve been gifted a LARGE box of fresh apricots and I need something do with them, haha.
I’ve only tried this with dried so I wouldn’t recommend using fresh apricots. I do have a recipe for apricot jam however!
