These Apricot and Date Balls are one of the first snacks that we made when first started Just One Bite At A Time. It’s become one of our go to snacks and they are super easy to make when you’re in a hurry. (Prob’s only 15 mins total time).
Made from dried fruit and a total of 5 ingredients. These little mini snacks are perfect when you may be feeling that you need a little something to keep you going till your next meal, but without added sugar.
Oh and our friends and family love them too. Make sure you give them a try and let us know how you go.
