Apricot Banana Chews
yields 1-1/2 dozen medium cookies
1/2 cup dried banana (I recommend the organic raw barnana brand)
1 cup dried apricots
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (I use reduced fat organic coconut)
1 heaping tablespoon orange zest
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice
1. Food-process the banana, apricot, coconut, zest and juices.
|dried Barnana--nothing but pure organic banana|
|make sure your dried apricots are simply dried apricots; nothing added!|
|Fresh grapefruit is a prefect tangy contribution, or simply use lemon and orange|
Add a little more water or lemon juice if needed. Mixture should stick together slightly.
2. Roll into little balls and flatten slightly. Roll in additional coconut if desired. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
