(Paleo) Toasted Coconut-Almond-Apricot Balls (Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Refined sugar-free)

Toasted Coconut Almond Apricot Energy BallsWell, here it is: my first official “Paleo” recipe.  I’m taking advantage of the short but sweet early-summer apricot season to make these naturally fruit-sweetened and full of fiber (although I’m actually using dried apricots in this recipe so you can enjoy these scrumptious balls any time of year).  And since it seems like the healthiest thing you can do these days is attempt to eat, sleep and breathe coconut, I’ve got not just toasted coconut but also coconut flour in this recipe.  Stick it all together with some delectable creamy almond butter and you’ve got a winning combination.  I’m sure Paleolithic Man would scarf a few (or more) of these before mastadon hunting.  Hopefully your pursuits aren’t as perilous, but this is a healthy fuel source all the same!
