Apricot-Walnut Balls

If you are looking for a dessert made from fruits and nuts, the "Apricot-Walnut Balls" (page 444) will fill the bill.  Just five ingredients (dried apricots, walnuts, sugar, vanilla extract, and shredded coconut) are rolled into sweet confections that resemble little snow balls. You can also vary this recipe by using any combination of dried fruits and nuts, so there are endless possibilities. No cooking required, and quick to assemble.  These are quite rich, but I found eating just one satisfied my craving for sweets.  No changes were necessary to keep this within the McDougall guidelines.


  1. Simply sweets! I would love to try them and I'm pretty sure my family will like it too. Thanks! :)

  2. You're welcome! :) Let me know what you and your family think once you get a chance to try them!
