White Chocolate Apricot Granola Balls


I admit I've been a tad bit obsessed with granola balls lately. I've made these flavors:
Chocolate Chip Cookie

And I've actually made several other combinations. I make a batch of these just about every 3 days because our family loves them so much! I keep them in the freezer and eat them right out of it. My latest flavor combo involves some dried apricots. I love the bit of "tang" they give the granola ball and the flavor combination works quite nice!

Apricot White Chocolate Granola Balls
1-1/2 c. old fashioned quick cooking oats
1 c. unsalted cashews (or your favorite nut)
1 c. dried apricots
1/4 c. agave nectar (or pure maple syrup)
1 t. pure vanilla extract
1/4 to 1/2 c. white chocolate chips

1. In a food processor, grind the oats and nuts together until you get a flour consistency.

2. Add in the dried apricots and chocolate chips. Pulse until they are chopped up and well blended with the oat flour.

3. Add in the agave and vanilla. Mix well until a clumpy dough forms that you can easily shape into a ball without it falling apart. If it's not there yet, add more agave nectar, just a bit at a time

4. Shape into 1" balls and lay on a dish lined with wax paper. Freeze or refrigerate for a couple of hours. Enjoy!

Today's supposed to be the hottest day of the year here. I don't do very well in heat and have a ton of stuff to do on top of that. My boys take after me and get crabby in the heat too. Poor Rich! What about you? Do you prefer hot weather or are you a crank in it like me?

Mmm sounds yummy! As for the weather, I like spring weather the best. I cannot stand anything above 85, especially if humidity is involved!

I've seen so many of your recipes using agave nectar that I went and bought some (rather than using a substitute) Looking forward to trying these as they look really good.

I am a hot weather girl. Our temperatures in the summer are in the high nineties or low hundreds and I love it. This year however is wet and cold and I am not happy.....
