These are quick, easy and so delicious. I live on the other side of the world now and these so reminded me of Aussie health bars, we can not get anything like it here in Switzerland. My whole family loved them and I had to ask them not eat them all as I want to take a few to mum's so that they can all try them, I know they will absolutely love these. I made as is but found I needed quite a bit more coconut milk than stated but that is neither here nor there. A super recipe Jubes I will be hanging onto this one as it gives me a little taste of home that is so healthy too. :)

These were so yummy, a bit like an apricot health bar in taste. Very easy & very quick to make. I actually didnt have coconut milk but substituted by using Creamy Coconut Milk Recipe #26714 by mielhollinger, and they turned out fantastic. They didn't last long here, but I think (actually I know) I made the balls a little too big because I only got 20. DH would like them again to take to work and everyone loved them. Great recipe Jubes, and I will be making these again.
