Apricot Treats

DESCRIPTION

Very SWEET! Almost, any dried fruit ball should be thought of as a treat or a desert. Try making your own so you can control the #’s. Remember, by using the least amount of fruit for flavor & increasing the protein powder & coconut oil the #’s will improve.
CAUTION: If fruits or sugars trigger cravings for you, do not add this

QUICK PREP HINTS:

Make extra and freeze! Try adding ground flax seed or psyllium husks for more fiber. These are very sweet and flavorful. Try decreasing the # of apricots used for even lower carbs!
