Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- Place the cashews and almonds in your food processor/blender and pulse until crumbly, you want there to still be a few bigger chunks to give the bites some nice texture.
- Add the dates and apricots then process until the mixture starts to come together into a sticky, loose "dough."
- Add vanilla and almond extract along with a good pinch of salt and process again until combined.
- Using your hands, roll approx 1 heaping teaspoon of dough into little bite size balls then set aside
- Place your coconut into a small bowl (or even just a zip lock bag) then gently roll your bliss bites in the coconut gently but firmly pressing to make sure to coconut sticks to your bite.
- Once your bites have a delicious little coconut coating, transfer directly to your mouth an airtight container (or even just a ziplock bag) and store in the fridge
