Forget the almond extract! it was WAY TOO STRONG. i made it a second time with out it and it turned out perfect. my mother wanted to add some sweetener - honey or sweetened condensed milk is good. also, best rolled in coconut dust (throw unsweetened coconut in a processor) the sweetened shredded kind doesn't stick real well. truly though, i love raw food recipes and this one was great - even my 2-yearold loved it!

Absolutely love this recipe flavour is great I used vanilla extract instead of almond & mixed the coconut in as it didnt stick very well when rolled. Very healthy snack with no flour sugar or dairy. Although Apricots are high in sugar. I guess we could use any dried fruit. Wonderful thanks
