  1. For a crunchy topping, roll each ladoo in chopped pistachios. Enjoy!


  • Make sure your pistachios are as fresh as possible because they are the star of this recipe!
  • If you don't have a food processor, you can use a blender.
  • I prefer to pick my soft apricots carefully since they should be soft and help bind the mixture.
  • Remember to melt the coconut oil. The nuts and dried fruit will be easier to combine if you do so.
