Another thing that’s great about making this healthy no bake recipe is that the directions are so simple. Start by combining the dried apricots, salt, and honey in your food processor. Make sure to sprinkle the salt around when adding it in. This way ensures it’s evenly distributed and not stuck in one spot. 

Next, blend on high until you create a sticky chopped up texture. Then use a large spoon to scoop the processed apricots into a medium to large mixing bowl. Add the chia seeds and quick oats to the bowl and mix/fold until ingredients are eventually distributed. 

Lastly add the dried cranberries into the mixing bowl and mix/fold until ingredients are evenly distributed. Manually roll the protein balls with oatmeal recipe mixture into 8-12 evenly sized balls. Serve them immediately or store in the refrigerator in a seal tight container.
