Nutritional Facts

1 piece: 86 calories, 5g fat (0 saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 15mg sodium, 10g carbohydrate (7g sugars, 2g fiber), 2g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 fat, 1/2 starch.


  1. Place 1-1/4 cups almonds in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Remove almonds to a shallow bowl; reserve for coating.
  2. Add remaining 2-1/2 cups almonds to food processor; pulse until finely chopped. While processing, gradually add extract and honey. Remove to a large bowl; stir in apricots and cherries. Divide mixture into six portions; shape each into a 1/2-in.-thick roll. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Unwrap and cut rolls into 1-1/2-in. pieces. Roll half of the pieces in reserved almonds, pressing gently to help nuts adhere. Roll remaining half in pistachios. Store bites between waxed paper in airtight containers. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Health Tip: Per ounce, almonds contain more fiber and protein that any other tree nut.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
