Recipe Directions

Mill the dry ingredients to a fine flour, then add the honey and oil to your processor and pulse till it holds together. Add a teaspoon of water here if required (or possibly start with soaked almonds?) Now knead with your hands till it forms a proper, stiff dough and the oil starts to be released. Done :) Refrigerate and shape to your pleasure.

The ones to the right in the picture were encased in my first ever version of bitter chocolate (grinding a small quantity of apricot kernels with the cacao beans) YUM.

The orange was also great – navels semi dehydrated till flavourful and juicy, and served in segments.

Mopoke's Thoughts

Delicious, sophisticated and authentic-tasting marzipan that is elevated to real heights by the simple addition of the apricot kernels. Please try it and judge for yourself.

The honey gives a toblerone decadence…vegans will have to use a substitute :(.

NB Apricot kernels contain “Amygdalin” (Vitamin B17) linked to long life and an anti cancer agent. The bitter ‘cyanide’ flavour is completely safe.

This recipe is amazingly tasty! I used coconut oil (because that's what I had!) and tupelo honey! So good - I will definitely be making this again! Thanks!

Hi Mopoke,

Great recipe! I just bought some Apricot Kernels after remembering your recipe, so I'll be trying it out this weekend (if not right now!)

I'm also from Perth, do you come to the raw food picnics?

This is pretty much the same as the recipe I came up with, except that I start with soaked almonds and use a tablespoon or so of ground flax to hold it all together :) I just made a batch tonight and thought I'd come post the recipe, but you already did it!

Hi gorb :). Yes u crack the kernels open with the pestle - or a nutcracker would work too. Where I live it's possible to buy the stones (in fact seeing them for sale in a health shop made me first investigate B17).

NB Taste the kernels before use and judge the recipe as you make it...it might be too strong for some tastes! Kernels are very bitter!

" 3 apricot kernels, extract from stone with mortar and pestle " ... by this do you mean crush three pit/kernels from fresh apricots?? I thought they would be super duper hard? Hmmm, I'll have to wait until next summer if I need fresh apricots...
