Add oats, apricots, coconut and cashews to a food processor and pulse several (~20) times until the mixture is crumbly but still has some texture. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
Whisk together the cashew butter, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl.
Pour the wet mixture over the dry and use a spatula (or your hands) to mix it together. Make sure that the dry mixture is completely coated. Let the mixture sit for 20-30 minutes.
Mix it one more time before forming balls. We used a cookie dough scoop to form them into about 2 tablespoon sized balls. Use your hands to roll into a compact ball.
Roll the balls in shredded coconut (optional). Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
