Combine almonds, steel cut oats, and apricots in food processor.  Chop until everything is in small bits.  Change to kneading blade and add all liquids and protein powder. Mix until ingredients change to a firm consistency.  Chill in refrigerator for 3 hours.  

Once the ingredients are cold and less sticky, use a measuring teaspoon to scoop individual portions and roll them each into a ball.
