Apricot oat coconut slice

Today, afternoon tea on our Winter menu is a quick and easy apricot oat coconut slice. We know your children are going to love it so we have tracked down the recipe and adapted it to make ten serves.

Not only is this delicious snack quick to prepare thanks to its minimal cooking time, the recipe can also be made into Bliss Balls for a slightly different approach. However, the key part of this dish we like most is the fact it’s also a vegan friendly recipe so can fit into being served to a broader range of dietary requirements.

Ingredients:

  • 85g dried apricots 

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • 1 tbs pumpkin seeds 

  • 2 ½ tsp pure maple syrup

  • ⅛ cup grated or dessicated coconut

  • 2 tsp pure olive oil

Method:

  1. Blend all dry ingredients in a food processor until crumbly

  2. Add liquids and combine

  3. Press into a baking paper lined tray and bake at 160-170 degrees celsius until the edges start to brown 

  4. Cool down before cutting
