I’m always on the look out for new snacks, slices and bites to put in lunchboxes that my little boy will love and will help keep his tummy full. Being very active and on the go all day  (typical boy) he needs a lot of fuel!

Why this Apricot Coconut Slice is so good…….

  • It requires only a few simple ingredients.
  • There is no baking involved, jut put in the freezer for 30 minutes and you are ready to go….
  • It tastes like a treat yet contains no refined sugar –  it only has 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup (your choice) throughout the whole slice.
  • It is filling! It contains protein and fibre from the almonds and desiccated coconut.

Additional Recipe Tips

  • I prefer to use honey in these bars as I like the flavour with the apricots but if you are Vegan then maple syrup will work well.
  • You can make this slice toddler friendly by cutting it into small squares.
  • If you are following a strict Paleo diet then look for organic apricots with no added sulphites, you should be able to find these online or at your local wholefoods store.
