Nutty apricot slice

Hope your week has been all well and lovely so far, we've had my mum staying for a few days so we've been out and about and keeping busy and the children have had a great time pestering granma :). It's still blowing a gale here, which really is good weather to stay indoors, and sow seeds, and good weather to bake. Which is what we've been doing, and plan on doing this afternoon. So incase you're having the same blustery and rainy weather as us, you might want to try this slice recipe, which I promised last week I'd share with you. It's full of good things to fill little tummies, (and bigger tummies too of course).

Now the funny thing about this recipe is I have no idea where it came from. And this is funny because, it was all written out nicely, by me, and in my new(ish) recipe box. Which is funny because it's the recipe box that I am filling with my tried and true and favourite recipies, and yet I have no memory of ever making or eating this slice before. But anyway, there it is, and it's good, so it will stay.

:: Nutty apricot slice ::

- 3 cups rolled oats
- 175g diced dried apricots
- 250g chopped chocolate (I actually left this out as I'd run out)
- 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 100g chopped almonds
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/4 cup rapadura sugar
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 150g butter

Mix oats, apricots, chocolate, seeds, almonds and coconut in a bowl.
Put sugar, peanut butter, honey and butter in a pot and heat on the stove top till melted.
Pour melted mixture into dry ingredients and stir well. Press into a lined tin and chill until firm. Slice into bars once chilled and set.

that slice sounds delicious and good for you to boot, I made some flatbreads last night they are so good, are you still going to post your recipe ? x

what amazing containers!!

yes! flatbread recipe to come :) Thought I'd forgotten to write it down but I found it today!
And yes Stace those containers really are great - they're from Aaron's mum, they're enamel so you can cook in them but they have plastic lids so you can store the food in them too - great for frozen meals.

That looks yum! will definately have to try it out ~ looks like the perfect thing to fill up Finley's ever-grazing tummy.

This looks delicious! And it's healthy too. :)

I love how you say 'slice'. I think if I ever get around to rewriting my recipes, I'll replace 'bar' with 'slice' every time. It just sounds so much better!

mmm, you had me at "apricot." ...no, at "crunchy peanut butter." ...no, at "coconut." okay every bit of this looks delicious.
