I’m loving these Organic Apricot Seed Bars. These bars are raw vegan, paleo friendly and free from grains, gluten, dairy, sugar, preservatives and additives, making them a fabulous addition to the school lunch box. They are also a yummy treat for the adults too! Try one of these if you’re feeling a little low on energy in the afternoon. Dried apricots are an excellent source of dietary fibre, potassium, iron and antioxidants.
I’ve been seeing a lot of ‘healthy’ fruit and nut bars in supermarkets and health food stores lately, and most of them only contain a few ingredients all blended up into easy to eat snacks on the go. Whilst this is a great idea, they are a little pricey and most of them aren’t organic, which means they may contain preservatives like sulphites. I’ve also noticed that most of these bars contain nuts, normally almonds, which means these can’t be taken to school. So this morning I decided to make up my own apricot flavoured bars that are quick and easy to make and don’t contain nuts, so my kids can take them to school and daycare in their lunch boxes.
Speaking of school lunch boxes, I feel like I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about school lunch box treats for my eldest son this past week. He starts Prep tomorrow and it’s a really exciting time for him and all of us. We’re so proud of what a big boy he’s becoming and I want to extend his excitement for school to his school lunches. When he opens up his lunch box each day, I want him to think, ‘Yum!’ I know this is a challenge, especially because his lunch box will contain different foods to most of his classmates, but I’m determined to do my best so he looks forward to lunch at school. I’m really confident that these Organic Apricot Seed Bars will be a hit!
Makes 8 large bars or 16 small bars
If you want to make more of these bars at once, then you can make a double batch and use a lamington tray to set them in the freezer. However, make sure that you only make one batch of these Organic Apricot Seed Bars at a time, as you do not want to overload your food processor.
