My kids are obsessed with apricots so they are all kinds of in love with this easy 2 Ingredient Apricot and Coconut Slice!
I first starting making this 2 Ingredient Apricot and Coconut Slice years ago when I was trying to recreate my favourite apricot bites that I used to LOVE when I was a kid. After sort of ‘forgetting’ about this recipe for a couple of years, I went back to it last year when the boys became obsessed with all things apricot, and they got a big thumbs up from both of the boys.
This Apricot Slice is best stored in the fridge/freezer (you could try this Apricot, Coconut and Oat Slice if you are looking for something which can be stored in the pantry), however they do hold up quite well to being stored in lunch boxes for a few hours and are a regular snack for us whenever we head out for the day. I also find a piece of this slice satisfies my after dinner sweet craving and it’s certainly better than eating chocolate!
When making this Apricot and Coconut Slice, it’s important to make sure you press the mixture firmly into your pan as this will help it set firmly and be easily cut into bars or slices. If you find it’s not holding well together (this can happen sometimes depending on the type of dried apricots you use, simply add a little extra coconut and blitz for a further 30 seconds until it starts to come together more.
