This no bake energy slice recipe makes the perfect postpartum snack.
I feel like every recipe includes Dates right now and while they are yummy, I like to swap out Dates for either Prunes or Dried Apricots in many recipes because they are lower in sugar and also, variety is good!
Try this no bake energy slice recipe if you have a bag of dried apricots hanging around in the back of the cupboard/fridge like I did.
I always opt for the preservative free apricots - they will appear dark brown instead of bright orange but taste just as good I promise!
I actually like to eat this no bake energy slice with some natural yoghurt as it's a great little breakfast bar as well as postpartum snack.
1 cup preservative free dried apricots
1/2 cup water
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sultanas
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup cashews
1 tbsp cacao
Blend the dried apricots and water into a paste.***
Add all other ingredients to the apricot paste in a bowl and mix well.
Spread mixture into a small baking paper lined tray.
Put into the fridge over night (or for at least a few hours - it needs this time to all become one).
Slice into 12ish pieces.
***NOTE - You will need a powerful blender to blitz the apricots. Soaking for a few hours before can help to soften them.
