Apricot Slice

Apricot Slice

Made with only 4 ingredients this gluten free, dairy free treat is super easy to make – assuming you have access to a food processor.

I decided to make this for my five year old’s birthday party recently because it is a raw food delight and would ensure that almost everyone invited to the party would be able to enjoy something sweet. This recipe is gluten free, egg free and dairy free, contains no rice or soy ingredients and is vegan – that covered all the food allergy, intolerances and preferences of the guests that I knew were planning to come to the party.

Of course this apricot slice is really simple to make if you have a food processor handy but feel free to chop and dice the apricots/dates by hand or using some other kitchen gadget that can cut them up into a fine dice.

Feel free to change it up by substituting some or all of the dried fruit with others such as cranberries. Other ground nuts could also be used in place of ground almonds too – walnut meal works well.
