petite kitchen: apricot & coconut snack bars

The lovely Eleanor Ozich of Petite Kitchen has put together the perfect picnic snack recipe for us to share with you and your little ones.

Apricot, coconut and lemon snack bars are incredibly simple and fast to prepare, and require no cooking. They are naturally sweetened, making them great for sustained energy throughout the day. The recipe uses ground almonds, but ground seeds would also work well. You could also roll the mixture in to bite size balls, making them a little more enjoyable for the kids.

You will need:

1 ½ cups ground almonds
1 cup dried apricots 
1 cup shredded coconut 
juice of one lemon

To prepare:

Simply place all of the ingredients in to a food processor, and process until the mixture starts to come together. Line a small tray with baking paper, and press the mixture in evenly. Place in the fridge to set for a couple of hours, and then slice into bars. Best kept in the fridge. 

Makes approximately 9 bars

Enjoy these picnic treats! nb xx
