Apricot Biscuits

by Collette White | January 20, 2017

Good Morning friends! Happy Friday! I hope this finds you all well.

We are enjoying the School Holidays. We have had a few beautiful and warm days here in Tasmania and we have been taking advantage of them and doing some sight seeing and beach trips. You can check out some photos on Instagram! (I LOVE photos!)

We have also been doing plenty of baking on days that are not as nice, a little recipe creating and stocking the freezer a little getting ready for back to school. I bought some beautiful additive free Apricots the other day from my local Bulk Wholefoods Shop, Unpacked,and made these gorgeous little biscuits with them. I am pleased that I took a photo instantly as they were gone in two days … no kidding, my kids loved them (and trust me they are my biggest critics!) I hope you and your family love them too!

Ingredients

200g dried apricots *

½ cup desiccated coconut (45g)

½ cup brown rice flour (80g)

1 egg

1 heaped tspn peanut or almond butter (20g) – optional

½ tspn vanilla powder *

pinch salt

Method

Preheat oven to 180c and line two large trays with baking paper.

Place the apricots and coconut into a food processer and blitz on medium speed until combined. Then scrape down the sides.

TMX: Speed 7 / 20 seconds.

Add the remaining ingredients and blitz again on medium speed for 30-60 seconds or until thoroughly combined.

TMX: Speed 4 / 30 seconds.

Roll heaped teaspoon sized balls and place them on the tray. Flatten slightly using a fork.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.

Notes

  • Remember that dried apricots which are free from additives are actually brown in colour and NOT bright orange
  • If you don’t have vanilla powder you can swap this for 1 tspn vanilla essence

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
