Paleo Fruit Bites – three ingredient wonder

20130925-182101.jpg

I love making snacks that take two seconds, don’t require an oven and are gobbled up by the kids. These ones are great as they are nut free so good for the kids where nuts are banned, such as kindy or school. It’s also good when you have one kid who loves dried apricots but not sultanas and one who likes sultanas but not apricots. Ha ha, fooled them!

They also taste just like the fruit bites you buy from the shops but with only three ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

. 2 cups coconut
. 1/2 cup dried apricots
. 1/2 cup raisins
. Splash vanilla, if moisture is needed

METHOD

Simply place all ingredients into your food processor and allow to mix together for quite some time. I think I let it whirl for almost 5 minutes to allow the release of all the coconut oil and pulverisation of the fruit. I added a handful more raisins as they were a bit dry and a splash of vanilla to moisten the mixture and then pressed into a loaf tin lined with baking paper.

After allowing it to set in the fridge I cut it into small pieces.

I made these two days ago and there are none left! They made great treats for kids lunch boxes.

  1. Thank you for the wonderful recipe for the three ingedrient wonder paleo fruit snack with coconut and apricot! I was just wandering whether the coconut needs to be fresh, or whether dried and grated coconut will do as well?
