Main Ingredients

  •  1.5 cups organic dried apricots
  • ½ cup shredded , dessicated or flaked organic coconut
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (any colour)
  • ½ cup goji berries
  • ½ cup raw almonds with skin or for more crunch, use roasted almonds

IN SEASON- Apricots are in season between October and March in Australia.

BENEFITS OF APRICOTS- Apricots are a powderhouse of nutrition in a tiny bundle!  This amazing little fruit  is rich in vitamin C and A (beta- carotine) and a good source of fibre.  Due to their cobalt,  copper  and non- heme iron content, apricots are also good to support healthy blood production and prevent anemia. Apricots’ potassium, magnesium and calcium also make them great for bone health.
