These little jewels remind me of macaroons with the nut butter poking out the side! They are so simple to make and full of fibre, potassium, vitamins A and E, while also being free of gluten, sesame and dairy.
They are perfect little energy boosters and great for strengthening your immune system, too! Make up a plate in the morning for an easy to eat snack during the day for you and also your baby during stage 2 weaning.
6 sulphur free dried apricots (or any dried apricots will do)
6 1⁄2 tsp of your favourite nut butter (try almond, pistachio or hazelnut)
- Carefully slice the apricot to remove the stone (if there is one).
- Put the nut butter in the space left by the stone and pop on the plate.
- Repeat with the remaining apricots, mixing it up by using other nut butters if you like.
- If you want to serve these to a friend, try rolling the exposed nut butter in chopped nuts to make them look fancy.
