These snack bars are naturally sweetened, making them great for sustained energy throughout the day. This recipe uses almond meal, but ground seeds would also work well. You could also roll the mixture into bite-sized balls, making them a little more enjoyable for the kids.

Makes about 9 

150g (1½ cups) almond meal
180g (1 cup) dried apricots
60g (1 cup) shredded coconut
Juice of 1 lemon

1. Simply place all the ingredients in a food processor and whiz until mixture starts to come together.

2. Line a small tray with baking paper, and press mixture in evenly. Place in fridge to set for a few hours, then slice into bars.

3. These bars are best kept in the fridge. They will keep in an airtight container for up to one week.
