Description

Lush, delicate melt-in-your-mouth apricot slices with a soft maple oatmeal cookie crust. Perfect grab and go snack. Vegan, gluten-free, no refined sugar.


Ingredients

Cookie Base:

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free quick oats
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Filling:

  • 300 gr / 10.6 oz firm silken tofu
  • 284 gr / 10 oz fruit-sweetened thick apricot jam (I used 1 jar of St. Dalfour, though any fruit-sweetened brand will do)
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Process all cookie base ingredients into a sticky fine-crumb consistency (note:if the mixture seems a bit too dry, add another tbsp water, if too wet, adjust by adding a few more tbsp oats). Transfer this mixture into a parchment lined 7″ x 5″ tupperware container (or any dish of a similar size). Press down into a thin flat crust along the bottom. Freeze while working on the next step.
  2. Blend all filling ingredients into a smooth consistency. Pour over the crust. Freeze overnight or for at least 6 hours to allow the mixture to set.
  3. When ready to eat, cut into slices and enjoy! Keep leftovers frozen (they melt quickly!).
