I recently purchased a large bag of dried organic apricots. I try and avoid eating a lot of dried fruit generally but I like to give Gracie a couple of them throughout the week as apricots are actually a good source of calcium, so they’re great for a little boost.
If you buy organic apricots, you’ll notice that the colour is much darker, this is because they have been dried naturally without using the preservative Sulphur Dioxide.
I came up with the idea of making these bites as everyone one I saw had something in it that Miss Gracie couldn’t eat, so I decided to make our own.
These are super easy to make and a great one for getting the kids involved, enjoy!
