Apricot & Date Breakfast Slice Recipe

This slice guys! I want to tell you that it’s totally healthy, but I’m thinking the half a block of butter probably doesn’t agree with me, but it IS so super delicious. I love dried fruits, so it’s heaven to me. It’s got the crunch, the sweetness and then the chew. SO GOOD!

Apricot & Date Breakfast Slice Recipe


125 g butter

1/2 cup dates, chopped

2 tbsp honey

1 cup cornflakes

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup self-raising flour

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped



  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Line a slice tray {mine is 18 x 28cm in size} with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter, dates and honey into a small saucepan, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Take off the heat and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, place the cornflakes, oats, coconut, flour, sugar and apricots. Mix to combine. Add the butter mixture, and stir until combined.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared tray, and bake for 20 minutes. Once cooked, allow to cool in the pan. Cut into squares.
