I'm on a bit of a health kick at the moment - trying to curb a few bad snacking habits and get myself ready for Summer! I still love baking though and have been making a few things for Jaron and the kids to eat but recently came across this healthy recipe for Oat & Apricot slice that I can enjoy too! It is really filling, full of lots of good for you ingredients and great for breakfast or lunch on the run with a piece of fruit or tub of yoghurt. Of course, making them is a breeze in the Thermo - if you don't have a Thermo, just combine everything in a bowl with a wooden spoon!
(P.S. If you have any favourite healthy baking or snacking recipes or ideas - send them my way!)
