Method

  1. Purée apricots in a food processor with 150ml boiling water and the oats, then scrape the mixture into a bowl. Toast coconut, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds in a non-stick pan over a low heat, then stir into the apricots with the cranberries, hemp powder and chia seeds to make a thick paste.
  2. Roll into a long log on a sheet of cling film. Wrap tightly, chill, then slice thinly to serve. Will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks.

I made this, following the recipe to the T, but I just ended up with a squidgy paste which wouldn't set at all. I feel there is some sort of step missing here. If I was snaking this again I wouldn't add the oats to the puree and add after. And cook in a tin for about 20mins to try to help set.
