Product Description

Dried apricots, or Prunus armenaica (for it spread across Europe from Armenia), make a healthy snack containing minimal sugar. They may be served separately or in various confectioneries, especially popular in Asia and Russia. These apricots have a peculiar tart taste — just enough to add charm to their flavor without drawing your mouth.

Dried apricots are not short of nutrients and beneficial qualities as compared to fresh apricots. Although they lose the water contained in them, the fruits still preserve other elements that make them an excellent detail in your diet, and are both delicious and wholesome. Moreover, due to the low level of moisture contained in them, such apricots are extremely easy to store.

Health Benefits

Apart from being a quaint treat, dried apricots provide you with a rich source of vitamins and elements for maintaining good health. Some of their beneficial effects and qualities are:

  • Improved digestion.
    Dietary fiber — namely, soluble fiber — contained in dried apricots allows your body to get rid of LDLs (low-density proteins) and stabilize your cholesterol level. If you consume the fruit regularly, you will improve the functioning of your intestine.
  • Stable blood pressure.
    Due to their high level of potassium, dried apricots benefit your blood pressure greatly, helping you avoid hypertension. Moreover, when combined with sodium, potassium allows you to regulate the balance of water in your cells and organs.
  • High level of antioxidants.
    Dried apricots are rich in antioxidant phytonutrients — for example, in carotenoids. These make the fruit particularly useful for maintaining cell growth and boosting your immune system. Apart from this, the apricots are extremely rich in vitamin A which is indispensable when it comes to taking care of your eyesight.
  • Abundant iron and silicon.
    These two elements that can be found in dried apricots make the fruit a valuable ingredient in your diet. The former is beneficial for the state of your blood and prevents anemia. However, the iron contained in dried fruit is known as non-heme, and is therefore more difficult to absorb, so it’s recommended to complement it with heme iron to achieve the best result. The latter element, silicon, is what improves the state of your skin and hair.

  3. Question

    Does it contain any preservative? because the color seems so golden that it almost likes dried apricots with sulfate. If it is sun-dried, it would be a better option.

    • These apricots may be treated with sulfur-containing compounds during processing. At this time we are looking for a better options on the market.

No Bake Apricot Tarts

No Bake Apricot Tarts

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup almond or cashew meal
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 10 dried apricots – http://bit.ly/20WjbtU
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter


Filling

  • 30 dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup water


Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 cup crust mixture
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar


Instructions

  1. Begin by prepping the crust. Place 10 dried apricots in a medium-size food processor, and process until finely chopped. Then, add in coconut oil and almond butter and process again. Finally, add in 1 cup of almond meal and 1 cup of oat flour and pulse until combined. You’ll want the mixture to be crumbly instead of doughy. Place mixture into a medium size bowl. Before you make your filling, remove about ½ cup of the crust mixture (for the topping) and set aside.
  2. To make the filling, place about 30 dried apricots into your food processor and process until they are finely chopped. Then, add in about ¼ cup of water and process until the mixture is paste-like and completely combined.
  3. There are many ways to assemble your raw tarts. You can use an 8×8-inch pan, a mini cupcake tin, special tartlet holders, etc.
  4. To assemble, make sure what ever surface you are using is lightly prepped with non-stick cooking spray (or lined with silicon liners). Then, use your fingers to press crust mixture into your surface about ½ inch thick.
  5. Spoon in apricot mixture, and use your spoon to press firmly on top of crust (1/2-inch thick).
  6. Finally, prep crumble topping by adding about 1 tablespoon of your favorite sugar (I used coconut sugar). Sprinkle on crumble topping and lightly press into apricot mixture.
  7. Place tarts into freezer for about an hour or the refrigerator for about 3 hours in order to firm up!

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa – http://bit.ly/1P3f4nj
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed & ½ cup water (3 flax eggs) – http://bit.ly/1N9uZmg
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy/almond milk
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots – http://bit.ly/20WjbtU


Instructions

  1. If you don’t have some cooked quinoa laying around, cook up a batch (a little under a cup of dry quinoa) and let it cool in the fridge.
  2. Make 3 flax eggs by combining the ground flaxseed with water and letting it sit for 15 minutes until you get an eggy consistency.
  3. Chop up your favorite dried fruit (I was craving apricots), and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large bowl, combine everything except for a small handful of the dried fruit. Give everything a big mix, especially if your almond butter isn’t spreadable (trick: heat it up in the microwave first!).
  5. Grease your baking pan with olive oil and dump the contents of the bowl into the pan. Top with your reserved dried fruit. I used a loaf pan (filled halfway) so that I would get plenty of crusty sides and a deeper volume for the oatmeal bake.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, checking starting around 20 minutes to ensure the middle is no longer ‘jiggly’ and that a crust has formed on top.

If you are using a shallower pan, reduce the baking time slightly and anticipate a thinner baked oatmeal. You could also easily double this recipe for a 9×9 or 8×8 pan, increasing the baking time. After letting the oatmeal sit and cool for a few minutes, slice into it and top with maple syrup, extra cinnamon, or yogurt.

Enjoy it!
