This rustic gluten free apricot recipe dishes up “a slice of the gluten free good life” without the sugar bomb. This is a little bit more fiddly and time consuming than most of my recipes, but is well worth the effort. Trust me, snouts far and wide unanimously agree – this recipe is a stunner.
 The first time I tasted this delectable treat, it was made and served to me by an eight year old. So it is literally child’s play, and absolutely S’Blended! I will offer a disclaimer when enjoying this apricot delight: this recipe is so delicious; it can be a challenge stopping at one piece! **Read the whole recipe before starting. Start by soaking the apricots – they need an hour to soak. Then make the base and cook, and then the filling, and then the topping.


  1. 1Base- Cream the butter and sweetener in a stand mixer or electric beater.
  2. 2Add in the egg and vanilla, and beat well.
  3. 3Fold in the sifted flours and coconut and mix well.
  4. 4Spread mixture over base of shallow baking tin of about 30cm by 25cm /12 inches by 10 inches, and bake in moderate hot oven 190C/375 for 10 mins.
  5. 5Filling–Place the apricots in the water and stand for 1 hour.
  6. 6Put apricots and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  7. 7Reduce heat and simmer for 10 mins.
  8. 8Add in sweeteners and butter. Simmer uncovered for about 10 mins.
  9. 9Allow To Cool – Blend until smooth. Gently beat your egg and fold.
  10. 10Topping–Put rolled oats and coconut into food processor and add in juice and butter and pulse just a few times in order to get a rustic consistency.
  11. 11Bake in oven at 190 C / 375 F for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to 180 C / 350 and cook for a further 15-30 minutes until golden brown.
  12. 12Let stand to completely cool and it will harden slightly, making it easier to cut.
  13. 13Serve with vegan cream or ice cream, or just on its own. Who cares. This is YUM!
