This is a set and forget recipe until the morning when you want to tuck in.  Make sure when getting your dried fruit that you get preservative-free.  The apricots will look brown but that’s because they haven’t had sulphites added to them to make them orange.  Sulphites can contribute to a number of health issues, including severe respiratory issues.

This recipe is exclusive to our cookbook Everyday Additive-Free available from the Additive-Free Lifestyle Shop.

Everyday Additive-Free is a 320-page book filled with over 150 simple, tasty and budget-conscious recipes together with exclusive scientific information discussing additives and their effects on your health.

There are also stacks of allergy-friendly options too.  It is as a physical book, eBook or as a book and eBook bundle
