Acacia Honey Dried Apricots

The perfect no-bake snack!

Summertime is here, there’s no doubt about it. When it gets this hot outside, the last thing I want to do is spend my time in a scorching kitchen. So instead of toiling away this week to create a recipe that requires baking, I decided to take the easy road with a no-bake snack.

Dried apricots make me think of summer and topping them with equally summery ingredients was a no-brainer. I chose goat cheese (my favorite!), mint leaves, and Savannah Bee’s Acacia honey. Since mint has taken over my herb garden, I knew I’d need to find recipes that can keep up with my overzealous supply.

Apricots are high in Potassium and Vitamin A!

I selected Acacia honey because it has such a light, clean flavor and won’t compete with the apricots’ sugary taste. I also love the way the Acacia honey is nearly invisible when drizzled over the top of these dainty morsels.

Next time you’re hit with the urge to snack, whip up a batch of these bad boys.

What You’ll Need:

  • Choose from other Savannah Bee honeys like Tupelo, Wildflower or Orange Blossom until you find the one that fits your fancy!

    This is a great recipe. I also tried it with the Tupelo honey and Sourwood honey. Acacia honey is one of my favorites but something about the apricot and sourwood worked really well.
