This no-bake Apricot slice is incredibly easy. You only need 3 ingredients to make it!
Weetbix is the base of this recipe. Over the past couple of weeks I have been reacquainting myself with good old fashioned Weetbix, Weetabix if you are in the UK, or Wheat Biscuits if you are buying generic brands (which is totally fine by me).
When I say reacquainting myself I don't mean from a breakfast perspective, Weetbix is a regular staple at our house, but I have been trying to use it more in my recipes.
Why more Weetbix recipes?
Because it is cheap, accessible and such a kid favourite!
This no-bake apricot Weetbix slice is my second Weetbix recipe on my site. The no-bake chocolate weetbix slice was such a favourite with my readers I've decided to add another!
This one is even easier with only 3 ingredients. Yep only 3 ingredients, Weetbix, Cashews, and Dried Apricots, and boom you can make no-bake apricot slice!
Apricot Balls or Apricot Slice
A little hint with this recipe, I tend to make it into a slice.. but it works just as well as an apricot bliss ball or energy bite.
Instead of pressing the mixture into a slice tin, just roll the apricot weetbix mix into balls and refrigerate.
You could also roll the balls in a little desiccated coconut if you wanted to. But it's not necessary.
Weetbix & Weetabix Recipes
As I mentioned above most kiwi and Aussie households will have a box of Weetbix lurking in the pantry. Because Weetbix is such an accessible ingredient for so many of my readers I have ended up with quite a collection of Weetbix Recipes on my blog.
If a no-bake slice is your thing, my CHOCOLATE WEETBIX SLICE recipe is also very easy and popular with my kids.
I made my no-bake apricot weetbix slice in my brand new red racing machine of a food processor. I was very lucky to be given this food processor by Magimix New Zealand.
I have had Magimix food processor for 15 yrs, I was given my first as an engagement present it still runs beautifully but was looking a bit shabby for my videos and photos. So I am so pleased to have a new one. A big thank you to Magimix for making this possible.

I prefer roasted nuts in this recipe as I find the flavour better, but it will work with unroasted nuts too.
If your food processor is not really very robust try soaking the dried apricots in warm water then draining well before making the recipe. Most food processors should handle it fine though
This mix can be made into balls rather than a slice
To make this recipe nut-free, cashews can be substituted with sunflower seeds, gluten-free weetbix can be used for a wheat and gluten free alternative
