Aside from watermelons, apricots are also in season. They are available from early May to July. Apricots are the best during these months, so make sure to enjoy this fruit while they are freshly available in markets.


Whenever I have a ton of apricots at home, I make them into these healthy apricot bars. I learned this recipe from olich recipes on YouTube. These treats do not contain any sugar, so they are definitely good for you.

Apricots and dates have a sweet taste that is perfect with the nutty flavors of almonds and coconut flakes. You don’t need any binding ingredients, like honey, for this recipe, as the apricots and dates have a sticky consistency when blended. These homemade bars are yummy, easy to make, and only require five ingredients. Give these treats a try while apricots are in season.
