Let’s get started on these tasty and wholesome apricot cookies!


  • 70g of dried apricots (just under 3 ounces)
  • Water, enough to cover apricots for soaking
  • 50g of walnuts (roughly 1.8 ounces), roughly chopped
  • 70g of hazelnuts (about 2.5 ounces)
  • 30g of pumpkin seeds (approximately 1 ounce)
  • 40g of sunflower seeds (around 1.4 ounces)
  • 20g of sesame seeds (close to 0.7 ounces)
  • 20g of flaxseeds (also about 0.7 ounces)
  • 60g of almonds (roughly 2 ounces)
  • 20g of pine nuts (about 0.7 ounces)
  • 40ml of natural honey (about 1.4 fluid ounces)
  • 1 egg white
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Soften the Apricots:
    • Place the dried apricots in a bowl and cover with cold water. Let them soak for about 15 to 20 minutes to soften up. After soaking, drain off the water completely.
  2. Prepare Nuts and Seeds:
    • Take the walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, and pine nuts and give them a rough chop to get them into smaller pieces. Grab a large mixing bowl and toss in these chopped nuts along with the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flaxseeds.
  3. Combine Apricots and Sweeten:
    • Chop the soaked apricots into small pieces and add them to your bowl of nuts and seeds. Drizzle the natural honey over the top and stir the mixture until everything is nicely coated with honey.
  4. Bind the Mixture:
    • Crack an egg and separate the white from the yolk. Add the egg white to your mixture along with a pinch of salt. Stir everything together until the mixture becomes sticky and holds together.
  5. Shape and Bake:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (360°F). Line a baking tray with parchment paper. With your hands or a spoon, form small cookie shapes with the mixture and place them on the tray. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until they turn a lovely golden brown.
  6. Cool Down:
    • Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. This will help them to firm up and become crunchy.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once cooled, your Nutty Apricot Delight Cookies are ready to be enjoyed. These are great as a healthy snack or a quick breakfast on the go!

This recipe offers a fantastic way to enjoy a sweet treat without the guilt, combining the natural sweetness of apricots with the rich flavors and textures of various nuts and seeds. Perfect for health-conscious cookie lovers!
