Tuesday’s tend to be my big baking day as I prepare the week’s lunchbox treats and try to make something yummy to take to my evening study class. Today, I chose to make apricot bars and jam tarts.
I make these tarts with half wholemeal flour and sugar-free fruit spread, so they’re much healthier and nutritious than a classic jam tart. They’ve also got a lower GI, so they’re better at sustaining energy levels. My favourite fruit spreads are the one made by St Dalfour, which are sweetened with grape juice. Lil’ L loves these tarts as a lunchbox or after school treat! Here’s the recipe.
