No-bake Popcorn Slice

no bake popcorn slice - gluten free, dairy free -

As much as I enjoy baking, when life get busy often the LAST thing I feel like doing is turning on the oven and cooking!

That's when no-bake treats are perfect and let me tell you, I'm building quite the repertoire.

Popcorn is a regular afternoon tea at our place. Air-popped popcorn + melted butter = happy kids!

I wanted to mix it up a little this week though so I decided to turn their popcorn into something a bit more special.

This is such a flexible recipe. You could replace the tahini and rice malt syrup with peanut butter and honey, or almond butter and maple syrup (I would use a less honey or maple syrup though as it would be very sweet). Use different dried fruit, replace with dark chocolate chips or just leave it out. So good!

No-bake Popcorn Slice

1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
pinch salt
40g natural dried apricots or dates, roughly chopped
5 cups popped corn (around 2 tbs unpopped)

Line a square brownie pan with baking paper and set aside.

Mix tahini, syrup, salt and dates together in a large bowl.

Add the popcorn and mix well to coat.

Pour into prepared pan and press down well with your hands.

Place into the fridge to firm up a little.
