Honey & Thyme Roasted Apricots

Honey & Thyme roasted apricot paleo recipe

I live in Dubai, where fruit is really hit and miss to say the least. It can be expensive, tasteless, more well travelled than me, or a combo of all 3. My way around this is pretty simple. If I’ve once again made a crap purchase of tasteless fruit, I roast it. Stone fruits, figs, apples, pears, even grapes. Perfect for an easy dessert, breakfast or spooned over your Smith St Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix (blatant plug).


Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

  1. Halve and deseed your apricots and place them cut side up in a baking dish so they fit snugly.
  2. Drizzle over the honey and juice.
  3. Lay the thyme sprigs on top.
  4. Roast for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Serve with coconut yoghurt.
