Strawberry Fruit Bars

/, Sweets/Strawberry Fruit Bars

The other night I posted my Apricot Fruit Bars and I had a few requests for other flavours. I was going to hold off on posting these for a few weeks as I thought you might be all dried fruit out after my Mini Fruit Balls, Apricot Bites and Apricot Fruit Bar posts but what the people want, the people get haha!

Whilst my partner absolutely loves the Apricot Fruit Bars, my kiddies love these ones. These are a slightly softer bar at room temperature than the Apricot ones.

Tip: When serving children dried fruit or anything high in dried fruit, its always good to serve some cheese and veggie sticks along side it to help clean the teeth afterwards. You will often see on childcare centre menus (one of my most favourite things to create) that dried fruit will be accompanied with these.
