Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread your coconut on a baking sheet and bake for 3-5 minutes. Watch closely, when most of the coconut is lightly browned, remove it from the oven and cool.
  3. In a high power blender (I used my Blendtec Twister Jar), or food processor, blend or pulse almonds until they are finely chopped.
  4. Pour the almonds into a medium bowl.
  5. Next, process or blend your dried apricots with the coconut oil and salt until you have a smooth paste.
  6. Pour the apricot paste into the bowl with the almonds and add your toasted coconut. Mix together until everything is combined.
  7. Line an 8×8 inch container or baking dish with parchment paper and scoop the apricot almond mixture into the dish. Press it firmly into the dish using another piece of parchment paper.
  8. Cover and freeze the bars for 2-3 hours, then lift the parchment paper out to cut into bars using a sharp knife.
  9. Return to the freezer, or keep them cold in the fridge.
