Apricot-Date Nut Bars

These fruit-nut bars are the bomb. Containing very few raw ingredients, you can mix up the fruit and nuts to be whatever you like! I chose apricot & date and added some cocoa and shredded coconut on top to make it taste even more like a chocolate treat. 

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • ½ cup apricots
  • ½ cup soft dates (remove pit)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Add nuts to food processor and process until fine.
  2. Add in fruits, cocoa, and oil, and process until mixture forms a sticky dough
  3. Spread the dough like fudge into a lined 8 – inch baking pan
  4. Sprinkle coconut over the bars evenly
  5. Refrigerate or freeze to set and then cut
  6. Store in fridge or freezer (I like them frozen, they stay soft enough to eat without defrosting!)
