Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup soaked cashews
  • ¾ cup dried apricots {about 25)
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips *optional {lily's stevia sweetened}
  • 1-2 tbsp. raw honey *optional
Instructions
  1. In a food processor pulse all ingredients, except honey and chips.
  2. Taste mix and decide if you need honey. Mix till ingredients will stick together.
  3. Add chips if desired {I sometimes do half the batch}, then pulse gently few times.
  4. On a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper, press dough into a rectangle ½ inch thick.
  5. Put in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. Or in the freezer for a 10 minutes.
  6. They will stay fresh for up to 3 days in the fridge.
Notes
My taste testers thought the bars were plenty sweet without the honey; so taste the batter first. If adding the raw honey it is helpful to use the tablespoon for the coconut oil first and it will slide off with ease. We have use soaked almonds as well and added almond extract. If you don't have soaked nuts the raw will work but you may need to add more coconut oil or a few tablespoons of water. However, I like the creaminess of using soaked nuts.
