-1 cup raw organic almonds
-1 cup dried apricots
-1 cup dried dates
-2 TBSP coconut spread
I do want to say that the coconut spread I just ran across and Amazing Savings is just that, organic coconut (oil, pulp and all) pureed. That is the only ingredient organic coconut. And we are really enjoying the flavor it adds to the bars. If you don't have the coconut I would probably use a little less almond or add more of the dried dates.
Just add all ingredients to a food processor and let it run on high for a couple of minutes. Line a pan, I use a small rectangular pan, with parchment paper. Put the mixture from the food processor into the lined pan and press. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. You can then lift the paper right out of the pan and cut the cooled mixture into bars or squares.
I put them into a covered dish and leave them in the refrigerator. They rarely last more than a day. I want to experiment with different nuts, but my boys want the almonds so I haven't had time. I also think shredded coconut or sesame seeds would be tasty.
