Gorgeous Almond Coconut & Apricot bars

These bars are a perfect guilt-free snack when you are feeling a little peckish.

You can change up the seeds or nuts in them but the almonds and apricots are essential as is the shredded coconut which adds delicious chewiness (is that a word??).

Anyway they are seriously yummy.

Now I find they are best kept in the fridge as they will soften at room temperature but still taste amazing!

Here's how to make them

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped cashews or pecans
  • 1/4 cup mixed seeds - (I used sesame seeds, sunflower seeds & pepitas)
  • 1/4 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 cup dried apricots, diced into small pieces
  • 1½ cups shredded coconut (or coconut flakes)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (I just added these for a little protein boost but they are optional)
  • ½-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. In a large bowl place all the ingredients (except the honey & the coconut oil) an mix to combine
  3. Mix the honey & coconut oil together then pour over the dry ingredients ad stir until combined.
  4. Press the mix into a lined slice tray and press down firmly.
  5. Cook for 10-15 minutes until golden brown - watch closely toward the end of cooking to make sure it doesn't burn!
  6. Remove and allow to cool then slice.

Enjoy!
