apricot coconut almond bars

apricot coconut almond bars

I feel like this last week I was moving in slow motion.. I had a really productive sewing week but my email inbox is out of control.. there's week old text messages i haven't responded to.. i haven't even cleaned my bathroom (which i normally do twice a week!). But i'm okay with that! That's what next week is for right? I'll pour myself some extra coffee and get set on that to-do list.
In the mean time I just really needed to tell you to make these amazing bars. I saw them on Dani's blog and had them made and in my belly within an hour.. They are so quick and delicious and healthy! Definitely on the sweet side so keep the squares small!

Apricot coconut almond bars

1 1/2 cups dried apricots
1/2 cup raw almonds
2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
Coarse salt
1/2 oz dark chocolate, melted
parchment paper (i used saran wrap since i didnt have parchment paper)
9-by-5-inch loaf pan

Pulse apricots, almonds, coconut, and a pinch of salt in a food processor until finely ground.
Line your loaf pan with parchment, leaving an inch overhang on all sides. Transfer mix to pan and press firmly to form a rectangle.
Drizzle or spread chocolate and sprinkle with some coconut. Use parchment/saran overhang to remove from pan.
Transfer to the refrigerator and leave until firm, about 15 minutes or so. Slice into 6 bars, and then into 12 square pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Thanks for sharing the recipe dani!
