Apricot & Cashews Energy Bars
Recipe adapted from Christal
1 cup dry apricots
½ cup raw cashews
5 tbsp oats
½ cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
2 tbsp toasted quinoa
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
Pulse cashews in food processor until crumbly and remove into a bowl.
Pulse apricots until finely chopped.
Add cashews and other ingredients to apricot mixture and pulse until all are well combined.
Transfer to a cling wrap or parchment lined pan and firmly press to form even layer.
Place the pan in the freezer for one hour to set and then slice into bars of desired size. (You can slice and store too as I did!)
Store in refrigerator.
To toast quinoa, take 2 tbsp quinoa and dry roast in a pan for few minutes till you hear popping sound. Quinoa will not change shape when popped but texture and taste changes.
