Fig Apricot Grain-Free Granola Bar

Remember this recipe?

Turns out it was a hit.  So I subbed some dried fruit for some chocolate, which I get is to be taken very seriously and is rarely warranted.

I know I’m speaking to my peeps here.

I packed up and sent along 6 of these fruity granola bars as dessert or snacks for the next day with dinner for a new postpartum mama of baby #5. She’s pretty much my hero.

Apparently it was a hit over there, too. Thanks for being patient over there in your breastfeeding and little led world for me to load this recipe.

Fig Apricot Grain-Free Granola Bar

Nichole Hirsch Kuechle
Prep Time 20 mins
Course Snack

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup chopped almonds (see note below)
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup dried figs chopped
  • 1 cup dried apricots chopped

Instructions
 

  • Pour chopped nuts into a mixing bowl. Stir in 1/2 tsp pink salt and shredded coconut.
  • While chopping the dried figs and apricots, melt the following in a saucepan on low: coconut oil, sunflower seed butter, honey, and vanilla.
  • Once heated thoroughly and stirred together nicely with a whisk, remove from heat and stir into chopped nuts.
  • Lastly, add the dried fruit.
  • At this point I find taking my rings off and washing my hands to be imperative, as these guys are easier to flatten out with my own two hands.
  • Line an 8x8 Pyrex pan lined with parchment paper or oil with coconut oil.
  • Flatten to desired thickness and pop into the fridge to chill.
  • Score and cut once desired consistency is reached.
