DIRECTIONS

  • Place apricots and dates into a food processor. Blend for about 20 seconds to break down the fruits a bit. Add in FlapJacked mix, cinnamon and coconut and blend for 30 seconds (scrape the sides if ingredients stick). Add in honey and cashew butter and blend for another 30-60 seconds (scraping sides if needed). Finally add in cashews and pulse a few times just to break them up a bit.
  • Lightly coat a 9"x9" baking dish with nonstick spray. Scoop out the mixture from the food processor and flatten down (using a spatula) to touch all edges of the baking dish.
  • Place the the chocolate chips in a glass dish and melt in the microwave (heating for 2 minutes and stirring a few times). Pour the chocolate overtop of the apricot mixture and spread evenly to coat.
  • Place in the refrigerator for one hour. Remove and cut into 16 equal squares.
  • Store bars in the refrigerator in an air-tight container or wrap in plastic. ENJOY!
