Prep Time10 mins
Total Time2 hrs 10 mins
- 125 g unsweetened desiccated coconut + 10g extra to decorate
- 120 g dried blueberries + 10g extra to decorate
- 120 g dried apricots
- 75 g cashews + 10g extra to decorate
- 2 tablespoons freeze dried blueberry powder
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
Line and grease a 6 x 6 x 3 inch square baking tin with two long pieces of baking parchment so they cross in the middle and come up and over the sides of the tin.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and combine for 3-5 minutes until all the components have broken down and come together into a sticky ball.
Tip the mixture into the baking tin and, using kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil, press down on top so the surface is even.
Roughly chop the extra blueberries and cashew nuts and scatter over the surface of the bars along with the extra coconut.
Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up then carefully remove from the tin and cut into 12 bars.
Store the bars in the fridge in between snacking for about a week.
