Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • Use unsulphered dried apricots if they are available.
  • These bars should be stored in the fridge for you to grab when needed.
  • They last well in the fridge for up to a week.

Ingredient measurements

  • Please note when you see ‘grams’ listed as opposed to ‘millilitres,’ or any other term of measurement, that is not incorrect. I weigh all of my ingredients, including liquids, for accuracy.
  • US customary measurements for the ingredients provided are based on a conversion calculator. This recipe was tested with metric measurements and I recommend using a digital scale to weigh ingredients for the most accurate results.
