  1. Place the apricots, dates, maple syrup, and vanilla extract into a food processor and blend into a smooth paste. Stop the blender from time to time to scrape down the sides.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients and pulse until just combined. Be careful not to over process the mixture; the bar looks and tastes better with some of the nuts and fruit left chunky.
  3. Press mixture into a lined 8” x 8” baking pan and refrigerate for a few hours. When fully chilled cut into 16 bars.

    I made these, I realized I had all the ingredients except the goji berries so substituted cranberries, also added a 1/4 c coconut oil just to keep everything together. Stored so well in the fridge for 10 days as they are really filling.
