This could be either a dessert or a breakfast. Either way it is yummy and open to many variations.

This recipe uses almonds, dates, macadamia nuts, and dried apples pulsed in a food processor and then mixed with melted coconut oil and spices. Form into bars and refrigerate.

My grocery store didn’t have macadamias so I used extra almonds. The dates are good but it uses 2 cups and that can get expensive. I’m thinking that you may be able to do this with raisins. They would give the same sweetness and stickiness.

You could really use any dried unsweetened fruit. I’m going to try pineapple and coconut.

  1. This sounds fantastic! Sounds like a homemade version of the Larabar Apple Pie flavor. Have you tried them before? They are made with nuts and dried fruit only and I use them as energy bars when I cycle. I like that they are grain free. Their Apple Pie one is my favorite. Blueberry Muffin comes in a close second.
