The 12 Days of Yule – Day 11 – Apricot Bars

Published December 30, 2012 by Polana Fowdrey

Apricot Bars

These low-fat bars contain ginger, which is a lovely winter spice for calming upset tums. Apricots are high in iron, which helps build good blood, so an all-round pick-me-up!

Ingredients

1 cup buckwheat, soaked and dehydrated ( I do plenty of this in advance and keep it in the fridge for whenever it’s needed.)

1/2 cup dessicated coconut

25 dried unsulphured apricots, pre-soaked

1 tsp powdered ginger (a bit more if you like it!)

1 dsp coconut nectar (sugar alternative made from coconut.)

Method

Grind the buckwheat and coconut to a fine powder in a coffee or nut grinder.

Transfer to a food processor and add the apricots, ginger and coconut nectar.

Mix thoroughly until you have a sticky mixture.

Transfer the mixture to a silicone pie tray and spread evenly. Score into 8 bars with a pizza cutter.

Dehydrate for a few hours to repel some of the liquid.

freeze or refrigerate until needed.
