Hazelnut Apricot Bars

Oh just another bar to add to the list ;)

These are a bit different and are surprisingly not as rich as I thought they would be with the hazelnut and apricot medley.

This is the first time that I have added chia seeds, one of my new favorite items. They have recently become popular in the States but have been consumed for years in southern Mexico and Central America. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are an excellent source of protein.

Hazelnut Apricot Bars:

 20 dates
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup coconut
3/4 cup dried apricots
1 tbls chia seeds
2 tbls wildflower honey
1/3 cup hazelnut butter 


In the large portion of your Ninja (or other blender), blend of the dates and add in the walnuts and coconut. In the smaller portion, blend up the apricots and chia seeds and then add in with the dates, coconut and walnuts. Next, stir in the honey with a knife and then the hazelnut better. Blend everything together so that all the ingredients are mixed well.

Form into the desired shape, wrap in cellophane, fridge and it and viola :)))
