Apricot Nut & Seed Bars

12 bars Prep time: 1 hour + 15 min

I love having healthy grab-and-go options around for when I need some fuel and I’m short on time. These Apricot Nut & Seed Bars are perfect for making on a day off and keeping in the fridge or freezer for an energy boost later in the week. 

Apricots serve as an antioxidant-rich natural sweetener and binder in these bars, holding together pecans, pumpkin seeds, cashews, and coconut that will fill you up with fiber and nourishing fats. The raw pecans add a nutty flavor and pair great with cinnamon, plus they’re rich in bone-building minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
