Apricot-oat bars

See also

Once in awhile I want a healthy sweet. This is one of those. It’s quick and easy to whip up, satisfies my sweet tooth, and has plenty of fiber and nutritional benefits. I did not actually measure anything; I just made an educated guess. It’s pretty hard to mess these up.

Here's the recipe (amounts approximate):

6 oz. dried apricots
1 C. oats
Agave to taste

All you do is throw the apricots and oats into the Vitamix or food processor, process until the apricots are in small pieces, and drizzle in some agave until you get the texture and sweetness you want. It doesn’t take much agave. Too little and the bars won’t hold together; too much and they’ll be kind of gooey and overly sweet.

Then you can just spoon this up as a snack or roll it into a log and chill it for awhile to harden it up a bit. It’s one sweet you won’t have to feel guilty about.
