Apricot Power Bars


1 cup dried apricots
1 cup pecans
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
apricot nectar (or apple juice)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Chop apricots and nuts (easily done in a food processor). Mix in honey, cinnamon, oats, flour, and oil. Add enough juice (2 to 4 tablespoons) to form thick batter. Press into an 8x8-inch square greased pan. Bake 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into 12 bars and let cool in the pan. Prepared bars can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


Serves 12.
