Healthy Date Apricot Bars

This is very yummy! I loved the way it tasted sweet,without adding a lot of sweetener. It had a good healthy taste to it. It could be eaten as a dessert, or for breakfast etc.. There are lots of possibilities. :)

1 C chopped dates
4 Apricots chopped (I had some in the freezer) *
3/4 C water
1 1/2 C Rolled Oats
1 C Wheat flour
1/2 C Unsweetened shredded Coconut
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 C Honey
1/3 C Coconut oil or butter

1. In a small saucepan, combine dates, water and apricots. Cook mixture until it comes to a boil. Reduce to medium heat simmer, uncovered for about 5 min until all soft and combined. It will be a nice thick mixture. Set aside.

2. In bowl combine oats, flour, honey, coconut, baking soda, salt, and cut in the coconut oil, until it is all blended. Pat half of it into a 8-in square greased pan. Drop date mixture on next. Gently pat remaining flour mixture on top. Bake at 350 about 20 min or till golden brown. Cool and cut into bars. Yum!

* Dried apricots should work also.

My daughter said it tasted like oatmeal with brown sugar on it.
