Coconut Apple Bars (Raw!)


Inspired by a recipe in The Raw Food Gourmet, Gabrielle Chavez

Very tasty energy bars made of all good stuff.


470 ml 2 c. walnuts
350 ml1 & 1/2 c. shredded coconut
2 apples, cored and chopped
240 ml1 c. raisins and/or dates*
5 ml1 tsp. vanilla
240 ml1 c. currants or other dried fruit

salt if desired


Chop nuts in a food processor. Combine them with the coconut in a large bowl.

Process the apples, vanilla, and raisins to a slurry. Pulse in the currants but do not blend them. Mix the slurry into the nuts and coconut.

Spread onto mesh dehydrator sheets and dry until crispy-pliable.


The original recipe adds gogi berries instead of currants and suggests other options: dried cranberries, cherries, blueberries, more raisins.
*Substituting dates for some of the raisins in the slurry makes it stick together better.
Feel free to try other nuts and try pears instead of apples.
If you don't have a dehydrator you could try baking these----and be sure to let us know how it turns out!
