- 1 1/2 cups dried apricots
- 1/2 cup raw almonds, toasted
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted
- Coarse salt
- 1/2 ounce dark chocolate, melted
Pulse apricots, almonds, 1 tablespoon coconut, and a pinch of salt in a food processor until finely ground.
Line a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with parchment, leaving an inch overhang on all sides. Transfer mixture to pan and press firmly to form a rectangle.
Use parchment overhang to remove from pan. Drizzle mixture with chocolate and sprinkle with remaining coconut.
Transfer to refrigerator and leave until firm, about 15 minutes. Slice into six bars.
