Raw, Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Bars

Bars1

Remember last week when I blogged about the most ridiculous RAW chocolate spread ever? Well I just kicked it up a notch. Turn that spread into delicious bars you can even trick your husband into eating it {mine did – and he still thinks they’re real chocolate. Shhh}.

These bars are a synch to put together, taste delicious straight from the refrigerator andddddyour waistline won’t increase from indulging in them! It’s a win win.

In the bowl of your food processor mix together 1 cup of gluten free oats, 1/4 cup of nuts {your choice – I did a mixture of pecans and almonds}, 15 dried apricots, 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil {warmed so that it is liquid} and a pinch of salt. Process together until grainy.
