Chocolate Fruit Bites

Like the energy squares at The Merc.

Ingredients

  • ½ c almonds
  • ¼ c dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 c dried apricots, packed
  • ½ tbsp natural peanut butter

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and coconut oil for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Microwave for additional 15-second increments as needed until the chocolate is melted.

  2. In a food processor, grind almonds into desired consistency (anything from a fine powder to slightly chunky). Pour in the melted chocolate mixture. Process until thoroughly mixed. Pour the chocolate-almond mixture into a small bowl. Set aside.

  3. Add dried apricots to the food processor and grind until it forms a rough paste. Add in the peanut butter. Process until everything is combined and the desired consistency is reached.

  4. Grease a loaf pan. Pour the mixture into the pan. Evenly press down. Note: I used half of the pan for thicker bites.

  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting. Cut into 1x1" bites. Keep refrigerated to store.
