Puffed Kamut Energy Bars


  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 5 unsweetened apricots, quartered

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1/2 cup dried currants or dried blueberries, preferably unsweetened

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a medium baking dish with parchment paper or rub with oil.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the pecans, almonds, peanut butter, apricots, chia or flax seeds, and canola oil until coarsely chopped.
  3. Scrape nut and fruit mixture into a large bowl. Stir in puffed kamut, currants, and coconut.
  4. Spread mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish and press down to flatten. Sprinkle the lemon zest evenly over the top.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes until browned at the edges.
  6. Let cool then carefully cut into rectangles, or totally butcher it and eat it in chunks. That's cool too.
