    YUM! I have been craving dried apricots. I read they are high in iron so I need to get some that have no sulphur or other crap. Thanks for the recipe!

    These look so great. With “Sunny” in the title, I expected some citrus…how do you think they’d be with added orange juice or zest? I’ll have to try to make them and find out!

  11. Colby

    I will be making these Friday night! Thanks for the recepie!

  12. Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm you know what would be sooo good? Orange zest! I don’t know why but I totally think apricot and orange go together well!

    yum! these look really good and I have some dates leftover from making lara bars and raw pie, so I might have to give these a try!!

    i agree Kanrocksas was a silly name for it, i wanted to go because I am a huge muse fan but knowing it was in august and I hate heat, i skipped!

  15. Lisa

  29. Jess from Midwest Vegan

    Your apricot energy squares look delicious! I have quite a penchant for dried apricots, so this looks especially yummy. πŸ™‚

    I wanted to go to Kanrocksas (which does have a crappy name, lol), but I have a pretty straight job for now. I used to go to Schwag before it got cancelled, but I can’t wait to get on the music festival circuit again. Wakarusa in 2012 for sure!

    These are fantastic! Had to make a second batch as we have been using them as energy bars after karate and kickboxing classes for my husband and I. They sure do taste something similar to a larabar, but better. Plus, I didn’t freeze them at all. Just rolled them into a ball and put them in the fridge and are fantastic that way. We call them energy balls. Thanks again for the fantastic recipe!

  31. Bethany

    they look AMAZING!!! going to pick up the ingredients tomorrow.

  32. Tanya

    Finally got some dried apricots and made these yesterday! Very good. The only problem was they were a bit crumbly, after taking them out of the freezer. Maybe I should’ve added just a tsp of water or something to help keep them together more…?? Anyway, I cut them and put them back in the freezer. I’ll have one in a bit, before my workout today πŸ™‚

  33. Harmien

    Just made a batch for boyfriend and his running buddies. They cleared the plate!
    I helped… *grin*… Delicious!! Thank you!

    I made these but used figs instead of dates, because I have a habit of shopping without a list and got confused, and the figs were calling to me. Delicious. Even my husband liked them and he was skeptical and said they are just as good as the cliff bars he buys. I am going to make a lot more and try adding in different things. A batch with chocolate chips….because sometimes a girl just needs chocolate. πŸ˜‰

    The first time I made these I added Maca powder which really overpowered them, so I made them again yesterday and added some cranberries and a dash of coconut oil, and now they are divine! Thanks Amber, can’t wait to buy your book! You have inspired me to try new things and experiment on my own!

    I wonder if another dried fruit would work with this recipe? Apricots are on my foods to avoid list .. sigh. (from a food intolerance test)
