Apricot Almond Bars (grain-free)

These bars are amazing. I meant to save them for after dinner, but I couldn’t help myself. I meant to grab a photo before I dove into them, but the aroma lured me in. I meant to stop eating after nibbling at a corner, but now the pan looks like the Fantastic Mr. Fox got to them.

They’re super easy to make, and they’re grain-free, too. Which makes them almost good for you, right? Good enough, that’s what I say. Dig in.

2 sticks unsalted butter (I use Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter)

1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (I use Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Coconut Sugar)

1/2 tsp sea salt

2.5 cups almond flour (I ONLY use Blanched Almond Meal Flour)

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

10-12 oz organic apricot preserves (I used Trader Joe’s; any good quality one will work)

3/4 cup slivered almonds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar.

Add salt, vanilla, and almond flour, and mix until thoroughly combined.

Press mixture into a non-stick or parchment paper-lined 9×9 inch pan.

Spread preserves evenly on batter and top with almonds.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until edges are nicely browned.

Cool it if you can wait that long.
