Spiced Apricot Snack Bars

A sweet (but still relatively healthy) treat for everyone over 1.

Spiced Apricot Snack Bars

-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
-1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp ground cardamom
-1/2 cup orange juice
-1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
-2 tbsp coconut oil
-1 egg, lightly beaten
-2/3 cup dried apricots, snipped into tiny pieces

In a bowl mix together flours, sugar, baking powder, soda, and cardamom. In another bowl, mix together orange juice, applesauce, coconut oil, and egg; add to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in the apricots. Pour into an 8x8 pan lined with a sling of parchment paper. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the pan cool on a wire rack and when cool carefully lift using the parchment sling and cut into bars.


  1. I don't see sugar listed in the ingredient list, however, you mention it when mixing together dry ingredients. Thanks!

  2. Fixed! Thanks for bringing that to my attention. It seems as though I need an editor!

  3. I used honey, instead of the sugar, as well as adding some seeds and oats. Yum!

  4. Thanks for sharing your adaptation! Oats would be a wonderful addition...I think I'll try that next time.
