Makes 8



  1. First break up the Vegan Gooey Filled Cookies into a food processor or blender.
  2. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, and dried apricots and blitz until smooth. The mixture should be super-thick and sticky, but well combined.
  3. Spoon the mixture out into a bowl and then add the pistachios and flaked almonds. Stir through with a spoon or spatula so that the nuts are evenly spread throughout the mixture, then transfer to a lined baking tray.
  4. Flatten the mixture evenly across the baking tray and then press a few extra dried apricots on top. Leave in the fridge to chill for 2 hours.
  5. Once chilled, slice up into 8 evenly-sized bars. If you’re feeling extra indulgent, you can try dunking the end of each one into some melted dark chocolate just like Nadja has. Leave to set and then enjoy!
