Apricot Newtons



Ingredients

Crust:

  • 147 g Almond Flour
  • 19.2 g Apricot Kernels, ground
  • 18 g (2 Tbsp) Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Applesauce

Filling:

  • 10 oz Dried Apricots
  • 1 Lemon, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Directions

In a VitaMix, grind about 20g  apricot kernels into a fine powder. Add about 150g almonds or almond flour, 18g coconut flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside. Blend fresh apples into applesauce and measure out 4 oz of applesauce into the mixture. Stir until fully combined and no lumps remain. Divide in half and press into 6 silicon molds. Then, in a food processor, combine 10 oz dried apricots, 1 peeled lemon, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Process until smooth and divide into the 6 molds. Top with remaining crust mixture. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Store in the freezer until ready to eat. They are great straight out of the freezer as they don’t freeze solid.
