  • 1½ cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • ½ cup Nature's Eats Almond Flour
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg

  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • Filling:

  • 20-25 presoaked Nature's Eats Dried Apricots

Most of us remember Fig Newton bars from back in the day, or maybe you still enjoy them today. This Almond Flour Apricot Health Bar is similar to a Fig Newton with a couple of alterations. The outside of these bars are made with almond flour making them a gluten free treat, and we also replace the figs with dried apricots.


  1. Preheat oven to 350° and grease or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the wet.

  3. Once the dough ingredients are thoroughly combined, place in the fridge for one hour.

  4. Create the filling by putting the presoaked Nature's Eats Dried Apricots in a food processor. Blend until it becomes a spreadable consistency. Add water if needed. If you prefer a sweeter filling, add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

  5. Roll the chilled dough out on a floured surface into a thin, rectangular shape.

  6. Spread a layer of the apricot filling over only half of the dough’s surface.

  7. Then place the other half of the dough over the filling.

  8. Cut into traditional Newton cookie-like shapes and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

  • Each bite is soft and chewy with a tangy apricot flavor from the dried apricot center. These apricot bars are almost like apricot-filled cookies, light and delicious.
