When you taste this raw, low-sugar, vegan treat, you'll wonder how something so delicious can be so good for you. These make a great dessert but can also pass for a morning or afternoon energy snack.



Line a 9x9-inch pan with wax paper. In a blender or food processor, combine 2 cups of the almonds with agave, coconut oil, vanilla extract and kosher salt. Blend until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the oats with ¾ cup of the shredded coconut, half of the remaining chopped almonds, apricots (or other dried fruit) and chia seeds. Stir almond-agave mixture into the dry ingredients. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Cover top with another piece of wax paper and mixture press evenly into pan. Remove wax paper and spread or drizzle melted chocolate evenly over the top. Sprinkle with remaining shredded coconut and chopped almonds. Lightly dust with Ghost Pepper Salt (if using). Let set at room temperature overnight uncovered. Slice into bars and serve. Store, sealed, in an airtight container.

“I was in Boulder and I made a point of stopping in your store near Pearl St. I had a terrific time. I love being able to buy small quantities of different spice mixtures/spices to try and I certainly bought my fair share on this visit.”
