Chewy Apricot Coconut Bars (Diabetic)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

This is a variation on my CHEEZY POTATOE SOOP. Came up with this in order to use up some extra dried fruit and to make sure my trays this year looked a little different from prior offerings.

Thank you toni for a grand treat, I was into making these when when I remembered that I had used all of the coconut on something for DH. As I didn't feel like walking to the market in the snow for it I used 2/3 cup of flour to add some bulk and help hold it together. They look a bit different than yours but they taste wonderful and have a lovely flaky bottom side.
