    Sharon123's Note:

    I like to find good energy bars with different tastes. This is nutritious and tastes good too! Great for the lunchbox or as an afternoon snack! I adapted this from a recipe from Ellen's Kitchen.

      I absolutely loved these. I coated a few in chocolate...I couldn't bring myself to coat them all, because I couldn't get my hands on any food-grade paraffin, and I didn't want to coat all of my healthy bars in butter. I actually liked them better plain! These have an excellent texture, much like store-bought power bars (very chewy), but with discernable bits of apricot and oats. The final "dough" was a bit hard to work with (it hardens pretty fast), but I pressed it into the pan using waxed paper and it eventually cooperated. I can't wait to try this recipe with other fruit and nut combinations. Outstanding recipe!!
