Fruit and Nut Bar
We assembled 200g mixed nuts, 100g mixed fruits, 75g dessicated coconut, 90ml apple juice, some pumpkin seeds and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds.
The nuts we used were pecans, walnuts, flaked almonds and hazelnuts.
It was a simple matter of putting all the dry ingredients in the food processor, pulsing til chopped and then adding half the apple juice and blending. Once the mix was starting to come together, it was turned out into bowl and mixed, by hand, with the remaining apple juice.
The cooled bars were stacked in an airtight container and will last for a few days - assuming Sous Chef J doesn't eat them all before then.
You can make these bars using your choice of nuts, fruits and liquid - you can use nut milk, coconut milk or other fruit juice to make the dough... it's up to you. Have fun, try different mixes and see which you like the best.
