Recipe Ingredients for Energy Chucks

1 cup dried apricots
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds

Recipe Directions for Energy Chucks

  1. 1.In a food processor, combine the apricots, cashews, peanut butter, vanilla, and maple syrup.

  2. 2.This can be tough work for your food processor. I actually blew the motor out on mine, so I'd recommend using one that is larger (mine's only 4 cups) for this process.

  3. 3.Then turn out the mixture into a medium bowl and fold in the sunflower seeds.

  4. 4.You may wish to adjust the peanut butter and/or maple syrup to meet your desired consistency.

  5. 5.Remove from bowl and press into an 8 x 8-inch foil-lined baking dish.

  6. 6.Refrigerate overnight before cutting into chunks of desired size. Ours were about 1 to 1-1/2 inch squares.
