Tropical 3 Ingredient Energy Bars

So remember these from a few weeks ago?

They were so popular (and so delicious) I decided to do a tropical spin on them!


And I hate to tell you this, but I like these even better than the originals.


Date, apricots, and macadamia nuts make for a winning combination!

Prep time
Total time
Tropical 3 Ingredient Energy Bars
Serves: 15
  • 1½ cups dates (I used deglet noor)
  • 1½ cups dried apricots
  • 1½ cups macadamia nuts
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • ⅓ cup shredded coconut (optional)
  1. Place the dates, apricots, and macadamia nuts in a food processor.  Blend until a thick dough forms.  It will take a couple of minutes.
  2. If adding optional ingredient, place dough into a bowl and mix the white chocolate chips and coconut in with your hand.  If not using optional ingredients, skip this step.
  3. Press mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Refrigerate until firm.  Cut into 15 pieces.
  4. Eat!
