Makes 16 Squares
1/2 butter cup coconut oil
1 cup sucanat
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups whole spelt flour or brown rice flour
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
½ cup dried apricots, chopped
Preheat oven to 325° F and lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan with coconut oil and line the bottom with a piece of parchment paper.
Place the butter or coconut oil and sucanat in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix again.
Mix the flour, sea salt, baking soda and baking power together in a separate bowl and add to the sugar/egg mixture. Mix until well-blended. Add the pecans and apricots and mix again.
Scoop the mixture into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling is light brown and set. Remove from the oven and let cool.
