Cranberry Chocolate Nut Squares

1 1/2 cups whole raw almonds
2 tablespoons flax meal
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/2 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
1/4 cup prunes, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons cranberries

3-4 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce

Yields 16
Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 20cm square tin with parchment paper.
Put the raw almonds in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add all other ingredients, except the apple sauce, and pulse a few times until medium to finely chopped. Add the apple sauce and blend until mixture sticks together in one lump.
Press the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until edges become golden brown. Let cool before cutting into squares. Keeps well in the fridge.
