1/3 C coconut butter (melted)
1/2-2/3 C cocoa powder (use less for a more mild chocolate flavor)

What you’ll do:

Grease a muffin pan (I use extra virgin olive oil spray)
In a food processor combine oats and walnuts until fine
Add apricots and agave nectar
Blend until thoroughly combined
Spoon mixture evenly in the muffin pan
Bake for 5-10 minutes until golden brown
Let cool
In a blender combine cashews, water, vanilla and salt (I use a Blendtec)

Pour mixture on to cooled crust
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 2 hours
Eat or place in the refrigerator for up to 2 days
