Preheat the oven to 275°F.

Place the apricots and dates in the bowl of a food processor and pulse into a smooth puree. Add the coconut oil and pulse until incorporated. Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the rest of the ingredients (oats through raisins) until well combined. Pour the apricot puree over the dry ingredients and stir until evenly coated.
