In an effort to eat cleaner, I’ve now spent a whole week without eating any sort of store bought treats (cookies, cake, chocolate, etc.). I mostly ate raspberries for dessert (best fruit!), except for Thursday, which was mom’s birthday. One of my gifts to her was an Edible Arrangements box, so I joined her in eating a slice of chocolate covered apple, and a piece of chocolate covered banana. Yum! I’m doing this simply because I got to the point where I was eating processed sugary snacks/desserts 2+ times a day, and even though my meals themselves were healthy, all the in-between stuff was not.
Anyways, I made the above bars last Sunday and ate them for breakfast all week. They were great. Filling and full of good stuff. I bought a lot of the ingredients in bulk, and plan to make a weekly bar every weekend. Today I think I’ll attempt some sort of homemade Larabar, because damn are they good. (They are only sold in one store here in PR, though, and they cost $2.50 a pop.)
Anyways, just thought I’d share last week’s recipe. I’ll post this week’s when I make it.
