But as most of you know, they are PRICEY!
I saw a recent post on The Elliott Homestead about her variety of homemade bars and thought I should give our favorite flavor a whirl. By the way, I love her blog. I love the wit, candor, faith, food, shall I go on? Its a great one to bookmark!
Here is my attempt to make Apple Pie Cinnamon Bars:
1 1/2 cup pitted dates
2 seeded apples chopped (next time I will try dried apples to make it a bit firmer)
1/2 cups almonds (raw, whole)
1/4 cup walnuts (baking)
3 TBSP raisins (make sure they are GF!)
2 tsp. cinnamon
|This picture shows a date with a pit in it and the pits I have pulled out. Having never pitted a date before (myself) I thought others might be curious as well.|
|Doesn't this just look yummy!|
|While not the prettiest to look at, it is yummy and super sweet!|
The finished project was a really soft dough that I spread out. I refrigerated it to firm it up and then cut it into bars. I put each bar in a snack size ziploc and put in a container in the fridge for a grab and go snack. Keep finished project refrigerated or frozen. Eat with in one week.
Stay tuned for my chocolate version (IT IS SO YUMMY!!!!!)
