The Ten Cow Chick posted these Larabars, and I thought they'd make a great alternate to a sandwich since my kids aren't big on sandwiches. I think they are delicious. I'm trying to get them to grow on Eli.
The Ten Cow Chick put all her ingredients in a food processor for about 30 seconds. I couldn't find the blade to my food processor so I just put the ingredients in my blender until it looked good. Then, I put a small amount of the mix in a baggie and formed it into a ball, then flattened it into a cookie shape. Lunch cookie, anyone?
Recipes from the Ten Cow Chick:
Very Cherry: 1/4 cup dates, 1/4 cup dried cherries, 1/3 cup pecans, almonds or walnuts, 1/8 t. cinnamon.
Cashew Cookie dough: 1/3 cup dates, 1/2 cup raw cashews.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: 1/3 up dates, 1/2 cup cashews, 1/2 t. vanilla, cinnamon, 1/2 oz. finely chopped semisweet chocolate.
Blueberry Bliss: 1/4 cup dried blueberries, 1/4 cup dates, 1/3 cup almonds, 1/2 t. lemon zest, 1 drop almond extract.
I bought my dried fruit in the bulk section at Smith's. I didn't bother buying the different kinds of nuts because I had some salted, mixed nuts on hand. Yummy.
