The Brats and I tested out a new recipe this week. Raw Trail Mix Bars from The Sweet Life blog. I actually made it once, on my own and then tweaked it to suit our tastes. The first time they were too crumbly because I left out the walnuts (yuck), but didn’t replace them with anything soft. This time around we added dried apricots, and it worked out perfectly! (I was going to try cashews, but the store was out. Maybe next time!)
Results: Delicious! They are really easy. There is no cooking involved (which will be amazing in the summer). They are packed full of health! The bit of chocolate makes it a perfect coffee companion. These bars are definitely joining our regular rotation!
*Tweaking: I subbed the walnuts for 1 c. of dried apricots, and raised the dates to 1 c. I also subbed the sunflower seeds for 2 tbs. sesame seeds (because that’s what we have in the cupboard!).
A special thanks to Sarah from The Sweet Life for sharing such a tasty toddler friendly recipe!
