    "Do you make snack bars? What is your favorite recipe?"

    I make my own version of LaraBars, favourites so far being:

    Coconut Lime.....

    1 cup of pitted natrual dates
    1 cup of Cashews (unsalted)
    1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
    1 dollop of vanilla paste
    1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes
    juice and zest of 1 lime

    Blizt together, make it to balls, put into fridge for a hour, wrap in baking parchment....consume as desired.

    Chocolate and Cherry.

    Same as above except replace toasted coconut with fresh pitted cherries, and add a 1/2 cup of cacco nibs!

    Pure Bliss!!!!

    Ok, Soccergrok has gotta throw his into the hat. Been doing these for a couple years. Yes, they are baked too(but as Rivvin once said, "Fuck You, because I can!). Not directed at you CG:-) Just naysayers and such. I don't eat them that often, but consider them a treat...Enjoy

    *Super Nut Muffins*

    *Ingredients:*

    3 cups nuts (mix of macadamia, brazil, walnuts, almonds & pecan nuts, or whatever you prefer)
    .5 cup Pumpkin Seeds
    1 cup pitted dates (about 12-15)You can also use dried mango or pineapple
    .5 cups dried cranberries
    Juice from one Lemon
    1-2 tbsp lemon zest
    .5 cup coconut flakes (I like the bigger flakes; unsweetened)
    1-2 tbsp ginger (chopped or grated; depending on how you like)
    1/3 cup almond flour
    2 eggs
    1/8 tsp baking soda
    1/8 tsp baking powder
    1/4 cup molasses (optional: substitiute with almond butter)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground nutmeg
    Dark Chocolate Chips(optional, but I love em)

    Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease muffin pan (Coconut oil preferred).
    Mix nuts & dates together in food processor. Chop together until the nuts
    and dates are chopped up but not too finely chopped; enough to break up the
    nuts and dates.
    In a different bowl, pour nut and date mixture, then add all other
    ingredients. Mix well and scoop into muffin trays (these will not rise).
    Bake until the tops are golden brown (about 25 minutes) and let cool.
    Eat and enjoy!! Makes about 10 nut muffins.

    **These muffins are great snacks & breakfast alternatives for kids and
    teachers alike. They are full of nuts (good, healthy fats) and
    deliciousness to sustain energy for longer periods of time, so kids (and
    teachers) don't have drastic energy drops (sugar crashes) throughout the
    day. These treats are also gluten free, grain free, & dairy free. You can use more or less
    molasses (to taste), without any, they should still be sweet because of the
    dates.* If you reduce the amount of molasses add almond butter to help keep the muffins from crumbling.
    Free your mind, and your Grok will follow!

    Here you go

    What is vanilla bean paste? « Baking Bites
    “But a smell shivered him awake.It was a scent as old as the world. It was a hundred aromas of a thousand places. It was the tang of pine needles. It was the musk of sex. It was the muscular rot of mushrooms. It was the spice of oak. Meaty and redolent of soil and bark and herb. It was bats and husks and burrows and moss. It was solid and alive - so alive! And it was close"

    Thanks for the info -- I'm definitely going to have to try vanilla bean paste, and this seems the perfect recipe to do so!
