My grandkids are visiting from New York. Four things absolutely must take place at this Nana's/Nanny's house... bedtime reading, baking, outdoor exploration, and sewing. I had the reading covered by checking out 26 books from the public library. Baking..well, today, O'Malley and I made these Applenut Flax Bars.
Applenut Flax Bars
1 cup old-fashioned (not instant) oats
4 large medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
½ cup raisins
½ cup Brazil nuts, chopped
¼ cup milk (or nut or seed milk)
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
2 tbsp raw (not roasted) nut butter (e.g., peanut, almond, cashew)
Preheat oven to 300°. Mix all ingredients together and press into a 9X9 glass baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing.
