Fruit and Seed Bars
Recipe from : http://weelicious.com/2010/06/07/fruit-and-seed-bars/
These bars tasted so good I almost couldn't believe I made them myself! I followed this recipe pretty closely, so I won't post it again here. The only change I made was that I used almond butter instead of sunflower butter, because there are no nut allergies in my family and I didn't have any sunflower butter. For the fruit I used dried cranberries. I cut them into granola-bar shapes instead of squares, just because I felt like it. They're quite filling though, so I often cut the bar in half and that was enough for me. They freeze well too. I froze most of them to use in the kids' lunches and that worked very well. My family seemed to like them, but I think I liked them the most. I had been wanting to make this recipe for a while but didn't have a food processor. Fortunately, as you may have read in my previous post, I finally got one (thanks Mom and Dad!), so this was high o my list of things to try. I'm so glad I did; I know I'll be making them a lot from now on.
