bars to goWednesday, February 18, 2015
So, last week, Steve and I took a little trip to San Francisco. We spent an awesome night in the city and then headed north. Wineries along the Anderson Valley were visited and we ended up in a special spot; Elk, California. We had stumbled upon this gorgeous community a couple of years ago and couldn't wait to get back.
I swear it is Heaven. Heaven on Earth.
Wrapped individually, they are perfect to throw in your bag. I've been keeping a few in my knitting bag for when I'm out. They aren't as good as the cookies I've been baking but these taste like a little bit of delicious goodness. My cookie monsters seemed to think they were alright. And the man on the trip with me loved them. So, there ya go!
Bars to go:
2 cups oats
1 cup nuts (I used 1/4 c walnuts, 1/4 c sunflower seeds, 1/4 c blanched almonds, 1/4 c pumpkin seeds)
3/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the mixing paddle. Line 9 x 9 backing dish with parchment paper. Spread mix evenly in pan. Bake 350˚ for 25 minutes. Let cool and cut into desired size bars.
Wrap and go!
