Feeling ExperimentalBy Chocolateandoranges
I continued my strawberry eating mission with a spinach, strawberry, feta, and almond salad topped with balsamic glaze and a bit of honey. I'm almost through the first container!
And then I tried something new. I've been in search of a good afternoon snack for work lately. I have instant oatmeal and will make that sometimes but it's not always practical if I'm on the go or in meetings. On those days I turn to a store bought granola/energy bar such as a larabar, luna, etc. I always feel kind of guilty eating the bars, some of them are really pretty good for you and minimally processed (especially the larabars) but I'd still prefer to make something myself rather than rely on prepared foods.
So I decided to try out a granola bar-like recipe from LiveLaughEat, although these are actually softer than a granola bar and more cookie-like. They're made out of all whole foods and pretty healthy. I tried one out with dinner and was happy with the result. I'll probably try a few other recipes as well but this one is likely to make it into the rotation. I did make a few changes and used a mix of dates and raisins and used coconut oil rather than canola.
I also have a pumpkin hummus recipe that I also found on LiveLaughEat that I'm itching to try out...
