Health, Home, and Happiness: Strawberry Almond Bars

Friday, March 26, 2010

Strawberry Almond Bars

Yum! Re-doing the homemade clif bars we did a while back to see what we can do without grains, and here's a GAPS/SCD friendly granola-ish bar.


Ingredients:
  • 3 cups soaked, dehydrated almonds  
  • 1 cup frozen organic strawberries
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Cream Concentrate from Tropical Traditions- optional, I think, or replace with some coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Pinch of sea salt
Ran through the food processor with the metal blade, then pulsed for a little bit until it was nice and blended.  The food processor didn't have a problem with the frozen berries. I used frozen just because that's what I had on hand.




Spread into a 8x8 Pyrex that I had greased with palm oil, baked at 250 degrees for 30 minutes, cut into bars (squares), returned to the oven at 250 for another 30 minutes, carefully removed with a spatula and allowed to cool upside down.  They really were goopy when I took them out of the pan, but stayed together well once cool.

No preservatives, so keep in the fridge.  We loved them! Got to soak and dehydrate some more almonds so I can do some more.  With the weather warming up, it's nice to be able to grab something to eat while enjoying the sunshine.

More:
A Clif-type bar with oats
Another snack- Lazy Stovetop Popcorn
and Dried Fruit is great on the run as well

This looks fantastic! I've been meaning to try some Lara-bar style (similar to this one) "balls" with almonds and dates, but I LOVE the idea of strawberries. YUM!

Best,
Sarah

PS - Also love some of your books on your sidebar, including "Dumbing Us Down" and "Real Learning", among others . . . will have to check out the remainder for further inspiration!

I made these over the weekend. I used a mixture of frozen berries and they turned out great. Perfect snack for my toddler and me. Thanks for the recipe.
