Lately we’ve been trying to improve our health through nutrition–juicing some, adding some things to our diet and removing some things.
I’m a “snacker” most of the day, so inspired by my neighbors, I set out to create a snack that satisfies my sweet craving but is healthy enough to eat all I want 😀
I’ve come up with one that I really like so I thought I’d share. I am so cursed with an entrepreneurial spirit that I couldn’t enjoy the first few hours of my new recipe without a flood of marketing ideas. (“I can call it ‘Raw Power’, package it in bite-sized pieces…logo, I need a good logo….let’s see, now what was that website that sells the packaging bags in bulk? I’ll charge $2.00 a bag”, (quickly figuring the cost)…more random thoughts….“Great. I should be able to profit about $2 a week.”
Moving on to just enjoying the snack….
Here is the versatile, substitute-what-you want recipe I came up with:
3 Tbls. coconut oil, warmed to liquid state
Mix in the following ingredients–I didn’t measure 😉 But I probably put in about 3-5 Tbls. of most ingredients:
- Ground flax seed
- Hemp seed
- Chopped cashews
- Oats (I ground up some of them with a hand-chopper)
- Coconut flakes
- Honey to taste (or dates for sweetness)
I’m going to try adding mashed bananas next time.
Either roll into balls and let harden, or press into small glass dish and cut into bars after hardening. Yummy!
