It's been an absolute struggle trying to get back to eating gluten-free. I do the worst in the afternoons when I need a quick snack. Edible Perspective has a pretty good recipe for "Larabar" type snack bars that I fancied up to my liking.
They're really yummy. Admittedly, a lot of work for just 12 bars, but they're a wonderful treat to cure my afternoon cravings.
What's on the inside?
14 dates (pitted)
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup almonds (coarsely chopped)
3 dried apricots (chopped)
1 Tbs. flaxseed meal
1-2 Tbs raisins
Put sunflowers and pumpkin seeds through a food processor. I have a tiny chopper so I had to do it in small batches. Set that aside and then put dates through the processor. I mixed all the ingredients together in a bowl using my hands. It's thick like bread dough. Then put the mix between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll it flat. Cut into rectangles. I preserved mine in the refrigerator.
