Or dried fruit.
Or Lara Bars.
But let's face it... kids do - and it is good for them! But dang. Those things are expensive! E made one disappear in 5 minutes. So... I had to make one... or a substitute anyway :)
We use organic, fair trade, and or local ingredients
1 1/2 cups of dried dates
1 cup of dried pineapple
1 cup of dried mango
1/2 cup of dried (not chips) bananas
1/2 cup of apricots
1 cup of coconut
1/2 cup of walnuts
Remove the pits from the dates. Chop them up. Calling them sticky would be an understatement.
A little bit at a time – put some of the dried fruit into the food processor. When it is sticking together – dump it out. When all the fruit is processed into little bits, put the coconut and the walnuts in and process them. Add all the fruit back in and process together.
Roll into small 1 inch balls (you could form them into bars- but it is hard to press them enough to make them stay together – and they are SO sweet – you don’t need honey!).
I share my posts here. It's an awesome list. Check it out. Seriously. It's a great list and if you visit blog parties you are going to want to check them out! It's up to date, organized by day, and the links all work <3
