Easy fruit & nut bars
1 cup almonds
1 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tablespoon agave, optional
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1. Place nuts, fruit and oats in a food processor. Blend until crumbly and fine.
2. Add the remaining (binding) ingredients and pulse until a ball forms. From here, you can go 2 different ways:
3. Remove dough onto waxed paper, divide into even portions, form into a bar, and wrap each separate bar in waxed paper. Refrigerate and grab as a quick snack. Or:
4. Press into a pan and cut into bars. Make sure to cover and refrigerate.
Any fruit and nut combo works with this recipe. I've made these with protein powder as well; just add more of the binding ingredients. Flax can be added as well. These are very handy and very easy to make.
