Ha! Sometimes even more than really pretty food photos I like ones where the food does not look very appetizing. It just makes me laugh. This photo has me giggling as I'm typing because it totally looks like a turd.
Ok, so now that I've got you really hungry I wanted to share this really yummy recipe so that you can make your own delicous bars that look like pieces of poop. (Ok, don't worry, my poo doesn't really look like this.)
Ivan kept asking me to make some kind of granola type bar and I somehow stumbled across this recipe on Foodie with Family for Homemade Larabars. I had never tried a Larabar but the recipe sounded good so I tried it out.check out the original recipe so you know what I'm talking about.
2. I don't currently have a food processor so I used my Magic Bullet (greatest thing ever) which is much smaller. I ground the nuts in batches and put them into a big bowl after they were beat to a pulp by the bullet. Then I ground the chocolate chips in batches and added them to the nuts in the bowl. Are you getting the idea? Just in case you're not...then I processed the dates in the bullet in batches and added them to the bowl too. I mixed the nuts, chocolate and dates with a wooden spoon and then added all the peanut butter at the end. Obviously a food processor is much easier but these aren't too tough to make without one.
They are seriously yummy and I want to try making a coconut version soon. Let me know if you try these out!
