Woo so what a week it was last week. Had an amazing week at PaleoFX with a bunch of friends geeking out on the latest and greatest in Paleo with the biggest names in the community. If you want to read about it you can in my PaleoFX Roundup. It was definitely a much needed vacation for me but I can honestly say I am going to sleep a lot more now that I am back to work haha. I think that at any given point in the house I was in that someone was awake at all times. That poor rental agency is really going to wonder why their electric bill for the week doubled their usual Monthly bill. Haha well when you put 10 Bloggers in one house, you amass 9 MacBooks, 1 PC (Yuck), 4 iPads, 6 Iphones, and 4 DSLR Cameras with enough money invested in lenses to buy me a new car there are not enough plugs to support.
Well after all that I am posting this recipe because I wish I had made some of these prior to have them to snack on during lunch. We were all so busy running around that most of the time I missed lunch or just didn’t prefer the one option being served and these things are like Paleo Crack. I have had them taste tested by a few friends and their kids and they all tell me they taste like fruity pebbles. Random I know but thats pretty bad-ass if they do. Enjoy!
- Place your dates, macadamia nuts, apples, and almonds in a food processor or really strong blender.
- Pulse until your dates, macadamia nuts, and almonds are in small chunks and transfer to a mixing bowl
- Add in all remaining ingredients. Using your hands mix well to ensure an even coating of everything
- Once mixed, using parchment paper, flatten out your mixture to the size of bars your want or you can use individual ziploc bags and form them inside the bag
- Place in refrigerator and let cool, then enjoy
- If these don't taste like apple pie to you, then play with the spices, you can add some nutmeg or cloves and mix the flavors around. The possibilities are endless but make sure you come back and let me know what you used :)
