Trail Bars

Theses are great as a snack or energy bar.

Trail Bars

  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup almonds or hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp unbleached white flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup chopped dates or figs
  • 1 cup chopped prunes
  • 1 egg
  • 4-5 tbsp honey
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9″ square baking pan. Place nuts on a baking sheet and roast for about ten minutes, then cool and chop into small pieces. In a large bowl mix flour, flaxseed, baking powder and baking soda then add salt and mix again. Add nuts and dried fruit and mix again. In another bowl mix egg, vanilla and honey together then pour over dried ingredients, mix well and press into baking pan. Drizzle maple syrup over top and bake for 25-30 minutes until set. Let cool for 5 minutes then cut into squares in pan. Let cool completely before removing. Will keep in a sealed container for weeks.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
