Trial Run of Leslie's Treats
As I grabbed a granola bar for myself & my daughter, I thought about all the "junk" in them that Leslie talks about - so I decided to try and make some of her PowerHouse Treats (see link below). Thanks, Leslie! I'm eating one as I blog, and it's so good.
Puffed Rice Cereal
Peanutbutter (I used Adam's)
Agave Nectar & C. Syrup
Organic Dried Blueberries
I didn't add as many ingredients as I'd like, mostly because I want to ease my girls into it using items that I know they'll like. Next time, perhaps I'll add whole cashews & raisins, and I'll definately use brown rice syrup instead of the corn (I'm just trying to use it up from the Peanut "Better" Bars I made recently). I placed some blueberries in the bottom of each muffin tin because I thought it'd be pretty. Next time, I'll stir everything together so that it holds together better.
Overall, I'm really pleased with the results and I'll make them again. I feel much better about giving our family these to snack on. Even using the corn syrup it's a step in the right direction, and I can pronounce all the ingredients!
