Muffins designed to trick children into eating some fruit and vegetables. Children think they are having a delicious, moist chocolate treat. In fact they are eating low fat muffins containing apples and beetroot. And when do you confess your deception? Perhaps at their twenty-first birthday party? Or when they leave home, when you give them the recipe? Or if there are other younger children still being deceived, perhaps this is best shared privately. Like the truth about Father Christmas, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Meals Recipe Club website.
I found these at the Mr. Food site. My friends says they really are called Get Up and Go Bars because with all the fiber, you really will have to get up and run! Especially if you have one of these bars with your first morning cup of coffee!
A Healthy snack to make, and enjoy. Haven't had a chance to make this yet myself. Use your favorite dried fruit, figs, dates dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries in place of the apricots and raisins. Enjoy.
Tasty snack from Cooking Light that provides a concentrated source of carbohydrates from the raisins, along with protein and "good" fats from the nuts. Feel free to substitute nuts and fruit according to your preference, or what you have on hand. I don't care for raisins, so I used craisins (dried cranberries) ; I found I was out of slivered almonds, so I substituted some chopped macadamias. I especially loved the addition of cardamom--added an unexpected element.
Crisp and chewy, this bar is a good-for-you alternative to store-bought cereal bars. The secret ingredient, silken tofu, will give your day a protein-packed start. The recipe also works with other fruit-and-nut combinations.
