    Default Almond Power Bars

    ALMOND POWER BARS
    Ingredients
    2 cups almonds (raw or crispy nuts)
    cup flax meal (flax seeds ground in a blender)
    cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
    cup unsalted almond butter (like peanut butter, made from almonds instead)
    teaspoon salt
    cup coconut oil (could probably sub butter here)
    1-2 Tbs honey
    1 Tbs maple syrup
    2-3 teaspoons vanilla extract
    a few squares dark chocolate, less than half a bar needed for thin layer (optional)**

    Method
    1.Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, almond butter and salt in a food processor
    2.Pulse briefly, about 10 seconds
    3.In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil over very low heat,
    4.Remove coconut oil from stove, stir sweeteners and vanilla into oil
    5.Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a coarse paste
    6.Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish
    7.Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens
    8.In a small saucepan, melt chocolate over very low heat, stirring continuously
    9.Spread melted chocolate over bars; return to refrigerator for 30 minutes, until chocolate hardens
    10.Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars and serve



    ** Come on, half a bar? I used a whole bar and it was a thin layer. A half a bar would be like painting on a taste of chocolate. I used 85% and it was awesome.

    The bars are SO filling. You really only need a small one to hit the spot and keep you there. So delish. I think I would process the almonds a bit more though, they were rather large still. The crunch is very satisfying though. Reminds me of a supercharged version of those peanut butter rice krispie squares with chocolate on them, yk? Mm!!

    Default Yogurt Lemon Pancakes

    Cat Beard, here is the recipe you wanted:

    _Yogurt Lemon Pancakes_

    1 1/2 c of flour
    1t each of baking powder and baking soda
    1/2t salt
    2 eggs
    2 c plain yogurt (I use 1%)
    1t of vanilla
    2t of grated lemon rind
    2T melted butter

    In a large bowl, whisk together flouer, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl whisk in eggs; then yogurt, vanilla, lemon rind and butter. Pour over dry ingredients. Stir together until blended but with small lumps.

    Let stand for 10-15 minutes ***this is the key***

    Heat griddle over medium heat. Pour 1/4 c of batter for each pancake. Cook for 2 min until bubbly then turn and cook for about 30 sec.

    Makes 12 pancakes so I usally double the recipe and have leftovers.

    The best pancakes ever!
