Long time I didn’t write for the blog, of course it is getting boring but I was too busy. I was sick for one week, I am spending a lot of time in the garden, seeding seeds, harvesting, planning some special days in the garden and get rid of the weed. Organizing some little parties.
But for 3 weeks now I am learning guitar from out a book and it really enjoys and relaxes me. I started with a classical book and now I am going to learn some blues (because a friend of my is learning blues with the bass guitar), of course I am far from a good guitar player but I really like it, and I am making time for it and a lot of progress. This year I want to take singing lessons also. I think singing is a good way of expressing yourself, get rid of stress and so on. Will I be relaxt more?
I really was relaxt about the date bars I made (I read the backside of a supermarket bar and made it my own), I don’t have a food-dehydrator so I finished them by oven. But if you have one it’s raw! It’s a great way of eating some nice stuff when you don’t have a lot of time, you can keep them a long time in the fridge, today our friends liked the taste.
for approx.30 banana date bars
225 gram of dried dates
140 gram of banana
125 gram of oat flakes
50 grams of walnuts
40 gram of raisins
20 grams of pear juice
2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder (maybe you like more?)
5 teaspoons of hemp seeds
a food processor
an oven or food dehydrator
an oven dish
a wooden spoon to spread the dough in the oven dish
How to make the bars!
Get the food processor and mix all the ingredients together till it’s like a dough (if you like you can make it more crunchy, don’t mix it too long then!)
Get a squared oven dish and put in a layer of baking paper. Get the wooden spoon and the mixture, poor the mixture into the oven dish and spread it out ( like 1 cm thick) Of course you can make the decision how thick you like.
Put the oven dish into the oven, I baked it for 40 minutes on the lowest temperature, just look if the bars are more compact after the 40 minutes otherwise you put them longer in the oven. You think they are ready cut them in the sizes you like. Be creative and also experiment with other ingredients like cashews or chia seeds, berries and so on!
enjoy the quick snack very healthy and delicious.
