I hope you have had a good Friday 13th? As for me, I usually find this to be a surprisingly good day, today was a little mixed though, BUT Imma gawna see some friends and head over for Clothes Swap Part 2, and I am really looking forward to it!
But here! I found these on Cathleen's blog, a Taste of Madness (always reminds me of the Muse song, by the way!) and I noticed that I had all the ingredients I needed to make them - and so I did!
I had some trouble along the way with pressing the mixture down and getting it to set properly, but that wasn't really that big a deal, for the rest of the oaty-nutty goodness I simply rolled into marbles, et voila! Power-snack ready, for whenever you are!
Honey Nut Snack Marbles
(Makes 8 small bars or marbles)
2 topped tbsp honey
A splash of water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup almonds, dry roasted (I used half whole ones, and half ground ones, plus some leftover cashew nuts)
1 cup oats
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
- Start by heating the honey and water up in a medium sized casserole, once hot but not boiling, add the remaining ingredients and take off the heat. Mix well until combined.
- Now, you have one out of two options:
A) Roll into marbles
B) Get out a small square cake tin and line it with clingfilm, press the mixture firmly down and refrigerate for a little while. Cut into bars and keep them in an airtight container. They will keep for at least 5 days.
These are the perfect snack if you're on the go, in a hurry in the morning, or simply want a little something sweet to enjoy with your coffee or tea. My lovely flatmate highly approved of these, and I hope you will too!
Do you have any plans for the "big" day tomorrow? As for me, I think I have a date with my pyjamas, and I will most definitely be making Norwegian waffles!
