Almonds, walnuts and raisins are whirled in a blender then pressed and cut into bars.
- 2 cups raisins
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 2 teaspoons almond extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 200F. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, pulsing on and off until raisins and nuts are finely chopped (don’t puree or mixture will be too sticky).
- Press firmly into a 10 X 4-inch rectangle on a parchment lined baking sheet and cut into ten 1-inch wide bars.
- Separate to allow air to circulate and bake for 1 hour; let cool and wrap individually.
Variation: Add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 ½ tablespoons honey.
