Newborn babies!

Well, newborn Apple Pie Babies that is.  That’s right, I was baby making last night!!  I loove Apple Pie flavored LaraBars, so after a quick visit to the LaraBar website I decided to try my hand at making them myself.  The ingredients listed were “dates, almonds, walnuts, dried apples, raisins and cinnamon”.  After a quick visit to CCV’s blog I decided to tailor her fudge baby recipe to meet my Apple Pie-lovin’ needs. 😆

Check those suckers out!!!  I omitted the walnuts and the results were Ah-Mazing!  Tasty little suckers and great for a pre-workout pep-up.

Apple Pie Babies (makes about 17 balls)

  • 1/2 c. dates (well-packed)
  • 2 tbsp black raisins
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 35 g. dried apples (about 1/3 c.)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/8 tsp ginger

Throw all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until everything is finely minced and forms a sticky dough when pinched together.  😉

A perfect treat for any Valentine!! 😛

    Wow! Those look just like apple pie larabars. Yum!
    Did they taste the same? (or better?!)

    They taste almost exactly the same, only a tad bit softer because I used fewer nuts than Larbar does. If you wanted to make them into bigger bars, I’d probably up the nuts though just so they would hold their shape well.

    Those look awesome, and really easy to make!
