Lemon Lavender Bars

20140325-182303.jpg
These snack bars were a ‘mom and daughter’ creation over spring break. Aleyah has really become accustomed to finding her way around the kitchen, and it was fun to be able to work on this together. Since she loves the scent of lavender (and it’s growing in our garden), I decided to let her taste it and here is what we came up with:

Lemon Lavender Bars

  • 1 cup almonds

  • 1 cup golden raisins

  • 1/4 cup ground flax

  • 1 lemon, Juice zest

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 2/3 cup whole oats

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1 Tablespoon honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lavender

Place almonds, raisins, and flax into a bowl. Zest and then juice lemon and add to the bowl. Pour in water and allow to sit for about 30 minutes for almonds to soften. Place the almond mix into a food processor and process until almost completely smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and process again until just mixed. Add a tablespoon of water at a time if needed to keep it moving in the processor. Line an 8X8 pan with wax paper. Pour mixture into pan and gently press to fill the pan. Place in fridge for at least 1 hr before slicing and serving.
