Apple Cinnamon Nut Balls and 20% Off Dessert Book Sale!
This weekend J and I drove home to pick up the boat, ski-doo and some other things we couldn't manage to squeeze into the trailer and truck 2 weeks ago when we moved to the city four hours away. There's nothing quite like coming "home", and especially back to the lake and forest. It's something we will miss greatly being in the city. With all the rain it's extremely green around here right now - but on the downside its been raining the entire time we've been here.
This was moving day. The trailer was a sight for sore eyes, lol. You can't even imagine how much stuff is crammed into there. The photo doesn't do it any justice but there are couches, table, chairs, dresser, air conditioner, coffee table, bedside tables, bedding supplies, kitchen stuff... and the list goes on. Almost everything we own.
Before leaving on Thursday, I whipped up a batch of these balls to bring along for the long ride and popped the rest in the freezer for future snacks. It's like ball form of a Larabar. You could certainly shape these into bars if you like.
Before I get to the recipe, I've got to tell you about my ebook special running for the next seven days in celebration of summer's arrival! Get a special package deal of my three most popular books for 20% off!
