grind nuts to your preferred consistency--some like fine, some chunky
1 egg, beaten
1 1/c cups finely ground nuts (I use mostly almonds and/or walnuts
cinnamon to taste (1/2 tsp works for me)
3-6 tbs honey or agave; alternately, 1/4 c sugar or coconut sugar
vanilla or almond extract (if desired)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I use dark), cranberries or a mixture of both (YUM!)
Beat the egg, then add the nuts.
Mix well before adding other ingredients (mixture should hold together without being too sticky); add nuts if you need it less gooey, honey or egg if you need it to hold together more.
Turn into greased pyrex pan (square for thicker bars; 6x12 rectangle for thinner).
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Cool before cutting.
As with all of my recipes, PLAY AROUND! Sometimes I sprinkle shaved coconut on top. You can add raisins instead of chocolate, use different nuts...make it with bananas and apples as a breakfast bar--Use your imaginations!
These bar cookies are part of the intuitive cooking class recipes--batter can be scooped as heaping tablespoonfuls and baked on parchment paper (I would then change the cooking time to 12-15 mins)--Play around until you are comfortable--you won't go wrong--just don't overcook them.
