Anyone else really start suffering when the weather changes?? Fall has slowly been trickling in over here in Philadelphia, and I can just feel my body trying to fight off a cold. I’ve been loading up on whole foods and golden milk, but would love to hear from y’all in the comments below with any other immune-booster suggestions!

Speaking of whole foods, I recently discovered Thunderbird Real Food Bars and let me just tell you: I’m obsessed. The food bars are made from simple ingredients, with no crazy additives so you can feel good about consuming. (This isn’t a sponsored post, I’m just that much of a fan.)

In the spirit of saving money, I decided to recreate one of my fave snacks from their Fruit & Nut line. They taste almost like fig newtons and carrot cake had babies.  I ate everything I made almost immediately, so I’ll certainly be experimenting with this more! Hope you enjoy!

  1. I have a magic bullet, so I blended each ingredient separately, then combined and pulsed them together. I find that doing so made it pretty easy to eyeball measure everything into equal amounts. If you have a food processor you can likely combine everything from the start!
  2. Take the mixture and roll into balls. (Good luck trying not to eat every one you create.)
  3. Pop into the fridge to chill, then eat!

Depending how much you make (because everything is equal parts, you can basically adjust en masse) , you can also line a baking sheet and press out the mixture into bars!

    Yum! Looks like a great way to work some veggies into snack time. I also like that there’s no refined sugar, other than a little chocolate (because who I am kidding, I could never give up chocolate).

    I’m constantly looking for something good to do with Dates. This is a great idea. I bet the sweetness in the dates and the crunchiness of the carrots pair really well!
