    I love these types of recipes. I’m always looking for new (and healthy) versions of snack bars and travel treats. This one looks perfect. Thanks!

    @Melissa, Thanks, Melissa!! It is quite yummy. Joe thinks if I drizzle them with chocolate I could market them. Men. They can eat anything!

    Such a good Momma! These bars look yum Amy. Canada is really cautious about introducing nuts so I waited too long. My kids won’t eat them unless it’s pulsed or in a nut butter. I’ll keep trying :)

    @Maggie, I waited a year and then went for it. So glad I did – it’s the easiest way to get fat into him. He likes peanut butter the best, which I have been buying organic and freshly ground. Yesterday I was eating walnuts and he wanted some. He actually chewed them and swallowed. I was a little surprised, but he loves brussels sprouts so maybe I shouldn’t be.

    Amy,
    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe ( love the way you wrapped the bars) and the name of the book.. I have two little grandchildren who both love fruits and veggies, but aren’t big eaters. Both are underweight.. so we are looking for healthy snacks too.. Keep them coming..

    @Judee @ Gluten Free A-Z, Ha! I get grilled by our pediatrician (whom I adore!!) every time we’re in there for a well visit about how I feed Nate. She isn’t concerned about his weight but just making sure I’m doing everything I can. Which is why I love her!! And, I was a skinny little kid too. So, I think Nate gets it honest. You will see more healthy kid snacks here. Guaranteed.

    You are lucky he can eat nuts. For example, in this recipe I can’t eat the nuts or the apple unless it is an organic apple. Sort of negates the recipe. It’s always something…….

    @Sandtruck, I use organic apples. Always!! And YES!! So grateful he can eat nuts because he can’t have dairy.

    I always try to focus on what I can eat instead of what I can’t eat. It makes it much easier for me to take care of myself.

    Any suggestions for those of us without a food dehydrator?

    @Goodeats, Try your oven on low for 12 or so hours. I have a bread proof setting on my oven that holds at 100 degrees Fahrenheit but I think it would take longer than 24 hours. You might think about getting a food dehydrator. I love my Excalibur! Totally worth the money.

    This bar sounds so wonderful! I would appreciate it if you could post the nutritional value. I’m diabetic and live by numbers!

    @Dixie Lee Bumgarner, Where do you typically get nutritional information, Dixie? I am not certified to provide this information as I have no formal degree in nutrition. As such, I don’t feel comfortable doing so because, like you said, you life by numbers.

    what a lucky little boy Nate is:) I used to make my daughter some fruit balls of a similar consistency for her school lunch box, we called them sweet treats, and all enjoyed them! I must get a dehydrator!

    @christine, I love my Excalibur – it was a little pricey but it’s worth it. It work so well. I’ve learned with kitchen appliances that it’s smarter to buy quality and spend more than have the darn thing break or not work properly.

    I can’t eat apples, but this recipie looks so good. What other fruit can I use?

    @Nancy, Pears might work well.

    These look and sound so perfect Amy. You’re making me think I need a dehydrator – ah, if only I had the space!

    These were yummy. I made a half recipe as I didn’t want to use up so many of my walnuts if we didn’t end up liking these, but we did! We will make these again for sure. Thanks for the recipe.
