Tahini Raisin Bars


2014/03/05 by nikkiledford

During a rainy day last week…

A Rainy, Rainy Day…


… I was in the mood to bake!

There was just one problem. I have no oven.

So I made some tasty raw bars that have an “oatmeal raisin” kind of flavor. These definitely have that “comfort food” feel to them. Pair with a cup of tea and you’ll be cozy in no time.

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
