"My little taste tester" is my muse when it comes to making healthy goodies that we an eat on a regular basis, with whole ingredients and no additives.
Homemade, healthy snacks are the way to go.
This is a recipe for a no-bake, raw bar. Easy to make and simply delicious.
Cran-Goji Berry Bliss Bars
1 1/2 cups Nuts or Seeds (walnuts, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts)

1/4 cup Goji Berries, soaked for 20-30 minutes

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until chunky cookie dough texture is achieved.
Press into a parchment paper-lined pan or cookie sheet.
