In addition to the pure desire to feed the family, there is something else, fascinatingly special in the process of cooking. For me, the time spent in the kitchen sometimes serves as a real meditation and relaxation. Whether I am baking and decorating cookies or in a fit of inspiration, coming up with a new recipe, cooking can be a real replacement for the art studio. At the same time, I prefer simple recipes, which do not take more than 15 minutes in preparation. My new Vegan Dry Fruit Bars is exactly one of these recipes, which I am so excited to share today.
In our kitchen, these bars appear with a noticeable periodicity. Healthy, moderately sweet, fragrant, and surprisingly easy to prepare, they do not contain any eggs or refined sugar. As a sweetener, there is coconut sugar, dried fruit, and a little bit of organic honey. Rye flour combined with an apple and cinnamon gives the bars an additional unique aroma and piquancy.
It can be an excellent option for either relaxing weekend breakfasts or a weekday snack for a rushing student.
Making these bars on the weekend will provide an excellent breakfast for several weekdays. It saves lots of time.

- ½ cup chopped walnuts

I love to serve these bars warm with a spoonful of yogurt, nut butter, and berries. Enjoy your little experiments in the kitchen!
