Happy Rapture Day! Hope you’re enjoying this lovely Saturday. I spent much of the morning and afternoon checking out apartments. Since our lease isn’t up until July 1st, we have a little time to take a look at what’s out there. Today’s odyssey was really just to determine what we can get in our price range in a couple different neighborhoods.
A stop for green juice was required partway through. I am not built for going 6 hours between meals!
When I got home, I was wiped out. Luckily, lunch of salad and leftover hummus and pita was easily thrown together. Blood sugar restored, I set to making a batch of larabar-esque energy bars. In the spirit of today supposedly being Judgment Day or whatever, I decided to be festive and make them into “Doomsday Date Balls.”
- 3/4 cup cashews
- 10 dates
- a few dried cherries
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- Pulse cashews, dates, and dried cherries in a food processor until tacky and sticky.
- Add cocoa powder and vanilla and continue to pulse until a dough forms.
- Roll dough into small balls (I made 8) and refrigerate.
