Why I won't get rich as a blogger? Well, because I don't exactly blog haha.
But also, because that's my idea of a title. And this is my idea of food photography:
Those are all that was left by the time I got one, which was three days later. I invented them while fasting-- fasting improves cooking! :-)
They smelled pretty good.
The kids reported that they were "okay, but maybe not that great."
Now that I just got to eat one-- I LOVE THEM. They're exactly, perfectly what I wanted them to be when I threw things into a bowl-- yet in a way, very surprising! Heavy and dense with nutrition, as I had planned, but not gooey at all. When you bite into them it's as if they have the consistency of a chewy oat bar but the texture of a crispy one. My mouth was pleasantly confused :-)
They're barely sweet, just sweet enough to be palatable. Exactly what you'd want to bring along on a hike!
My secondary goal was to use the cheapest ingredients possible-- cheapest as in "least expensive", it's raw honey, nested eggs, organic flour etc. Most nutrition for the least cost, is what we're going for.
5 c oats
1 c flour
1 c honey
1/2 c oil
2 tsp baking soda
2 TBSP vanilla
2 c raisins
Okay. Mix and bake :-)
