This is a quick snack with a 3:1 protein to carb ratio, but you can adjust to suit your dietary needs.

  • 1 oz. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1 tbs. nut butter, any kind, organic
  • 1/8 c. raisins, organic
  • 1 tsp. milk, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured cows, organic
  • 1 tsp. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic

This is a very variable recipe! I'm using walnuts because I've read a lot of good press on their effects on everything from cholesterol to blood sugar, but you could use other nuts if you prefer. Any nut butter is fine, but salted will taste better. Grind the walnuts to make it mix better, and put all ingredients together in a bowl or plastic bag (my shoulder is damaged and stirring thick things hurts) to mix. If you like, save some ground nuts aside, and roll the bars in nuts to make the outside less sticky. I make these in bigger batches (x 12 or so) and store them in the fridge. If you love chocolate, add a little cocoa powder to the mix or coating. If raisins are boring, try other dried fruit.
