Fancy flavored and roasted almonds are pricey. but such good-for-you, delicious and filling snacks. The thing is, Mr Almond, I can zip you up in cocoa and coffee to munch on for a whole lot cheaper.
Jam is terrifying. It is the zombie movie of spreads. It can become undead and grow a bacterium that will kill you. I hope you are excited to make jam now.
I swear this one is not so hard, or murderous. There’s no 10 minutes of boiling Kerr jars or air-drying or anything like that – it’s a quick easy jam that makes enough for right this minute and maybe the next two weeks if you don’t get too greedy. Store in the fridge and if you have too much for you, it makes a great for-no-special-reason gift.
This isn’t a recipe for you. It’s for your best friend.

I am from a family of hungry bears. When we’re hungry, we get mean. I’ve learned that it’s always helpful to have a quick, healthy snack on-hand for those moments when you need food, now.
But these almond-cherry date bars are delicious even if you’re a normal person. They are great to-go snacks as they are light and travel well, so pack them in lunches or on a hiking trip. They are great crumbled into a bowl of almond milk for an easy on-the-go breakfast, great as an afternoon snack (with tea, especially!), and I bet they would be great swirled into ice cream or yogurt or topped with peanut butter.
