I’m not always the kind of mother that I’d like to be.

Some days I’m not even close.

It’s not that I think I should be perfect. But there are days–like today–when I use words that I shouldn’t and silence where I should have used words.

Lucky for me, it’s almost Rosh Hashanah.

I’m a good enough mother to know when I need to ask forgiveness. A kind apology note helps. So do apple cinnamon forgiveness bars.

Looks like my apology worked.

Here’s to a sweet, happy and healthy new year to all of us!

1 cup Old Fashioned oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1T cinnamon
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped dried apples
1/2 cup raisins
1 flax seed egg (1T ground flax seed + 3T water. Let sit until thickens)
3/4 cup honey

Make your flax egg in a small bowl. Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly blended. Stir in the flax egg. Bake in an 8×8 pan at 350 for 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.

  1. In our family we take the asking forgiveness seriously. Giving something that you have actually worked on adds a deeper dimension. Wonderful idea.
