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!
APPLE CINNAMON BARS
1 cup Old Fashioned oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped almonds
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.
