|Creme D'Argent rabbits at Flatland Farm. So sweet. What's prettier than bunnies?|
Energy Bars for Hungry Bunny Children
this is a recipe for human, not rabbit children-do not feed to real rabbits
2 cups Peanut Butter, any-we use salted crunchy just peanut peanut butter
1 cup sugar or other sweetener-I like honey if I have it (2/3 cup honey)
1/2 cup buckwheat groats, sometimes called Kasha, can substitute oats, millet, sesame seeds, or wheat germ
1/2 cup shredded coconut, plain not sweetened
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips so the kids will love 'em
1/4 cup peanuts
opt: 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
To be honest, I don't measure this out, so I'm trying here. I put in a handful each of the goodies and stir. If it doesn't hold together with all the add-ins, I just stir in another egg.
Simple enough for a kid to mix up all My-byself.
Roll into balls, put on a greased baking sheet and flatten each with the palm.
Or drop into small greased muffin tins by the spoonful.
Bake 350F 10 minutes or until beginning to turn golden.
When cooled, pop into a cookie tin. I pack a tin for Paul, because he loves them, tie a few handfuls up in a napkin for the picnic basket, and save a few for the next day. I often roll half the recipe and in parchment paper or a paper bag and freeze it for insta-NRG at a later date.
|This little guy is Creme-Champagne cross, and looks quite like a wild bunny with his Agouti coloring, but he will be much bigger than a cottontail when he grows up!|
Happy, of course, is Easter itself. More than happy--jubilant!
