Maple Walnut Bars

Serves: 9

Happy Tuesday! I know for many of us it feels like a Monday after the long weekend! I hope, if you did have a holiday this past weekend, that you had fun with your friends and family! Since it is a short week it ought to go by very quickly!

Well, I can officially say that fall is in full swing here in New Jersey! Yesterday morning when I got up it was 39 degrees outside! Yes, 39! I couldn’t believe how cold it was! We didn’t get over 56 for the entire day; or on Sunday for that matter! It’s a good thing I had my hats, scarves and mittens dry cleaned 2 weeks ago! And the Uggs have officially come out of hiding! Although, I will never like 39 degrees, ever, I do like the temperatures in the high 50′s-low 60′s during the day. I get to wear my comfy sweaters that have been tucked away! I’m definitely a comfy clothes kind of girl!

Today I am bringing you another bar recipe that is perfect for an on-the-go snack! I have to admit that mine barely lasted long enough to ‘go’ anywhere because I ‘somehow’ managed to eat most all of them within about 36 hours! Ooops! Good thing I was in the middle of marathon training! ;) I guess that can speak for how delicious they were!

Maple Walnut Bars

Well, as I mentioned above, I ate all of these bars in about 36 hours, so I will have to say they are DELICIOUS!! They didn’t even last long enough for the boyfriend to try them! Yes, I know, this seems to be a trend lately! But ‘you snooze, you lose’ ;) They were perfect as a snack that I threw into my gym bag on my way out the door! They also tasted amazing with some sweetened greek yogurt and diced apple on top as dessert or a healthy breakfast! ;) Plus the nutrition stats are AWESOME!!
