Cinnamon Cranberry Confections

A new Larabar Ball for you to try!


Imagine the yummy goodness of a date and nut roll (if you can! not many people have them anymore!) -- without the butter and sugar!

Cinnamon Cranberry Confections

1/3 c walnuts
1/4 c almonds
1/3 c raisins
1/8 c cranberries
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Follow directions in Brownie Bites or go the Skinny Mints link to read more about how nutritious these treats are, as well as a recommendation for a food processor that is great for these treats, as well as for making baby food out of whatever you parents enjoy! We once even blended up a sub sandwich for our oldest child when she was still too little for sandwiches!

Let me take a minute to highlight some key benefits of cinnamon and cranberries!

Cinnamon
This sweet herb's main claim to fame is its ability to help stabilize blood sugar. This is not only beneficial to people with diabetes, but to anyone who ever experiences that crash and born that comes with a sugar high!

Cranberries
These berries have been found to prevent and significantly improve the condition of urinary tract infections! Effectiveness has come to challenge even the mostly widely utilized antibiotic drugs. They may also prevent cancer!
