I had the chance this month to bake from Margaret’s blog, Tea and Scones for The Secret Recipe Club. I chose to make these healthy treats, Walnut and Dried Cherry Bars (with a little chocolate drizzle—my addition). The recipe is from Ellie Krieger from the Food Network and was part of one of the many baking groups Margaret belongs to.
These bars are good—anything from Ellie Krieger is, because it always tastes really good and is healthy! I just ever so slightly changed the recipe. After baking the bars, Ellie has you spread a little apricot preserves on the still warm bars. I didn’t have any preserves, so I decided these needed a little something on top—so I drizzled them with a little melted dark chocolate (still healthy, right?!). You can get the link for the recipe above, as I made them just as written except for the chocolate drizzle. I actually left some of them without the drizzle since I’ll be heading out to see my parents in Idaho tomorrow for the week and I thought I’d take some of the bars to my mom, who doesn’t eat chocolate.
