Chocolate, Almond, And Walnuts Energy Bars



These are gluten-free Chocolate, Almond, And Walnuts Energy Bars. These irresistible bars are made with dates, cocoa powder, almond butter, almond meal, and toasted walnuts. In this recipe, I used some lightly toasted walnuts, so the bars have a nice crunch and nutty taste to it. So, do try this healthy alternative to your regular brownies.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
