This meal is incredible. With half your daily fiber needs, low fat and sodium, and a generous helping of protein, you can be sure this is a great addition to a healthy vegan diet (or any healthy diet!). I have been longing to make a dish like this since enjoying the fantastic Moroccan Chicken Salad (sans chicken and egg) at California Pizza Kitchen. After taking a looksie through The Kind Diet, I found a couscous dish with a few similar ingredients. To top it all off, I found the most beautiful organic butternut squash at Sunflower Farmers Market and knew I had to do it justice. I suppose this will do ; )
After finishing off my Apricot Almond Energy Bars, I was set on making more. They were super filling, delicious, convenient snacks for my busy schedule. Then I noticed a small handful of dried cranberries taking up a whole mason jar in my pantry and I knew just how to use them. And that is how these indulgent vegan treats were born! They don't have the most impressive nutritional profile, however if you're choosing between this and a processed, sugary, non-vegan candy bar...this wins hands down!
I hope this shows you how versatile this recipe is, and allows you to create your ideal bar : )
