These are tasty and make a fun and nutrition- packed treat for everyone. My toddler loves them, and I make them differently just about every time. I cook food from my heart, so I basically measure only about 50% of the time. Here’s my creation:
Here’s what’s in them:
Almonds 1 cup
Dried apricots 1 overstuffed cup
Rolled oats 1 cup
Almond extract 1/4 tsp
Goji berries: handful
Dried mulberries: handful
Golden flax: small amount
Unsweetened coconut shreds added during rolling.
So the pictures above are from the batch I made today. They all have different levels of beauty. This might not be my most pristine group of yums, but I know they are yummy and so does everyone who tries them! If I were doing professional food photos, I would have probably been more selective and taken my time and used a filter.

I signed up for posting daily. I don’t know why. I am already quite busy, and I probably won’t post every day, but it sure seemed like fun to try to make a post everyday about something random. Random is my style for this, I like to have some free flow and no pressure type of activities, so maybe you will see a lot more of Fiestaestrellas in November! WE shall see!
Sign ups are here:
I’ll have to get the banner and come back and paste it on this post, at some other time.
Tis the season for blogging, holidays, fun, and writing! 🧡

They look delicious to me. Apricots are my favorite. 🙂 Happy Pepper season!
I’m glad they looked delicious to you! Yay, they are really good, and my daughter still loves them!
Happy Pepper Season!! 🙂
Yum! I love the variety of mixing things up. Usually only measure the first or second time I try a recipe.
That’s interesting to know, JoAnna. I find myself really deviating from recipes and adding and substituting to the point of making something new. It’s a lot of fun when I’m in the flow.
These look and sound yummy Ka, thanks for sharing; I’m going to give them a try!
I hope you love them as much as we do!
Those look really good. Yesterday I made peanut butter bites. Real peanut butter, honey, oats, protein powder and a bit of water. Very good for energy!
That sounds yummy, too!
Hi Ka! These look so yummy 🙂
I have often thought about doing one of these challenges…perhaps one day 😉
I know you are so busy…hope things are going well for you…stay safe ❤
Thank you, Lorrie! This appears to be the way I’m dealing with the “so much,” right now. I’m adding more of the fun of blogging. I hope you enjoy these apricot yums if you try them! All my best wishes your way 💗
In case you are interested now, you can even sign up for this challenge at any time, just jump in at the link above. It’s a non-pressure sort of thing, and I know you have so much to share! I love your blog! There’s also always next year. Xo
I could look at it like “if not now…when?” but it won’t work this time. And thats okay. I am getting much better at rolling with the waves and not putting extra pressure on myself. That is part of the self-care i afford myself now. I will look forward to your posts 😊 I always do! Stay well my friend…and have fun with the daily nlogging! 💜
