Try Trio! (and a recipe)

Trio is one of the few bars I like that has no chocolate in it. It is vegan and gluten free, about 220 calories and costs 99 cents at my market. It comes in 4 flavors – cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, and tropical fruit. I’ve not tried the tropical flavor, but all the berry flavors are delicious.

A couple of commenters on my last post asked for the recipe for the bread I made, so here it is:

Buttermilk Wheat Bread (bread machine)
(adapted from Better Homes and Gardens)

1 cup sour nondairy milk (1 T. cider vinegar added to milk, stirred, and left to stand 5 minutes)
¼ cup water
1 T. canola oil
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 cups bread flour
1 T. sugar
1 T. wheat gluten
¼ cup finely chopped toasted nuts or seeds
¾ t. salt
1 packet active dry yeast

Put in bread machine as directed and bake on basic cycle.

I've been to the farmers market this morning and am getting a start on tomorrow's Taco Dinner. The chili peppers are making me sneeze like crazy!

Have a great weekend!

Those trio bars look & sound great! I love that you can still really "see" their ingredients!

Your sneezing comment made me smile. I lived with a family in Guadalajara, Mexico for a summer during grad school & I remember when they would roast chiles - we literally had to get out of the house, everyone's eyes were watering & we were sneezing... it was like a toxic zone, but oh so good!

Those bars look nothing like the bars I have encountered before.

I look forward to drooling over your next meal :P

Wow, this bar looks great. I far cry from the candy bars I ate as a kid (thank goodness!).
