National Toasted Almond Bar Day

"The word of the Lord came to me: 'What do you see, Jeremiah?' 'I see the branch of an almond tree,' I replied." - Jeremiah 1:11

It's National Toasted Almond Bar Day!

Some food holidays I just smile, shrug, and go along with. But this - National Toasted Almond Bar Day - seems like a definite stretch. Like someone felt slighted that their favorite, and totally-obscure-to-everybody-but-their-family, dessert wasn't recognized somehow.

So, I celebrated with this amazing vegan, gluten-free roasted almond, pepita, and soybean bar. What? Toasted and roasted are kind of the same... right?

(In all seriousness, if you want to make a toasted almond bar baked good, there are plenty of recipes online to guide you. I'm just perfectly content with how I celebrated!)

Happy National Toasted Almond Bar Day!
