My super picky eater, Ethan, finally tried a GF Boulder Bar this week. I was nervous since he usually only eats my GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites or Papa's Choc Chip Bar. But, my husband encouraged me to go ahead. We opened the package and within 5 minutes, Ethan was asking for ANOTHER Boulder Bar. I had to ask him "honey, what did you say"? It turns out that he LOVES these now. So tonight I made up fresh Boulder Bars...except I substituted dried cherries for the cranberries, omitted the almonds (Nut Free) at school, and I didn't have any sunflower seeds at home. Instead of threw in some extra oats and they came out great.
Next week I have a meeting with Autism Speaks to discuss my ideas to create a Helping Hands Bakery Vocational Training Center. I'm so excited!! More to come!! Also, I'll be getting ready for my meeting with a Social Venture Fund group. Wish us luck!! It's my dream to provide people with autism and all types of abilities with job training and jobs where they can be as self reliant as possible! Everyone has gifts to give. Have a great night! Bridget
