This is the recipe for homemade Alaskans state fair meal.
The ingredients are a mix of whole grains and nuts, and they’re all easy to make, but you’ll need to make a few adjustments to get it right.
First, if you don’t have a stand mixer, you’ll want to use a mixer.
The mixer is great for whisking up the ingredients and it can be a great substitute for a stand-by mixer, but I prefer the simplicity of a blender.
The main ingredients are almonds, pistachios, raisins, pecans, sunflower seeds, and walnuts.
If you’re making this for a friend, make sure to get some peanut butter and/or almond butter for the nuts.
To make the almonds, add the almonds to a food processor and process until finely ground.
If the almonds are too hard, you can use a mandoline to break up the nuts into smaller pieces.
I made the recipe with half a cup of nuts.
Next, add in some peanut sauce, and stir until smooth.
I used Trader Joe’s peanut butter, which is very rich and tastes great.
This peanut sauce makes it taste like the food you’re eating is a special treat.
It’s a great way to give the whole meal a good mix of flavor.
Next up is the raisines, which I added to the food processor as well.
The raisinis are not actually raisin seeds, but rather a mixture of raisined peanuts, sunflowers, and raisinos, which are the nuts that grow in Alaska.
I added a few tablespoons of peanut butter to the mixture to help the nut mixture stick to the processor.
Finally, add a little bit of chopped walnuts and cinnamon to the peanut sauce.
You can also add a dash of vanilla or chocolate chips to the mix to give it a chocolate flavor.
To finish, you add in the pecan.
To keep it fresh, I left it out of the recipe.
To ensure a nice consistency, you want to add more raisine to the pecan mixture and then add it back in.
This helps to give them a nice, crisp texture.
Once the nuts are all mixed together, you’re ready to eat!
The whole meal tastes like it was made for one.
You may need to adjust the amount of nuts you add if you’d like to add in a few more.
You can eat this in a variety of ways, including at home.
It also makes a great snack!
