Being young men, Bard and Sigurd have appetites. They pay attention to food, so there is a fair amount of food mentioned in the book.
Their meals range from dried fish to banquets. Early in the story they visit a monastery and are honored with sweets.
I found a recipe for a Saxon style Apple Walnut cookie on the net and adopted it a bit.
1 cup dried apples 2 cups walnuts 2 tbs honey 4 eggs 2 tbs flour
Chop the apples and walnuts into small bits and mix in the eggs, honey and flour.
I put the whole mess into a food processor (I like the Chef's Rival chopper), and whirr until it looks reasonable.
Place the mixture on a greased baking pan in roughly 2-tablespoon clumps and bake for 15 min at 375 degrees (F).
The traditional recipe does not use flour. I think a little flour makes it hold together better.
