With Emma starting preschool, breakfast around here has been hectic.
I’m not used to leaving by 8:20!
I had picked up some mini blueberry muffins from Publix, but I went through two boxes of them in two weeks!
So, to Pinterest I went and found a few different recipes that I liked.
I wanted to use whole wheat flour.
I didn’t have any plain Greek yogurt to use.
So this is what ended up being my recipe:
Who does’t love a good granola bar?
My oldest daughter recently took a liking to them, which I was thrilled about!
They’re a healthy snack and one more thing she’ll actually eat! SCORE!
Except, I was paying $5 for 5 granola bars. Yikes.
And she would eat like one a day.
So pretty much every week, I was buying another box of granola bars.
I decided I wanted to try to make my own. How bad could it be? I had made granola before, so why not granola bars?
I scoured the Interwebs for recipes.
I wanted something with chocolate chips.
But still chewy.
Must be toddler approved.
I ended up using parts and pieces of a few different recipes. Here’s what I came up with:
I have been dreaming about food since I was on the 3-Day Refresh.
I took out a whole chicken to cook on Sunday night and we didn’t eat it until Thursday night! LOL
For our chicken, I cooked it on a roasting pan with a rack (so it didn’t sit in the juices and got all soggy)
I wanted it to be crispy!
After being on the Refresh for 3 days (WITH NO COFFEE), I couldn’t wait to have my coffee the morning after…
When I first started drinking coffee, I was in college and it was Caramel Frappuccino (with extra caramel!)
After college, I drank it with creamer and sugar.
When I went “low-carb,” I used Splenda or another artificial sweetener.
After a few years, I started going more organic and more all-natural, especially when I was pregnant, I became acutely aware that what I was putting in my body went right the the baby.
Here’s how I make my coffee every morning:
10 oz. organic brewed coffee (I use our Keurig)
1 tsp organic coconut oil
1/2 tsp agave nectar
1/4 cup almond milk
Blend! And Enjoy!
