Dark Chocolate Chia Granola

Share

I do like a good granola mixed into my yogurt in the morning or as an afternoon snack, and this granola is perfect for that. It gives the yogurt a nice crunch. My boys will eat this granola by the handful. At least one of them will mix it into yogurt too.

The granola doesn’t form […]

Coconut Chocolate Chip Magic Granola Bars

Share

I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for the boys to eat. As snack foods go, these bars aren’t terrible. They’re still a sweet snack, but they’re preservative free, unlike many of the granola bars that you buy at the supermarket. Three out of the four boys liked these. My husband and I liked […]

When I toasted my coconut, I found that it browned unevenly, […]

Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

I love lentils and I love coconut.   And there’s nothing more perfect than a bowl of hot soup on a cold day.  This soup is very tasty with all of the spices that are in it and it’s a nice change from traditional lentil soups.   The spices and the basil really jazz up […]
