These come out perfect and are super easy to peel!
This is just as easy as the traditional Rice Krispie treats, but uses caramel in place of marshmallows and tastes much richer!! You can buy the caramel in 5 lb. blocks. I get mine at a Mennonite store, but it is also sold on Amazon.
These actually have more the consistency of muffins, but they are wonderful, regardless! I make them for me and our grandsons with raisins, but substitute chocolate chips for the raisins for my husband.
This is my new favorite breakfast and snack! I love the crunch of the homemade healthy granola with the creaminess and the tang of the yogurt and the freshness of the fruit! And it is very healthy and simple to make! In fact, it is not really even a recipe, but just photos and ingredients. You can make it however you like. Our grandsons (ages 9 and 11) tried it yesterday, and they loved it!
I make my own granola in a big batch and it keeps for a long time in a tightly sealed container. Here is the recipe:
If you choose to buy your granola instead, watch for any food allergens you may have. Most of them contain gluten.
Crepes are so versatile! They can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or a snack! This is a very good basic recipe that is based on the recipe from www.chef-in-training.com. I liked it better than the other recipes I tried, so I am sharing it here.
We had a Create Your Own Crepe bar for Mother’s Day. My favorite was this crepe with a cheesecake filling, some sliced strawberries and some mini chocolate chips. There are so many possibilities! Other options we offered were puddings (chocolate, French vanilla, banana), Whipped topping, Chocolate Sauce (it hardened and we couldn’t get it out of the bottle easily!), Blackberry Jam, cinnamon mixed with powdered sugar, and powdered sugar by itself. It turned out great! We also made some chocolate crepes, but I preferred these to the chocolate ones!
The batter can be made up a day or two ahead of time, and/or the crepes can be made up ahead of time and put back on the griddle for just a few seconds per side to reheat.
You can change this to include your favorite granola ingredients. The grandkids and I love this recipe! It makes a healthy snack that is quite filling. This will be a great snack to take with us on vacation.
This is not at all sweet, but my husband loves it! Of course, if you prefer it sweeter, add more brown sugar or honey!
A delicious, healthy snack that even the kids will love! This is wonderful as is, or change it up to make it your own. Add dried fruit, chocolate chips in place of the cacao nibs, or raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. Pistachios taste especially good in this also!
This is the ideal snack if you are following an alkalizing diet!
This granola is perfect for using in my Fruit and Yogurt Parfait: http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/fruit-yogurt-parfait/
This works great as a cold cereal with milk. It is also wonderful served on oatmeal for a little extra flavor and crunch:
This is a stove top recipe for cinnamon toasted almonds that is not too sweet, but is addictive!
