EASY COCONUT & HONEY ENERGY BITES

March 25, 2019

I am firmly dedicated to easy breakfasts because in the morning there is so much to do right away. So I have loved making these the night before and storing them in the fridge to pop out for people when they need a little something. And it is always shocking how filling you find just one or two of them.

You can actually put them in the freezer as well and they stay soft for eating. They are our utility snack, breakfast, and tasty enough to even be a dessert.

This was my first time experimenting with using wildflower honey and it is SO PLEASANT. For this recipe I used sioux honey – a raw and unfiltered honey you can find in most grocery stores or purchase online. This honey is a product of the usa and helps support local beekeepers and the pollination efforts beekeepers provide for all fruits and veggies. ALSO IT SMELLS SWEETLY OF FLOWERS, AS IF HONEY COULDN’T ALREADY NOT BE MORE CHARMING.

Easy Coconut & Honey Energy Bites
Makes 20 energy bites

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 and 1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup honey (I use aunt sue’s raw & unfiltered honey)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Pulse oats and coconut in a blender for about 20 seconds, until coarsely chopped. Add honey, peanut butter, and salt to blender and mix for about 20 more seconds. Chill dough in freezer for 10 minutes.

Roll dough into 1 and 1/2 inch balls.

To dip in chocolate, microwave chocolate chips on 50% power for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip balls into chocolate and place on a lined baking sheet or cutting board. Chill in fridge until chocolate is firm.

THINKING ABOUT THE SPRING OF 2019

March 21, 2019

This post is part of a series I do to write important things I need to tell you about and a mix of homemaker stuff. And let’s be honest, sometimes popular culture BECAUSE I HAVE THOUGHTS. I love doing things by the seasons, so I share one that often. There are some re-occuring categories such as: “netflix-ing,” “unpopular opinion,” “all is vanity,” “into it!,” “good at target,” and “I am not tech-y, but.”

good at targetTARGET is just slaying with this decorative bowl. This would BE the centerpiece I’ve been looking for on our island if it were a color/pattern. Can’t do white for there. Maybe it still could be. Is there a way to DIY paint ceramics?

fellowship-ing: love this little idea for a soup group.

babies, always: I haven’t ever used a bassinet with any of our children, but will someone who is a bassinet person PLEASE BUY THIS and use it for me.

unpopular opinion: I loved reading this book, you who? by rachel jankovic. It’s a way better girl, wash your face that doesn’t insult the female intelligence.

i’m not tech-y, but: This tapestry as art completely stopped me in my tracks. AND THEN I found out it was also covering up a tv and I stood up and slow clapped.

pretty utilitarian things!: I needed another humidifier and found this refreshingly unoffensive looking one on amazon prime for just $35!

hydration nation: my husband had a goal to drink more water and he bought this three liter water bottle for $10 and IMMEDIATELY was able to easily drink 100 ounces a day. I think there’s something about having a bottle that you don’t have to refill that makes it easier to do. You can just have the mindset, I finish this one and then I’m done.

husbandry: also this sauce my husband couldn’t get enough of. It will change you.

into it!: a smart way to walk with a child while pushing a stroller!

insta life: my favorite new to me account I discovered is megan schlachtenhaufen’s @undecorated_home. I think she has the best basement before and after I have ever seen. Maybe one of the best before and afters I’ve seen period. She has completely inspired us to tackle our basement, maybe this summer.

APPLE PIE OATMEAL (IN THE SLOW COOKER!)

March 18, 2019

This is a very cozy, something special for a holiday or just a pleasant Saturday breakfast. It’s very easy to make an enormous batch in the crock pot to prepare some yummy breakfast for a group. Or a batch made and reheated for the weekday grind too!

Imagine the feel of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal packs, and then actually forget imagining that because this is much fresher and better tasting and way more APPLE PIE for breakfast feels.

Wow and “oatmeal buffet” just crossed my mind too. Like, making a huge pot and then having lots of different toppings out to choose from.

Apple Pie Oatmeal (in the Slow Cooker!)
Serves five to six

4 cups old fashioned oats
5 apples, cubed
2 cups water
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fresh apples, diced
Granulated sugar
Cinnamon
Pecans, chopped

Place oats, apples, water, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt in the slow cooker. Cook on high for 2-4 hours or low for 4-6 hours, stirring hourly. Top with additional fresh apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and pecans.
