I've been trying out new recipes (thanks to Pinterest) for all sorts of things. And here are two of the latest.
Homemade Granola Bars:
So my sister had sent me the recipe to these "Super Speedy, No Bake Omega-3 Vegan Snack Bars". And she made them last summer when I was up visiting. I've had most of the stuff in my house to make my own and just haven't done it. Well there is a link in this post to another granola bar recipe: "5 Minute No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bars", and I chose to make those.
I did not have any brown rice syrup though. And in the original recipe, he uses agave syrup, so I figured I could substitute it. Um...nope. It was the only substitution I made, plus leaving out the chia seeds because I didn't have them. Let me say that these were really really yummy. I ate them out of the pan, but the agave I think wasn't sticky enough, so my bars didn't really hold together (also why I ate them out of the pan). I will make them again and try maple syrup maybe or buy the brown rice syrup.
A couple months ago we bought popsicle molds and have used them just by pouring 100% juice into them for P. She LOVES them. Her typically post dinner question now is can she have a popsicle. But my plan has been to make my own popsicles not just using juice. And so I stumbled across this recipe from Jamie Oliver for Yogurt Pops. I made mine with blueberries, and they are YUMMY!! Definitely be making these again and so healthy too!
