Meatballs

mmm, meatballs. These are great on the go and full of flavor if they’re hot or cold. You can chop them in a salad, top your noodles or fill your sandwich. They stay good all week so make a double batch and try them every-which-way. I used a pound of extra lean ground beef, but you could easily double this recipe. I should say that the amounts below are not exact, because I modified to find the right consistency. If your balls are sticking, add more wet, if they are slopping, add more oats – you know...

best tasting Power Bar with chocolate – GF

I am so happy about this power bar – and if it matters, it’s gluten free. It is mainly filled with healthy ingredients, but the taste is awesome!! Beware, you should cut these into squares right away so you don’t eat half the pan as soon as you pull them from the fridge. The original recipe came from http://www.elanaspantry.com/power-bars/ but I modified based on what I had at home and my lack of time. It is also perfect for summer since it’s No Bake =) These will be joining m every...

Stuffed Brownies

Okay, this is a cheater dessert in more than one way. There is nothing healthy about these and they are not made from scratch, but keep reading – they are SO good!!  I made a double batch so I could share. I found the recipe on Pinterest and thought about it for two whole days until I could make them myself. Use your favorite fudge brownie mix and follow the directions on the packages BUT leave out the water/milk. You will be replacing this liquid with a decadent substitute. Add 3/4 cup cookie dough ice...

Quick dish granola bars

We spent the weekend racing on Bird Ship and I was eating way to many packages granola bars. After day one, I got home and whipped up a batch of my own, much healthier version in a hurray. Because I was had limited time, I only wanted to use one pan so I made a smaller batch in a square pan. In a large pan, dry roast about 1/2 cup of each: slivered almonds pumpkin seeds (pepitas) flax seeds sunflower seeds shredded coconut (unsweetened) Also Dry roast 3 cups of large flake oats In a large bowl add 1.5 cups of...
