Happy Mid-Week Everyone!
Craig left for Texas this morning, but we have a special weekend away planned, and I just can’t wait!! #2DaysUntilFriday
Last night, we went to the movies and saw The Boy.
I love a good scary movie every now and then, and this one definitely had a twist at the end I didn’t see coming. Poor Craig’s hand is probably numb today from my squeezing it so tightly at the theatre last night! If you’re looking for a jolt, this is your movie.
In other news, we all know I love cooking and baking…and trying to make either of those things as healthy as possible is one thing I love to be challenged with! So, this week, I made SuperMan Breakfast Bars with coconut flour and all-natural clover honey for Craig to have a healthy, but travel-ready breakfast to bring on his trips.
SuperMan Breakfast Bars
These are SUPER simple, and according to my husband, extra yummy – not to mention healthy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- parchment paper
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup flax seed (milled)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
- 1 1/4 cup mixed nuts
- 2 TBS chia seeds
- 2 TBS dried blueberries
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup clover honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350*, and line a smaller baking dish with parchment paper. (Hint: You can make it a lot easier on yourself by spraying the dish with non-stick spray for to make the parchment stick.) In one bowl, combine coconut flour, salt, baking soda soda, coconut flakes, nuts, flax and blueberries. In another bowl, combine butter, honey and vanilla. Once well combined, pour dry ingredients into wet and mix well. Press into baking dish on parchment, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cool, place into refrigerator to chill (at least 2 hours), and then cut into squares to serve. These can be kept fresh for about a week in a zip-lock bag, refrigerated.
If you try them, let us know what you think! I have found ‘sugar-free honey’ at Aldi, and can’t wait to try this recipe for myself – Insulin Resistant Style! 🙂
Y’all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
