I finally caught up with Amanda and read the Mrs. Rosey Posey books – and I’m so glad I got the chance to read them! The books are full of wonderful Biblical truths – all simply explained – and lovely to read. I’m a Robin Jones Gunn groupie now, too! If you didn’t win copies of the books in our giveaway, please go and find copies someplace. Fabulous!
I love making food from scratch for my family – and I love it even more when it turns out to be delicious and easy! A friend shared this recipe with me for granola bars… super easy and absolutely fabulous! Great for substitutions – just be sure the volume of dry ingredients remains the same with anything that is subbed in. Also a great recipe to let the kids help with!
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 1/2 cups oats
- 1 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup dried apricots
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup milled flax seeds
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Warm condensed milk in microwave (optional – I never do this). Mix all dry ingredients together; add condensed milk and fold together with spatula. Spread mixture into a greased 13?x9? pan. Press lightly with hand or spatula. Bake 1 hour – remove and let cool 3 minutes. Cut into bars. When completely cooled, wrap bars for goodness on the go!
Other awesome combos = chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and cashews; butterscotch chips and sunflower seeds.
