DIY: Homemade LARABars

DIY: Homemade LARABars

Recently I posted about all of the changes our family has made in the direction of sustainability, specifically when it comes to making our own food.  We’ve been able to eliminate almost all of the processed food that was in our diet on a regular basis, and meanwhile have been saving money – win, win!  And one of the biggest money savers has come with our ability to make Larabars at home with nothing but a food processor. For those of you not familiar with Larabars, they are delectable RAW energy/protein bars made with often as little as 3 ingredients.  There…Read the rest of this entry →

“Good Marriage” Bars

Cragmama

I went to a wedding shower for Lisette, my friend and co-worker, on on Thursday night.  For the past few weeks, she and I have had this endless conversation about these granola bars that I make.  When we first started talking about it, I gave her the recipe, but she misplaced it.  I wrote it out a second time, but she had not had a chance to make them yet.  But we’ve been talking about them forever.  Well, I decided that even though it had nothing to do with a wedding, I would make some for her and throw them in…Read the rest of this entry →
