  • 2/3 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1.5 Cups Oatmeal
  • 1 Cup Nuts
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips


  • Pulse 1 cup of the oatmeal in your food processor
  • Mix the peanut butter, honey, and the coconut oil
  • Using the sauce pan method; heat the mixture on med low until it is melted. If you are using the microwave, be sure to use a microwave safe bowl and heat 30 seconds at a time, until it is all melted together.
  • Set aside to cool slightly
  • Pulse the cup of nuts in your food processor. You can also use left over trail mix. If your trail mix has chunks of dried fruit it may not break down easily, don't worry it is still delicious this way. Pulse it a few times and leave any big chunks.
  • Add 1 cup of the oats in the food processor pulse it a few times. Set the other half cup of oats aside (leave the 1/2 cup of oats un-pulsed)
  • Add the pulsed mixture into a bowl, and set aside
  • Add 1/2 melted peanut mixture a little at a time, slowly folding it in If you add it too fast or its too hot it will melt the chips
  • Add the chocolate chips and the 1/2 cup of oatmeal
  • Fold in the rest of the melted peanut butter mixture until it is well incorporated, sticky and forming clumps
  • Press them into your lined baking pan to form an even layer
  • Once they are formed they will need to set up in the refrigerator for at least one hour
  • Once they have set up you can remove them from the pan by holding on to the parchment paper and slice them with a pizza cutter or large knife
  • We wrap them in wax paper for individual snacks or you could have them as a grab and go breakfast too.
  • These will freeze well for later, place the wrapped bars on a tray to help them keep their shape until frozen

Summer Fruit and Granola Bowl
An easy way to pull together a last minute breakfast. All you need are some pre cut canteloupe melon chunks and a handfull or your favoriite berries. We used raspberries and blueberries but strawberries or blackberries would work just as well. Actually I think the blackberry and the cantaloupe would compliment each other nicely. You can use your favorite yogurt, I used plain greek because it has no added sugar. For sweetness beyond the fruit and granola you can add a little local honey.

Raspberry Yogurt Cup
This recipe is so simple, we did not include the step by step or video instructions. We purchased 2 pints of fresh raspberries and cooked 1/2 of them down into a sauce. This allowed me to make the most of these delicious red berries. For this dish I mixed a little bit the sauce with some plain greek yogurt to add sweetness and color. Them sprinkled some homemade granola and added a a fresh berry on top.
