Peanut Butter Protein Nibblies

This is one of my recipe conversions to healthify a recipe that I saw that had a good basic idea. I took it made it my own and changed the name.

Peanut Butter Protein Bars

1/2 cup  brown sugar  Coconut Sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter –> please use just peanut nut or a natural nut butter, the only ingredient should be nuts!)
1/4 cup soy or regular milk Nut milk ( I used almond)
1/4 cup honey/ molasses –>I used both 3 tbsp each
3/4  1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour Almond meal
3/4 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking soda 
2 3 tbsp canola oil Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1 tsp vanilla –> once again check your ingredient it should just be extract & maybe a bit of sugar
pinch of salt –> use real  salt ( sea salt or Himalayan salt) not table salt

Additional Add-in options
Flax, chia seed, sunflower seeds, chopped nuts, dark chocolate, coconut &/or dried fruit.

Blend all the wet ingredients together and then add the dry ingredients.

Now you have two options

  •  you can bake it in an oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. To do this lay it out on a pan lined with parchment paper, Squish flat with your hands trying to make it even. 
  • Or you can roll it into little balls and refrigerate or freeze them. leaving them raw is really good!!
Raw. Personally like this way better, more flavor and you don’t lose any thing due to cooking

Baked. Still very yummy and loved by the boys

Chocolate Caramel Crunchies

Chocolate Caramel Crunchies ( homemade Skor)
I love Skor bars. the caramel and chocolate.. so yummy. Here is a lovely homemade recipe that I love to make because it is so easy 
1 cup of real butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of chocolate chips
1 sleeve of saltines ( salted tops)
Pre heat over to 400 F. In a medium pot melt the butter, add the brown sugar to the melted butter. Bring to a low boil till it is thoroughly mixed. 
While the butter is melting lay out the saltines salted side up on a cookie sheet.
 Once the butter/ sugar mixture is well mixed and hot. pour it over the crackers. Be careful if you get it on you it hurts A LOT! Using a spatula spread it over the cracker so they are all covered. Place it in the oven for about 5-8 minutes. keep and eye on it, burnt caramel ruins it 😦 It will get all bubbly all over the pan and it need to bubble for about a minute or two depending on your oven. Then remove the tray from the oven and place the chocolate chips all over it evenly, you can always add more chocolate then 1 cup. then put it back in the oven after you have turned it off but it is still hot to melt the chips. once the chips are looking all melty remove the pan use a spatula to smooth the chocolate all around and then put it in a freezer for about 2 hours for it to cool and harden. then break it into pieces and enjoy!
