Holiday Chocolate Bark Madness!

Okay so I may have gotten a little carried away with the Chocolate Bark this year… and by “a little” I mean a lot. It started off with just one batch of delicious bark, and then I just couldn’t stop thinking of all the different flavour combinations and all the different possibilities of deliciousness. Before I knew it, my kitchen counters were literally covered in different flavours of chocolate bark; each amazingly delicious in their own unique ways.

Banoffee Pie Granola Bars

IMG_7247

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I am so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to share this super simple recipe for my Banoffee Pie Granola Bars with you today!

Not only do these granola bars make for an amazingly delicious breakfast or snack, but they also double as a super yummy dessert. Basically it’s like getting three meal options for the price of one – and what could be better than that ?!

This is a nice big recipe so you can easily serve up a couple slices for breakfast, pack a few leftovers along with you for an afternoon snack, and still have some leftover to reheat and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. Mhmmmmm

But how do they taste you ask? Well to put it simply, they taste just how they sound… like a banoffee pie; Honestly, need I say more? The flavor of the caramelized banana combined with the toasty oats and the nutty pecans… It’s simply irresistible. If you are a banoffee pie fan, you are going to absolutely love these granola bars. So head on over to Best Friends for Frosting to get the recipe for these via this link here !

Happy Baking lovelies <3 <3

Who else else here grew up eating cream cheese and jam sandwiches on a regular basis?

If you answered a big fat YES! to the above question, please accept this virtual high five… {hi-ya!} I feel like this relationship is off to an amazing start, don’t you? 😀

Alright so some of you are probably thinking that a cream cheese and jam sandwich sounds more than a little strange, am I right?

But when you really think about it… this whole cream cheese and jam sandwich flavour combo is really quite similar to that of these White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Bars. You got your cream cheese, you got your jam and you got your crust… Yeah I think we might be onto something here… :p

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Confession: Yesterday I had a super, duper, giddy girly moment. Ladies you know the kind of moment I’m talking about right?

One of those moments where you literally just can’t possibly contain all your happiness, and your excitement escapes you body in high pitched squeals and very awkward, frantic, body flailing movements. We’ve all been there –  no need to be embarrassed. We’re all friends here.

So what was is exactly that possessed me to turn into a squealing, arm flailing spazoid yesterday? Well it may have had something to do with when Food52 featured the picture of my Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies their instagram feed –  well actually it had everything to do with that…

Dark Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

Happy Friday peeps! So glad you popped by  <3

I am of the opinion that it is about a hundred and ten percent necessary for me to do a recipe post on Fridays, because I feel like we all deserve a little bit of a reward for being super awesome, and making it through the work week… agreed? Awesome – I’m glad we are on the same page about this.

And really what would any celebration be without a little bit {or a lot} of chocolate? Let’s just be real here, it simply wouldn’t be a celebration at all… {or not a very good one anyway} – hence these Dark Chocolate Mocha Date Bars to aid in your Friday celebration vibes!  Mhmmm…

Whole Wheat Apricot Jam Granola Bars

IMG_2312
Confession … I am a fool for everything and anything that contains oats. Whether it be a breakfast, lunch or dinner dish, I could literally eat oat themed meals all day, everyday, and have zero problems with it. Long story short, I am an oatmeal addict. There I said it…

We have had this conversation to some extent before, but I feel like I have never really confessed just how deeply my love for all things oat related in quite so much detail. So hey – I mean as long as we’re being really honest here – I guess I should tell you that I actually have no problem eating raw oats on their own. Yup, that’s right – believe it or not, I actually find raw oats to be incredibly delicious and sometimes I eat them with a spoon straight from my oatmeal jar . Ahh… that felt so good to get that off my chest 😀

Are you thinking to yourself … “this girl has gone bananas” yet? Well, then I guess this will make you think that I am double crazy time, but I gladly sit down to an extra large bowl of warm oatmeal Every. Single. Morning. Mhmmm , I never miss an oat-meal…. {bad pun definitely intended} 😀

Cole on the other hand is a little less than enthused to sit down to a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. In fact that is probably the last thing that he wants to see on the breakfast table when he is in a hungry-bear man mood in the morning. It’s not that he wouldn’t eat the whole bowl if it was his only option for food… but, let’s just say it takes a little more pizzazz when it comes to getting him excited about consuming his required daily amounts of whole grain, oaty goodness. But it’s okay because I’m always up for the challenge…
