It has been absolutely crazy around our house lately. We have been trying to figure out things for our move, started the process of listing our current house, and just dealing with all of the end of the school year stuff. Needless to say the days are going by way too quickly. Dinner hasn’t been at the forefront of my thoughts lately at all.
There are some baked goods that take me back to my childhood. It’s usually something that was made often and enjoyed by many. Do you have any memories like that? Zucchini bread is one of those for me. I remember my mom making zucchini bread when I was growing up. I could just eat piece after piece and never get sick of it!
I’m about to make a pretty bold statement. Are you ready for it? These are hands-down the best paleo chocolate chip cookies! I’d even say they are just as good or better than your typical chocolate chip cookie made with wheat flour. My husband isn’t usually a huge fan of paleo baked goods, but even he loves these cookies!
Let’s have a chat about tomato sauce. Did you know that many store bought brands are loaded with sugar? Just take a look at the list of ingredients and you will see for yourself. It’s really crazy to think about, and it’s really not necessary to have so much sugar in your pasta sauce! If you are interested in finding out more about how much sugar is in our food then I would suggest watching the film Fed Up. After watching the film I bet you will start looking at all of your food labels a bit more closely!
If you have been around our house then you probably know about these granola bars. They are chewy, sweet, and oh so good! Over the years, I’ve had several family members and friends ask for this recipe. I’m not always the best at remembering to share recipes, but now I won’t have to. Everyone can just find it here now! 🙂
I absolutely love granola! I have made several different kinds of granola in the past, and have tried several from grocery stores. This, however, is the granola I always come back to though. It is my absolute favorite! I mean, how could you go wrong with oats, nuts, seeds, and maple syrup?! By roughly chopping up raw almonds it gives this granola great texture and crunch. It also isn’t overly sweet which helps balance the overall flavor.
