I just had to share this one of Sam. He was drinking a smoothie and got the biggest moustache from it. So funny and a good sport to let me take the picture.
I also have been trying to do more baking or some sort of cooking with them each week. This week we made NO BAKE ENERGY BARS! They were so yummy. When ever I opened the fridge it smelt like the No-Bake Chocolate cookies. I included the recipe below the picture of them if you want to try and make them to. Enjoy!
NO-BAKE ENERGY BARS
butter or oil for greasing the pan, 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 2 cups crisp rice cereal, 1/2 cup flaked coconut, 1/2 cup sesame seeds, 1 cup sunflower seeds, 3/4 cup peanut butter, 3/4 brown sugar, 3/4 cup maple syrup.
Some variations offered:
Add in a 1/2 cup of wheat germ for extra nutrition. Substitute chopped peanuts or almonds for the sunflower seeds. Use raisins instead of the coconut. Try butterscotch chips instead of the chocolate chips.
1.) Grease bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 pan.
2.) Mix together Chocolate chips, rolled oats, crisp rice cereal, coconut, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds.
3.) Over medium heat combine the brown sugar, peanut butter, and syrup until the brown sugar has dissolved.
4.) Combine in the bowl with the other ingredients. Mix well.
5.) Pour it all into the pan and pat it out flat. Then chill for 3 hours.
I found the recipe in the Cook Book called Cool Sweets.
Well I hope to be back in the next few days to share some other pictures that I have and some of the wonderful books that we have been reading, both of which I am behind on. Shocking that I am behind. LOL. Well have a good evening I am off to do the dishes.
