Easy granola bars

TEB loves a good bar. While, bars aren’t my personal preference, it’s important that the bars he does consume be full of nutrients+clean ingredients+real food. These fit the bill, and no, I don’t always make homemade bars.

These are SUPER easy, and you probably already have some or all of the ingredients on the list. Plus you can switch ingredients around! If you don’t like raisins, maybe add some unsweetened cherries instead.

Collagen was perfect to add for some extra protein. OX Nutrition blends better than any collagen I have EVER used, plus they source sustainably and that is important to me. Click here to save $10 off at checkout and be sure to use code: sarah10

Some of the other ingredients like the coconut oil and flax meal were purchased at Aldi. You can see all of my Aldi Favs here. (I’m obsessed)

The one cookie recipe you want…

The moment TEB said these were the best chocolate cookies he’d ever had, I knew this recipe was a winner. After testing several times, I certainly have to agree!

They are made with simple ingredients, and fool proof. Plus, who doesn’t need another chocolate recipe on hand?! They are grain free, dairy free, basically all the things free and such a nice treat!

A pep talk: because being healthy+living your best life shouldn’t be overwhelming.

Truth be told, I am quite complicated, we all are. We all have our own issues, problems, fears, stressors, anxieties, etc. I could go on and on. But, I’m here to tell you—the simpler you can make things that you CAN control, the better off you (plus everyone around you) will be.

We put so much pressure on ourselves every single day. So, let’s pump the breaks for a sec.

There is beauty in simplicity and calm is a superpower, I promise. Give yourself some margin, but still get after it. 

You are doing just fine. If you can make one, yes, one simple change a day or even a month that will impact your health+wellbeing for the better, and that’s AWESOME. Don’t get down on yourself!
