Santa’s Savory Snack Mix

Hey Everyone!  I made a couple batches of this crunchy snack mix for a Christmas Gift Exchange with the girls and it got rave reviews.   Of course you don’t have to save this recipe for a Christmas treat (nor does it have to be gluten free).    I’m sure it would be welcome anytime of the year.  This recipe is based on the Chex Mix recipe.  I wanted to make this version gluten free and believe me…no one would ever know.   You can easily switch up the cereals to similar ones if you can’t find the same ones that I have here. Just make sure they are plain, unflavoured and unsweetened. Continue reading

Carob Energy Nuggets


Every once in a while I buy a healthy (and pricy) treat for my husband at our local health food store. They are called Energy Nuggets.  In no time the bag is ripped open and they are gobbled up (of course I help a little).  I wondered if there was a recipe out there for them and lo and behold there was!  I bought the ingredients and whipped them up last night.  I made a few minor adjustments to suit my taste.  I didn’t take step-by-step photos as I wasn’t sure if the recipe was going to turn out.  Was I shocked when they came out exactly the same as the store bought version.  So the next time I make them I will take the step-by-step pics.   I did take a few pics of the end result so you don’t have to go completely without.  This no-bake recipe comes together very fast so you don’t have to wait too long before you can pop one or two in your mouth.  By the way, for anyone interested, this recipe is Vegan and Gluten free. Only 63 calories per nugget to conquer your sweet tooth! Continue reading
