More and more of our guests are in need of gluten-free diet. Here is a super simple way to have a sweet treat!
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
2 to 3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons milk (or almond milk for our vegan friends)
1/2 cup oats
Optional: 1 tablespoon of any dry ingredient you would like to add such as: sunflower seeds, raisins, extra chocolate chips, cocunut flakes, nuts, etc.
1) Melt the first three ingredients together in the microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring each time.
2) Add the oats and any optional ingredients. You will want this mixture to be fairly dry (I probably ended up using close to one cup of oats all together). If its not dry enough, add more oats one tablespoon at a time.
3) Press mixture into bars or balls. I lined a small Pyrex baking dish with scranwrap to make removing the bars easy. I cut mine at this point.
4) Put in the fridge for 30 minutes or until bars harden.
Here is a recipe that’s super easy to make! You won’t even need to make a midnight run to the grocery store; the recipe calls for things that you probably have in your fridge!

Growing up, my grandmother and grandfather always had a surplus of Chex Mix during the holiday season. It was one of those things that once you started eating it…you couldn’t stop! Everyone had a favorite ingredient. Mine was the Wheat Chex that had extra spices stuck to it.
Don’t even try to make Chex Mix in the microwave. It just can’t compare. Here’s the super-easy method for making Grandma’s Chex Mix. Its been kept under lock and key…until now. Make it one night while wrapping presents. Grandpa always said the key was in the stirring.
12 oz boxes of: Wheat Chex, Cheerios and Rice Chex
1.5 lb bag of pretzel rings
2 – 12 oz jars of mixed nuts
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 cups veg oil
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
Combine cereal, nuts and pretzels into a large roasting pan. Combine oil, Worcestershire, garlic salt and seasoned salt. Pour over cereal and stir well. Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours; stirring well every 15 minutes.
