the BEST (and easiest) homemade Mac & Cheese (with Bacon!)

I have tried all sorts of homemade macaroni and cheese, the kind where you make a white sauce gravy then add cheese, the kind you bake, with crackers breadcrumbs, etc...

I FINALLY found the BEST tasting and easiest to make Mac & Cheese recipe. It is SO yummy you'll never go back to the boxed kind (well you might in an emergency, but you won't enjoy it)! I made mine with bacon and asparagus, but you can make it plain or add your favorite meat & veggie combo.

Loaded Granola

I think this is the best granola I've tried. It's really simple to make, healthy for you and tastes great!

1/2 cup coconut oil or butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 cups of oats
1/2 cup flax seed
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups raisins

Preheat oven to 325. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Heat the coconut oil, honey, maple syrup and salt in a microwave bowl or over the stove just until coconut oil is melted and mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon, vanilla, oats, healthy additives (wheat germ, flax seed, chia seeds, whatever you like), coconut and your choice of nuts, until well mixed.

Don't add your dried fruit until after baking.

Divide the granola between two cookie sheets and bake for about 15 minutes or just until granola starts to brown. Remove from oven and stir. Let cool until crunchy. Store in airtight container and enjoy! Print Friendly and PDF

Guilt-free Honey Wheat Oatmeal Cookies (no sugar!)

These little cookies are not only made from wholesome natural ingredients but are pretty darn tasty and with only 1/2 cup of honey to sweeten the whole batch, you don't have to feel guilty about serving them up to your kiddos or eating one (or three) yourself!
