S'mores Granola

It's been a while since I've shared a granola recipe with you. But this one's a doozy--S'mores Granola!


The past week it's been fairly cool in Carolina country for July, but most of the time in summer the thought of sitting around a campfire in the summer is just. too. hot. But I love the flavors of chocolate and marshmallows, so S'mores Granola is a perfect melding of those flavors into a yummy breakfast treat.

Here's what you need:
4 cups of old fashioned or rolled oats
1/2 cup dry milk
1/2 ground flax
3 tbsp cocoa
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup corn syrup
1 cup mini marshmallows





Preheat your oven to 325. Mix oats, milk, flax, cocoa, and flour together in a large bowl. Use the microwave to melt the coconut oil and mix with the corn syrup. Add the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Spread into a 9x13 non-stick baking pan and back for 40-45 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes.

Allow to cool and add marshmallows. Enjoy with milk or yogurt.


Enjoy!

Double Cherry Tea Popsicles - 2 Ingredients

I think we've established that I love simple ice pop recipes. I love how you can get a whole serving of fruit into "dessert" without anyone being the wiser. And I love how many options you have in the summer time with all the fruit that is season! And what says summer more than cherries? I love these double cherry popsicles!


This recipe is super easy. The hardest part is pitting the cherries! You will love how the cherry herbal tea compliments the fresh sweet cherries!

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh brewed cherry flavored herbal tea (brew 1 bag according to directions)
1 pound sweet fresh cherries



Brew your tea and allow to cool while pitting cherries. While the tea steeps, pit your cherries. Puree cherries and tea together in a blender or food processor.

Pour puree into a popsicle mold. This recipe makes 10 popsicles. Freeze overnight. And...that's it!


Enjoy a sweet, healthy dessert!

Matching Girl & American Girl Tie Dye Dresses #tiedyeyoursummer #tdys #ad

Disclosure - I wrote this post as part of a sponsored campaign for Tulip and Blueprint Social. 

Want to know a secret? Until recently, I had never tie dyed anything before in my life. I was intimidated by the whole idea. But this summer, I was invited by Tulip to " Tie Dye Your Summer " and I just knew that this was the summer to conquer my fears!



And I had the perfect project to do it with. My biggest girl is all about the American Girl doll that she got this past winter, and she loves the idea of dressing the same as her doll. We decided to use tie dye to create outfits for her and her doll. The sewing was simple--we just used a single large adult t-shirt and the only sewing was 2 straight seams! And I think you're going be amazed at how simple tie-dying is with Tulip's One-Step Tie Dying so that you can make your own doll & me matching outfits!
