Snacks are such an important way to get additional nutrition in between meals and satisfy your hunger. They’re especially important for people who need to eat small, frequent meals (which is pretty much anyone with any GI issues). As of late, these peanut butter banana bread energy bars are my favorite snacks to bring to work. I’ve even brought them hiking on my trip to Maine and they held up well.
I began by making my own granola bars because granola bars (or otherwise termed protein or energy bars) are expensive and often times like eating a candy bar. I enjoy being able to add whatever combination of ingredients together and shaping them into little bites. I generally have my go-to combinations, but the other day I was looking for something a little different and stumbled upon this recipe for a carrot energy bite.
I asked for a crockpot for Christmas one year so I could make yogurt. Note, I didn’t ask for a yogurt maker. I opted instead for a giant clunky device that is not ideal for making yogurt. So I have a crockpot and I mostly forget it’s in my kitchen and it doesn’t get used too often. Every so often, as in the other day, I decide to use it. I found this recipe for a slow cooker pumpkin chickpea and lentil curry.
