Sweet Berry Homemade Granola

Freshly baked granola is one of my most loved snack foods. I’m obsessed!

I like this particular recipe so much that I made a huge batch of it last year, stuffed it into pretty jars, and gave it to my friends for Christmas! It was one of the best gifts I’ve given, because it is delicious, made with pure, natural ingredients and lots of love, of course :-)

With the weather being so frigid lately, I’ve been spending much time indoors. I don’t know about you, but winter makes me feel lethargic; all I want to do is sleep, veg on my couch with a cup of tea, and munch on things. Lot’s of things. 

I have probably gained  5 lbs since Thanksgiving… So, I’ve been on a mission to fill my pantry with healthy snacks to nibble on while trying to survive the rest of the brutal New England winter.

I must admit, I am not the best of cooks, but I love to bake and I absolutely enjoy trying  out healthy dessert recipes. Plus, you know I have a sweet tooth!

As I thought about a healthy snack I can enjoy this time of year, granola came to mind. It’s super quick to make, it’s healthy and most importantly, it is super yummy!

Raw Chocolate Almond Chunks

March 13, 2014

Chocolate is one of those foods I cannot live without. I have to have it. Period. 

I was feeling a bit down this weekend and wanted a little something to pick me up. Chocolate it is. It always does the trick!

The Raw Chocolate Almond Chunks is one of my all-time favorite recipes 1) it’s absolutely heavenly and 2) it requires very minimal time and effort.  Not to mention, this is one of the healthiest and most decadent chocolate creations ever. You know I would’t give you anything less than amazing :-)

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you can totally make it your own if you feel inspired to do so. There is a lot of room for experimentation. You can use different kinds of nuts, add in dried fruits, seeds or berries, anything your heart desires!
