Hey y’all! Hope you are having an awesome summer. We sure are. I always think summer will be time for us to sit back and relax, but I swear we are busier than ever with activities. Today the fam and I went paddle boarding at the lake. So much fun!
Oh my gosh these Chocolate and Coconut Granola Bites are absolutely delish!!! They are super easy to make and you can easily switch the ingredients to fit your dietary needs. Why on earth haven’t I made these before?
A few months ago I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of The Paleo Kitchen written by George Bryant and Juli Bauer. I was so excited to get in my tiny apartment kitchen and try out these amazing recipes! I have made many of their recipes in the past so I new it was going to be an awesome cookbook. Well then life got in the way, we bought a house and needed to move quickly. So this gorgeous cookbook was packed away. I finally got the house unpacked and was so excited when I finally found this treasure packed away in a box.
The Paleo Kitchen starts with tips on getting started on the paleo diet, then transitions into a list of seasonal list of fruits and veggies which certainly helps keeping the grocery budget in check. Then they move onto panty essentials and kitchen tools to make your life easier in the kitchen. They also discuss how to cook smarter and proper food storage. I think this is great resource for the beginner cook who may be completely overwhelmed and not sure where to start.
Now onto the recipes! I’m not sure where to start! Everything looks and sounds amaaaazing. My first recipe was the Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread.
Sometimes you just need something sweet! Strawberry Chocolate Chips Muffins will definitely do the trick and not make you feel guilty. These muffins are super moist and oh so yummy.
I used some of those delicious strawberries I picked the other day. I picked so many strawberries I didn’t even make a dent in huge basket I got at a local farm. So it looks like we will be eating a lot of strawberries this week!
