Lucy….I’m Home!

Posted on

First thing’s first….

For breakfast I had “the usual”.  The smoothie was as refreshing and delicious as always!

Cold and Creamy!

Last night, I was in the mood to bake (honestly, I don’t know when I’m not in the mood to bake…).  So I tried a recipe I found a while ago that I had tucked away in my recipe box.  But first, it is time that you all meet Lucy.

Lucy....I'm Hooooome!

Lucy is my Kitchenaid stand mixer and my pride and joy 🙂  Brian got her for me for my birthday last year! I have to say it is probably one of the best birthday presents ever!  I lover her because I love to bake, Brian loves her because he loves to eat what I bake.  Last night, I made Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars.  They are yummy and simple and I feel would make a good after school snack!

 

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars

  • 1/2 Cup Margarine or Butter

    Yummy little treat

  • 3/4 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Cup Chopped Nuts
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Fruit
  • 1/2 Cup M&Ms (whatever kind you want!)
Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 or 9″ square pan.  In a medium mixing bowl (or Lucy) cream butter and peabut butter until smooth.  Add sugars, eggs, and vanilla.  Beat until combined. In a separate bowl combine baking powder, salt, and flour.  Slowly add flour mixture into PB mixtures, mixing on medium until combined.  Add nuts, fruits, and M&Ms.  Spread into greased pan.  BAke 30-35 min. Allow to cool before cutting.
The whole wheat flour makes them a little crunchy and chewy all at the same time.  Yummy!!
