I’m finally posting the homemade, no bake peanut butter granola bar recipe I’ve been talking about for weeks!
I planned to post it last week but, unfortunately, I had a bit of a baby scare and had to rush to the Dr on the day I planned to post 🙁
Last Wednesday I woke up with some super serious and constant abdominal pain. I knew it wasn’t contractions or preterm labor because the pain wasn’t coming and going, but it was severe enough that it definitely warranted a call to my Dr.
They immediately told me I had to come in for an emergency ultrasound, which is terrifying in and of itself, but I was also worried because I was supposed to be leaving to head home to Charleston for 10 days that afternoon.
Long story short, Owen is absolutely fine and healthy. He’s just a miracle, and I feel so blessed to have this little man with me at every waking moment of the day. After my Dr. checked out everything he needed to via ultrasound, he zoomed in on my sweet angel’s little face and he was opening and closing his mouth as if he was telling us how happy he was inside his little cocoon.
The pain turned out to be a super severe case of round ligament pain, and it *FINALLY* went away after 4 days. Yahoo!
Now onto these absolutely amazing granola bars that my family just can’t get enough of. I have made these twice now, and they are absolutely fantabulous! I really can’t take credit for the recipe though. I found it here, and I only made a few slight changes because they were practically perfect in every way.
These chewy granola bars are an absolute must for anyone looking for a nutritional snack or sweet treat on the go. They are full of healthy whole grain oats, protein packed peanut butter, and organic coconut oil that’s nothing but pure health in a jar.
Just make a big batch of them, wrap them up in some parchment, and grab them out of the fridge anytime you need a quick breakfast or an easy snack!
