Homemade Energy Bars Great for Hikers


It’s getting to be that time of year when hiking can be much more enjoyable with cooler weather. Fall is just around the corner and soon we will be experiencing the fabulous color changes of the trees leaves to pretty oranges and reds. I love to hike this time of year and to keep it more enjoyable what better way than to bring along some fabulous treats especially those that can provide you with more energy to keep you going.

These homemade energy bars are a favorite of mine because you can make them yourself and they keep fresh in zip lock bags. The key ingredients are peanut butter, rice crispies, oats, coconut, peanuts, marshmallows, and raisins. How could you possibly go wrong with all that?

I have included a link to my Etsy shop for the recipe. It is a digital download. The price for it is low, and well worth it.

Thanks for stopping by,

The Best Ever Keto Lemon Pie


Keto Lemon Pie with Pecan Crust

Today, I thought I would leave you all with a little treat to fix over the weekend. As for me, I am fixing to head out for the weekend to a rodeo. I can’t tell you how excited I am, if I am even at all, but sometimes just to get away from the day after day routines, is healthy for your soul.

I made this recipe, and honestly, I have only the best reviews! The easy to make pecan crust is the best I have ever tasted as far as crust goes, and now I think every pie should have a simple easy tasty crust like this.

Here is the recipe:

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time 10 minutes

Freeze time 1 hour

Total time 25 minutes

Servings 8

Calories 377 kcal

Ingredients

Crust:

1 cup chopped pecans

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 tsp Swerv granulated (sugar)

For the Lemon Pie Filling:

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2/3 cup Swerve confections (powdered sugar)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions:

For the crust:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crush pecans finely. I use a mini chopper

Add butter and Swerve granular (sugar) to crushed pecans and mix thoroughly.

Grease a pie pan then add crust mixture.

Grease the back of a spoon and use it to carefully smooth the pecan mixture in the bottom of the pie pan and up the sides.

Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.

For the pie filling:

In a large bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.

Add the softened cream cheese, Swerve Confectioners (powdered sugar), and vanilla to the heavy whipping cream and beat on a medium speed until the mixture is smooth.

Add lemon juice and lemon zest then beat again. You can use more or less, depending on how strong you want the lemon to taste.

Pour filling mixture into pecan crust and freeze for 1-2 hours before serving.

You may store pie in fridge and pop in the freezer for about an hour or two prior to serving.

Enjoy!

Grandma’s Banana Bread


Going to Grandma’s house, was always such a treat, I mean really, who doesn’t love the fresh smell of warm banana bread. My grandmother, was born and raised in southern Oklahoma, Hugo, matter of fact. I do not know where she learned to cook, but believe me, her cooking was the best. She was the type of grandma that when I asked her, how she made this or that, she would simply smile and say, “just add a little of this, and a pinch of that!”

My grandmother was a cook most of her life while raising 6 children mostly on her own. She worked for the state school, and I could just imagine all the smiles she brought to those children’s faces. I was fortunate one day, for my grandmother to share her recipe of her banana bread with me. Her recipe is so unique in fact, that you can add some bananas to it, or a can of pumpkin, or applesauce, with just a few minor seasoning adjustments. On top of all this, you don’t need separate bowls to mix the dry, and wet, ingredients. Just one bowl is all you need. If you like soft moist banana bread with a lightly crunchy outer crust, then you’ve come to the right place.

Below is a link to my Etsy Shop where you will find this digital download. Its not that expensive and well worth it especially when you can bake different types of breads with this one single recipe.

I hope you enjoy~
