Nut-Free Trail Bars

These trail bars are delicious and one my favorite snacks to both eat and make! Awhile back I was flipping through my mom’s cookbook and came across a recipe for Alexa’s trail bars (I didn’t know I had trail bars named after me!). I scanned through the ingredients and found out that I could easily make them! After I ate the first bar, I was hooked! These nut-free trail bars have quickly risen to one of my must-make snacks!

Nut-free Trail Bars- These bars are the perfect high energy bar for any occassion! They are nut-free, peanut free, and gluten free!

‘Chic’ Deviled Eggs

With last week being Easter, I figured I would break up the series “Incubating” and include a cute, ‘chic’ recipe! Every Easter, I like to make deviled eggs to go with the Easter meal. These deviled eggs are not your typical deviled eggs though! I like to throw a little spice into them and make them into cute animals, my favorite being chicks! I have also made mice, snowman, owls, and pumpkins! So get creative!

"Chic" Deviled Eggs- make the cutest display of deviled eggs for your Easter meal!

Alexa’s Trail Bars

This week I resurrected and old (but really delicious) recipe: Alexa’s Trail Bars. It has been such a long time since these were last made that I can’t even remember why they were named that! The only thing I know though, is that I’d say they are worthy of having my name on them!





3 1/2 c. organic rolled oats

1/2 c. organic sunflower seeds

1/2-1 c. organic chocolate chips

2/3 c. organic butter, melted

1/4 c. xyla

1/4 c. maple syrup

1 ripe banana, mashed

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 c. organic shredded coconut

1/4 c. organic ground flax seeds

1 large organic egg

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a pot over stovetop. Mix all the dry ingredients together then add the butter and the rest of the wet ingredients. Combine thoroughly. The mixture will seem dry. Mine bars came out a little crumbly so if you wanted you probably could add another egg for less crumbly bars. Pat mixture into a buttered 9×13 glass dish. Bake for 15 minutes. These bars freeze great!



Another recipe I tried this week was bison sweet potatoe chili! It was fantastic! Look for the recipe in future posts!




Have a great week!
