If you have been following along for awhile, you probably have caught some of my other granola recipes. I love adding granola to my vanilla yogurt so I am always thinking of new ingredients. I started with the original recipe (here) and have made seasonal changes like peanut butter granola and most recently, carrot cake granola. For fall, I wanted something that really represented the flavors of the season. Caramel Apple Granola sounded fitting.
Now that it is October and pumpkin season is in full swing, I thought it was a great opportunity to incorporate another pumpkin recipe into the mix. After making these pumpkin waffles a few weeks ago, I’ve been on a real pumpkin kick. I don’t want to say pumpkin overload, but I feel like I’ve been consuming a lot of pumpkin lately. But what better time of the year for it! I’m also excited to share this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie in picture and video form!
It’s no secret that my love for peanut butter runs pretty deep. I eat it at least once a day and I am always look for excuses to eat more. Peanut butter power bars were always my go-to snack while playing college tennis. Now, they are my favorite pre- and post-workout snack. Last weekend, my mom and I decided to remake the power bar recipe from college and switch up the ingredients. Since we lost the original recipe, it was a good excuse to create our own. As much as I loved the power bars in college, I am completely addicted to this new peanut butter power bar version.
