Almond Butter Blueberry Jam Bars

Our son devours Larabars. I love them because they have very simple ingredients (9 ingredients at most) and they are all simple, natural ingredients (nuts, dates, etc.).

Tropical Traditions Green Label Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

This is an easy breakfast for mornings on-the-go. I use All-Clad stainless steel frying pans for this recipe and they turn out beautifully. These would also be great cooked in an iron skillet, but we have a ceramic cooktop, so no more iron skillets for us. We gave up non-stick pans ages ago because of…
