Health Bites

I am always looking for some healthy snack ideas. When a friend of mine shared her recipe of health bites I thought I would try them out! 
I have seen similar recipes online but liked this one the best.

2 cups quick oats 
1 cups finely chopped nuts 
4 tbsp wheat germ 
2 tbsp ground flaxseed 
1/2 c dried fruit raisins, craisins 
(I used dried figs chopped) 
1/2 cups mini chocolate chips (optional) 
1 cups peanut butter
1/2 c honey
1 tsp vanilla extract 
Roll in chopped nuts or coconut 

 Let's get started!

Mix dry ingredients 

Add in wet ingredients  

After everything is mixed start rolling them into tablespoon sized balls. 

I rolled some bites in coconut

I always freeze a few and we have enough for about 2 weeks. If I left them all in the fridge then they wouldn't be around long... :) 

Have fun making your health bites!

Part 1: Bathroom Remodel / Sneak Peak

I have been waiting to do something with our guest bathroom
for about 3 years now.  I knew I wanted to do more than just paint the walls but I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted (sounds like a woman right?) 
The second I came across this blog Painting Stripes  via pinterest I  was sold. I enlisted the hubby's help and we set a weekend aside! 

The icky before pictures 


The Process 

Working hard making sure every stripe is level. He did such an amazing job measuring! 

Almost there!!!

Happy Wednesday
