Happy 3 year Anniversary Fast "Food" ??!!

Snapped this picture tonight of our fast "food" project from October 2010.  For more on that story, click here.

Or for the 2012 picture, click here.

Yes, I still have this "food."  My kids have begged me to keep it as long as possible so its tucked high away in one of our cupboards for the annual anniversary photo.  OMWord.

No Bake Chocolate Granola Chia Cookies

I'm always looking for a gluten-free, sugar-free way to curb my sweet tooth.  This one is amazing and super easy to make!  I meshed several recipes together and here's what I came up with:

1 c. organic nut butter (we usually use almond but I splurged on pb -- highly recommend!)
2/3 c. raw honey (thank you to my bees! :))
1/4 c. chia seeds
1/4 c. raw cacao powder
1/3 c. coconut oil
1 T. vanilla
1/4 t. real salt
3 c. organic granola (you could use oatmeal but I used our granola and it was superb)

Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl.  Add the chia seeds, cacao and salt mix well.  Stir the granola in and mix evenly.  Chill in fridge for an hour or so and then roll into balls.  Chill until serving. Bwhahahahahaha.  They won't last long enough to chill....
