Baking in the Morning

I love baking in the morning, the whole house smells great for the rest of the day! However, I should probably consider using an apron next time. Arrg!

Today I made granola bars from mothering.com. This is a tried and true recipe in our house, although I typically get a little more creative than I did today (adding tons of dried fruits, nuts, seeds, peanut butter etc.) I think the coconut oil is what really "makes" it.

I also made carrot ginger muffins from one of the What to Expect... books. They turned out awesome but HOLY GINGER! It's not for people who don't enjoy the taste of ginger.

I like the WtoE recipes because they use 100% whole grains, lots of produce, and juice instead of sugar. They make a great, mommy-guilt-free snack for the baby!

Of course, he wasn't willing to wait for it to cool off.

But that didn't seem to stop him from stuffing the whole thing in his mouth so I'm assuming these are a hit!
