Cooking From My Pantry: Breakfast Cookies

Let me say up front that I do not know where I got this recipe!  (I've had it a long time.) I know that it came from somewhere online and that I have tweaked it a bit!

I also know that it's a delicious and healthy 'grab and go' breakfast food/cookie!

Breakfast Cookies
1 and 1/2 cups oats  (I ran the oats through my food processer) 
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1 egg
1/3 cup maple syrup  (could also use honey)
1 tsp vanilla  (I used my home-made vanilla)
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Mix all this up really well (I ended up using my hands towards the end as the mixture was getting hard to mix.)
Add in  1/4 - 1/2 cup nuts (I used black walnuts because that's what I had, but any nut would do)
Add in 1/4 - 1/2 cup dried fruit (I used cranberries, because, again, that's what I had) 
Mix really well (I used my hands)
Form into balls, place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and flatten.  These cookies will not rise much at all so keep that in mind when you're flattening them.
Bake at 350 for 12 – 14 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack until cool.  (These were even better the next morning for breakfast after they had set in the refrigerator overnight!)
Enjoy!

$5 or Less Pantry Challenge: 7/20/2019

It's time to share how we're building our pantries with $5 or less.

Remember, this $5 is not part of the weekly groceries budget. It is set aside to be used just for stocking up in any area of our pantries.   

Here's what I added to my pantry this week …

Summer Series 2019: Week 5


I hope you're enjoying this summer series, here we are at week 5!
Here’s the question/comment we’re addressing this week …
It would be great if you could cover the differences of building a pantry for a single or couple, versus one for a family. Also, how to have a smaller pantry without the items going bad or out living their shelf life (effective storage ideas?). Thanks.

30 Day Preserving Challenge: Day 20, Zucchini

In this post, I told you that in addition to my little student having her sewing lesson this week, that we were also going to do some preserving.  Here's what we did before her sewing lesson began!

We washed, cut in chunks and ran the zucchini I had harvested before she got to my house, through the food processor.  I let her feed the food processor and she thought it was the 'greatest' thing!  After the zucchini was chopped, we put it in a colander/strainer to drain off as much of the liquid as we could. 

We got out the hand mixer and I set her up with a big mixing bowl along with the mixer.  She wanted to hold the mixer and do the mixing for the zucchini bread we were going to make.  She ran the mixer while I added the ingredients one at a time.

When it was all mixed up I set her to greasing the loaf pans with shortening and then we poured in the batter.

30 Day Preserving Challenge: Day 19 ... Pepper Relish

Our peppers are doing really well this year, we planted almost all of them in our container garden or in raised beds and they have exceeded our expectations.

I've been harvesting the cayenne and putting them in the greenhouse to dry.  I've purposefully left the most of the bell, jalapeno, hot banana and sweet banana on the plants until there were several of each.  This week we harvested them and I made pepper relish.

This pepper relish has been in our family for a very long time and it was in my husband's family before that.
