Easy treats!

Easy treats!

I have been busy gardening this week, and wouldn’t have dared to put my hands in any food because I have had the hands of a mechanic… Yup, that bad! But after soaking in the pool for a good hour, and a manicure, I can now do some baking! Btw, can’t wait to show off some garden pics! I’ll posted later this week, still have a couple beds to finish. 

So onto the good stuff…food! I have really been trying to reduce the amount of sugar I have been eating. But, I have to say that I have the willpower of a jellyfish (I don’t actually know if a jellyfish possesses enough brainpower to comprehend willpower….which is part of why I though it made a good comparison) Anyways, part of my twisted logic when it comes to eating sugar is that if you bake smaller cookies, you can eat more of them, and if you add good things like hemp hearts or wheat bran, the good balances out the bad… Right? Well, a good justification for being able to eat chocolate is to mix it with something not so bad, like rice crispies, so you can eat more. Makes total sense to me. 

I started by melting some chocolate….

  
   Then added a few handfuls of rice crispies, and some hemp hearts (you know, to make it healthy).

  

Gave it a good mix.

  
  

Spread it out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and put it in the fridge for an hour or so.
Then, broke it into pieces! Voila. No measuring needed, just a handful of this and that… I thought of this afterwords, but next time I am going to add some cranberries! Mm mm
 

I’ll share some garden pics soon! Enjoy the hot weather!
