Almond Butter Maple Granola Bars + Faith and Miracles

Hi Friends! Today, I have a miraculous story to share with you! It might just be my most powerful post yet, because the story is also accompanied with these Almond Butter Maple Granola Bars! Yay! If you follow me on the Wellness to Go Facebook page, you may have noticed on Saturday night that I posted about having clumsily spilled water onto my mac laptop and how it immediately shut down. My laptop, that had all of my work, and files, and photos, on it had died. After recovering from the shock and tears and the panic of wiping my laptop as dry as I could, I tried reviving it but it wouldn’t turn on. Little did I know that this event held a spiritual lesson for me to learn within the next few days. So the next day, I took my laptop to the technician, and he opened the cover of the bottom of my laptop and told me to leave it open and standing to dry near a heater over the weekend. He …

Popcorn Almond Butter Chocolate Granola Bars + Perfectionism

So… today I want to talk about something that I have been struggling with for the past 10 years or so.

I have come to learn that it doesn’t exist. and that’s really comforting. There was this one time in high school, when I was making this colored pencil art work. I spent maybe around 3 hours coloring, and fixing this …

Sweet Potato Lovin’ Bars

This is a very special post. Included at the end of this post is not only a very delicious recipe, but at the end of the post I reveal something perfect that you can give to your friends and family for Valentine’s Day!   I was dreaming…. for something sweet and savoury and crunchy and satisfyingly – moreish… But I didn’t know what to make that could tick all of those boxes. So I went to my kitchen and saw my sweet po-ta-to. And a light bulb moment happened. Yes, sweet potatoes are as versatile as they come!   You can mash them, bake them, boil them, make oatmeal or even make sweet potato pancakes out of them.   So, I went to my pantry and decided to mix all of my favorite things together. Nuts… for crunch. Oatmeal… for that fudgy chewy texture. Sweet potato and honey…. for sweetnes. Almond butter (of course!) for that oh so delicious satisfyingly – moreish taste in every bite… And… Chocolate… of course!   Now, before you stare at …
