So Hubs’ birthday is coming up in a few days. I’m pretty sure that now his birthday will always be a little overshadowed by Little Man’s since they’re only just over a week apart. Luckily Hubs isn’t fussy about his birthday and is happy to have a simple night on the town with me. Yay. But I thought that before I got myself all dolled up, I should give you all an easy recipe that can carry you through the weekend.
For Little Man’s birthday, one of the things I made was birdseed bars. Besides being delicious and healthy, these bars are also gluten-free and dairy-free! And they’re sweetened only with honey. They are really easy and very versatile.
I got the idea from a birdseed bar I’d had from our local health food store. I looked at the ingredient list to have an idea what to put in it, and just made it up from there.
Ok, friends. This is not a new recipe. In fact, this is the first recipe I ever posted on this blog. And it’s a goodie.
But here’s the thing. The first time I made it for you, Little Man was less than 2 months old. Which meant that I didn’t have a ton of time for these things, and that most of my cooking happened after he went to bed (i.e. after it was dark.) So the pictures I posted were terrible. That didn’t stop many of you from leaving lovely comments on how delicious it sounded. But it’s bugged me for a long time.
So, recently I made this again and decided to take pictures of the process. This time I made it for breakfast, so natural light was plentiful. I left the directions mostly the same, but this time we made 4 sandwiches instead of 3, since Little Man loves himself some french toast.
To review, the PB N B in the title stands for Peanut Butter, Nutella & Banana. In french toast. It’s pretty much all kinds of awesome. I mean, seriously. How can you go wrong with that combo? This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea. I don’t follow a recipe when I make french toast, so if you have a favorite recipe, you can easily use it when making this. (more…)
