No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars Recipe

border="0" alt="chocolate oatmeal bars" hspace="5" width="200"
height="130" align="left"/>These no bake chocolate oatmeal bars are rich, chocolatey, crunchy and full of great flavors. BUT – they are also pretty healthy. Made with rolled oats, chopped almonds, coconut oil, coconut, chocolate chips, peanut butter and honey, these bars are one of my favorite after school snacks for the kids.

I use raw honey, which is rich in antioxidants, but these bars are briefly heated on the stove. So the health benefits of the honey may be muted.

Check out my oatmeal chocolate chip bars, too.

Microwave Bacon Recipe

border="0" alt="microwave bacon" hspace="5" width="160"
height="200" align="left"/>Crisp, home-cooked bacon is a cinch with this super easy microwave bacon recipe. The best part is you don’t need any special equipment, and the bacon tastes every bit as crisp as it does when it’s cooked on the stove or in the oven.

In fact, this is now my favorite way to make bacon. Try this method, whether you need a little bacon to jazz up a salad or sandwich or want some to go with your eggs for breakfast.

Check out my other microwave recipes, too.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

border="0" alt="corn on the cob" hspace="5" width="200"
height="170" align="left"/>It’s the height of corn season (and tomato season, watermelon season, cantaloupe season – can you see why I love summer?). Enjoy it with my easy grilled corn on the cob recipe. Grilling gives the corn a smoky flavor that is truly outstanding.

Serve this corn on the cob with one of my flavored butter recipes to really kick it up a notch. The herb butter or smoky tomato butter would be awesome.

Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

border="0" alt="chocolate banana bread" hspace="5" width="200"
height="140" align="left"/>If you’re a fan of frozen chocolate bananas (you know, the kind you get at a fair or on the boardwalk at the beach), you will love this chocolate banana bread recipe. It has a rich texture, almost cake-like and it is made doubly delicious with the addition of chocolate chips. Make sure you use very ripe bananas for this banana bread. It will make it nice and sweet.

Watermelon Smoothies

border="0" alt="watermelon smoothie" hspace="5" width="200"
height="140" align="left"/>Watermelon is one of my kids’ favorite fruits. But the high water content does not make it ideal for making smoothies. This watermelon smoothie recipe shows you how you to make a fresh smoothie with summer’s favorite fruit without it being too watered down.

Feel free to vary the type of yogurt you use for this recipe. Greek yogurt with honey would work well, or for a less sweet smoothie, try making it with unsweetened yogurt.

Healthy Snack Ideas

border="0" alt="healthy popcorn" hspace="5" width="150"
height="200" align="left"/>You know kids need snacks to get through the day. But you don’t want them choosing sugar-laden, empty-calorie treats all the time. These healthy snack ideas will give you plenty of unique options for getting through the afternoon slump in tasty, nutritious ways.

My healthy popcorn recipe, for example, tastes like a salty, crunchy treat. But it is actually made with a secret ingredient that is full of B vitamins and amino acids.

Don’t feel like making snacks? No problem. I’ve got some good recommendations for healthy treats you can buy, from Sahale nuts (compare prices) (rich in fiber, protein and vitamins) to sweet potato chips (compare prices) (rich in Vitamin A and fiber). The kids will love these munchable snacks!
