thursday things.

It’s really windy out there.

Like, really windy.  I’m an absolute mess…  Hair tossed, bangs uncombed, scarf flailing.  Good thing I didn’t wear a skirt today.  I tried calling home…  It didn’t work though and I couldn’t hear a single thing.  I hope whatever my mom had to say wasn’t important.

My car and I haven’t been getting along very well.  He is rude and likes to misbehave.  He doesn’t listen to me.  He enjoys his bad smell, broken turn signals, and flat tires…  And those are the good days.

Onto better things…  Like snacking on granola bars.  They were so quick to make that I’m still changing into my sports bra.  Don’t look though.  Rude

I nuked these bad boys on high for 30 seconds.  I wanted to eat it, but decided to add oats instead.  I think that only made matters worse.  That’s how things go sometimes.

Chocolate Oatmeal Snack Bars

Adapted from Love Veggies and Yoga

(yields 6 bars)


1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup organic crunchy peanut butter

3 tablespoons milk

1 cup rolled oats

2 tablespoons honey


Melt the first three ingredients together in the microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring and checking.  Add the oats and honey. Stir to combine (if the mixture is not dry enough, add more oats one tablespoon at a time).

Press mixture into 6 bars, fold them onto freezer or parchment paper, and place in refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes, or until bars have solidified.

  2. I am so glad you like the bars and made them. Thanks for blogging about them.

    The anecdote for bad weather and wind is of course melted chocolate and PB. Enjoy :)

  3. It’s really windy here, too! And rainy. Awful combination when one is trying to use an umbrella.These seem like they would make an awesome on the go snack. Wholesome and such a delicious combination of flavors :)
