Peanut Butter & Chocolate ‘Butterfinger’ Granola

Peanut Butter and Chocolate 'Butterfinger' GranolaThis granola should come with a warning label:

Dangerously Addictive! May cause intense desire to stuff face with granola, midnight cravings, and breakfast-related giddiness.

Something magical happens when rolled oats, cornflakes and peanuts are coated in a sticky, peanut buttery mixture and toasted until crunchy. Add in some dark chocolate chips, and it’s just… daaammmnnn!

One thing that you may not know about me (but have probably guessed) is that I really like candy bars. Snickers, Reese’s, Milky Ways… the list goes on.

Oooh, and then there’s M&Ms! Peanut M&Ms, crispy M&Ms, peanut butter M&Ms, pretzel M&Ms, birthday cake M&Ms – seriously, how do that get them to taste like birthday cake!? But I digress.

While this recipe doesn’t contain any actual candy bars, it was loosely based on one of my other favorites: Butterfingers. Maybe I was too influenced by all those Simpsons commercials (anyone remember those?), but I just really like Butterfingers! So I decided to make a “crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery” granola.

And the result? Wowzah! (If I do say so myself).

True fact: Since making this granola, I haven’t eaten any more of the Butterfinger bar I currently have stashed in the fridge. Sorry Nestlé, but this granola is far better than that candy bar.

Funky ‘n’ Fabulous Smoothies

S-M-O-O-T-H-I-E-S! Recently I’ve really started to love smoothies. It’s bordering on an obsession. My old attitude towards smoothies was pretty much “Do I really want to clean the blender for a glass of fruit?”. Yes, yes I do. When you add in a variety of fruits, some yogurt for creaminess – and perhaps a little…

Tofu Sushi

Soy-Glazed Tofu Sushi (or Sushi Bowl)

I simply have to share a story with you (don’t worry – this won’t take all day). When I was investigating the “international” aisle of the supermarket, I was about to grab a packet of nori sheets off the shelves when a – let’s say “well-padded” – person pushed me out the way. The woman grabbed…
