Listen, guys, this treat is the bomb. It’s so good. We found Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter awhile back and have been making yummy after school snacks with it ever since. Just peruse their Instagram account and try not to crawl through the screen and eat it all.
5 Minute No Bake PB Granola Slice
(V) (VG) (DF) Serves 12-14
An easy and really good quick slice for when you need a little pick me up and best of all its good for you!
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup puffed brown rice
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup ground flaxseed
½ cup honey or maple syrup
½ cup Pic’s Smooth Peanut Butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large pan blend the wet ingredients and warm on a low heat just to make everything a bit softer.
Mix very well to bring it all together (It will look curdled but don’t panic, keep mixing)
Remove from the heat and add the dry ingredients
Mix thoroughly to combine well and make sure all the seeds are well distributed
Pour the mixture into a shallow lined baking tray and press down firmly (I like to use a wide-bottomed glass)
Pop into the fridge to firm up for at least an hour then cut into slices.
Store in the fridge.
Many of us likely have a dream of taking the family on an epic road trip around the country, making memories that will last a lifetime. Problem is, you drive a small SUV or crossover since you couldn’t stomach getting a minivan or the thought of a gas guzzling full-size SUV – you know, vehicles with towing capacity. Allow us to revive your family road trip dreams thanks to the all new Airstream Basecamp – a modern trailer for the modern family. Designed to be towable with a variety of small and mid-sized SUVs and Crossovers, Basecamp was hand crafted in Jackson Center, Ohio and comes loaded with features like convertible rear space for eating, sleeping, lounging or storing gear, a large rear cargo hatch and flexible storage space with tie downs, a bathroom with toilet and shower (including shower head pass through), a kitchen with a cooktop, stainless steel sink and refrigerator, and a wireless Bose Bluetooth Soundlink Color speaker. It’s the lightest trailer in the entire Airstreem fleet with a base weight of just 2,585 pounds. National Parks, you’re on notice. We’re coming for you.
Remember that time everyone was freaking out because people were getting E coli at Chipotle? Neither do we (selective memory FTW) – besides, shorter lines are awesome. In an effort to put all that lost business behind them, Chipotle now has a new trick up their sleeve to lure you back to their restaurants: free tacos for your kids. “Every Sunday in September, kids eat FREE when you buy a burrito, bowl, an order of tacos or salad.” They’ll even throw in a free Dragons Love Tacos activity sheet to boot. Nice touch there but, seriously, you had us at free tacos (we’ll be fine). Get the deets here.
“Are you really still paying for that?” When you have kids you pay for a lot of things. Diapers, wipes, food, bottles, binkies etc. Then you add on all your normal bills and life becomes stressful. In your 30’s you begin to pay for so many different things you start to lose track. Take this for example just the other day my darling wife says “what did you buy at Amazon last week for $9?” “Nothing as I recall.” Well, it turns out when we cut the cord last year but wanted to watch Homeland (Quinns not dead) I added on Showtime to our Prime account. Well, it’s been months and I had forgotten about it and we haven’t watched Showtime in Prime in that ensuing time.
Truebill would have fixed that. Truebill is an app that scours all of your subscriptions and keeps you up to date on what you are paying for, when and how much. You have a one-stop shop where you can cancel and unneeded services instantly and use that money for more important things like late night Wendys runs. All those handy subscriptions really add up by the end of the year so just think about how much money you could be saving with this FREE service. Download today and thank us later.
