The Snack Jar

Our family's in transition and our kitchen is confused. Some of us are taking our already-pretty-healthy diet to a whole new level.  Others are just beginning to become interested in changing some not-so-healthy habits (I'm over-the-moon excited about this :: it's a big deal).

We keep a glass snack jar filled with granola for times when the munchies strike.  It sits on the counter so there's always a nutritious choice in sight.

I'm testing a new recipe today, to add to our snack jar repertoire.  The base is made with oats, banana, coconut and almond flour.  Chocolate chips are sprinkled in for sweetness and because we're making them at home, we can choose to use the highest quality possible.  

I'm giving hubby the final vote as to whether or not these cookies are snack jar worthy.  I'll keep you posted.......
