Day 60

D has a homemade coconut chocolate granola bar and a few dried apple slices for snack today.
I used a different recipe, this one has rice krispies in it.  D really seems to like it.

D had a friend over from school today.  I didn't get much info from the mom so I wasn't really sure what to make for lunch.  I wasn't sure of her likes and dislikes.  I hedged my bets and went with pb&j and apple bunnies.  It was a success!  I made 3 plates all the same.
Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola Bars II

1/4 C butter
1/4 C coconut oil
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C agave syrup
1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp coconut extract
2 C Rice Krispie cereal
2 C rolled oats
1 C shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 C mini chocolate chips

In a small sauce pan melt butter and coconut oil together.  Add sugar, agave syrup, flour and extract.  Stir till smooth, set aside to cool.  In a large bowl, mix rice cereal, oats, coconut and chocolate chips.  When butter mixture has cooled add it to the cereal mixture, stir to coat evenly.  Then pour into a greased 13 x 9 in pan.  Press with wet hands or waxed paper into one even layer.  Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
