I ran over my niece with a scooter. And then she lobbied me for cookies. What cookie says we were in a scooter accident on vacation? Well, Rocky Road, obviously.
This cake is fantastically coconut and buttermilk, and since it’s just one cute little layer in a skillet pan, no one expects it to look like a work of art. Just a little glaze and some toasted coconut are all the toppings this baby needs.
This simple granola recipe is one of my favorites. It’s chock full of nuts and dried fruits, with a touch of sweetness from honey. It’s a great way to get a little energy for your morning.
I’m sure there are plenty of fun and fancy ways to add coconut and almonds to fudge. But seriously, I was having one of those what-can-I-throw-together-in-5-minutes kind of days. And it worked out perfectly!
These brownies kind of had quite an effect on me. Apparently the chocolate-caramel-coconut combination is my own personal form of ambrosia. I had to send extra brownies in the kids lunches to keep myself from eating the whole pan.
I was a little worried that the gaggle of teens at my house would turn their noses up at these “healthy” waffles. I warned them that they were whole-grain. They literally answered by saying, “We don’t care. We want the waffles.”
Maybe you’ve heard me tell you before how often we eat popcorn, and how much we love coconut. It’s only natural that I should put coconut and popcorn together. Honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t done it before now.
When I spied these completely adorable Bunny Tails recently, I knew I had to give them a try myself. Partly because they’re adorable, but mostly because they are coconut. I can’t wait to make these for our Easter celebration!
I don’t want to brag, but this might be one of the most brilliant concoctions I have ever dreamed up. I wish I had thought about this when we had the big krispie-treat-contest at the family reunion 2 years ago. I totally would have blown them away.
Let’s not forget that it is now November. I have no idea where this year went, and I can’t decide whether I’m happy or sad to have it behind me. But that is beside the point. The point is, it’s fall, and I needed some fall flavors in these bars.
