Biscoff Granola Bars guest post

Biscoff barsIt’s the middle of the month, and I am already over budget on the groceries.  I can’t help myself.  Sometimes I see something fabulous like mini-bell peppers or blood orange Chobani greek yogurt, or heaven help me, Biscoff spread, and I just have to buy it.

Now school is starting, and I have to get to start packing sack lunches, and what is there to pack?  There’s no way the kids will be eating bell peppers, and Robb wants all the Chobani to himself, which means I now have to share my Biscoff spread.  I’m sort of jealous and selfish, and so this idea is not my favorite.

On the other hand, turning a fabulous ingredient like Biscoff spread into something new and delicious and homemade like Biscoff Granola Bars is kind of fun.  Plus, I’m sure the kids will love finding these cute bars in their lunches.

I’ll probably eat mine for breakfast.

Six Great Lunchbox Cookies

I’m SO ready for school to start.  And I’m SO not ready for school to start.  The homework struggles… the carpooling… the getting up early to cook a hot breakfast.  Ugh.  Maybe I’ll go back to bed, while I can.

In the meantime, I’m leaving you with some of my favorite school lunch cookies.  These are all cookies which pack easily (they don’t have frosting, and they’re not too cakey, so they shouldn’t make too big a mess) and taste fantastic.

school lunch cookies

1: Lemon Crinkles, which has become both a family, and a JFC classic.

2: Biscoff Oatmeal, because you can’t go wrong with Biscoff spread.

3: Chocolate Marshmallow, which looks innocent, but has a marshmallow surprise inside.

4: Toffee Almond, which is perfect for dunking in milk.

5: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, my favorite cookie from my childhood.

6: Triple Chocolate Chunk, for your chocoholics.

Enjoy your school year!!
