Pecan, Coconut, and Cherry Granola

Pecan, Coconut, and Cherry Granola

by Pam on December 8, 2013

Homemade granola is so easy to make, tastes WAY better than store bought granola, and is so much healthier (if you want it to be). I decided to whip up a batch this weekend. I had an afternoon snack with this granola over some Greek coconut yogurt and it was amazing! My kids both enjoyed their granola with a bit of milk and said it was “SO GOOD”! This homemade granola is great with yogurt, as cereal, plain, and over ice cream. If you have never made your own granola – try this recipe! It is so DELICIOUS!

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking dish with the silpat mat.

Heat the coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat until just warmed and the oil has become a liquid. Set aside.

Combine the oatmeal, chopped pecans, coconut, salt, and brown sugar together in a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Add the maple syrup mixture to the granola mixture and mix well until evenly coated.

Spread out evenly on the baking sheet.

Place into the oven and bake, stirring every 10 minutes, for 30-40 minutes, or until it’s golden brown and crispy. Cool completely on the baking sheet before adding the dried cherries. Pour the homemade granola into an airtight container. Enjoy!

Steak Soft Tacos

Steak Soft Tacos

by Pam on February 14, 2013

I had a craving for steak tacos earlier in the week so I threw some together for dinner. I simply seasoned the steaks and cooked them in my grill pan before chopping them up into bite sized pieces. I slathered some refried beans on the flour tortilla then topped the steak tacos with avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and green onions for a delicious taco that satisfied my Mexican food craving. We all loved these tacos and my husband enjoyed the leftovers the following day. This was a quick and easy meal that tasted fantastic.

Season both sides of the steak with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Heat a large grill pan that has been coated with cooking spray over medium high heat. Cook the steaks for 3 minutes on the first side, then flip and continue to cook for a couple of minutes, or until the steak has reached the desired degree of doneness. Side Note: My steaks were thin but if yours are thicker you will need to cook them longer. Place the steaks onto a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into bite sized chunks.

Heat the refried beans in a pan over medium heat, stirring often, until hot. Wrap the flour tortillas in a paper towel and cook in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or until warm and pliable. Spread the hot refried beans down the center of the warm tortillas then top with steak pieces followed by lettuce, avocado, cheddar cheese, tomato, and green onions. Serve with salsa and sour cream if desired. Enjoy.
