I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Quinoa Cocoa Puffs

When you want a little treat, but nothing too sweet, just pop 1 or 2 (or 5!) of these in your mouth.

1 cup puffed quinoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tsps cocoa powder
1 tbsp chopped peanuts
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp honey

1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp vegetable oil

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.

Cream together the peanut butter, vanilla and honey and add to the dry ingredients.

Roll up into teaspoon sized balls, scraping the mixture off your hands regularly to make the job easier. (Sorry, no pictures of the actual rolling....didn't want to get the camera all mucked up)

Set on a plate in the fridge to chill.

Meanwhile melt together the chocolate chips and vegetable oil.  Stir until smooth.

Dip each ball into the chocolate, either from a spoon like I did or directly into your cup or bowl.

Place in the fridge to set.
