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!

Cranberry Oatmeal Pumpkin Bars

Full of good stuff, these bars are great to grab for a quick breakfast.  (or an anytime snack) 

1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2  1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsps wheat germ (optional)

3/4 cups pumpkin pie filling
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
(even though the pie filling is spiced more ginger is always good!)

1/2 cup dried cranberries

Mix together first 6 ingredients, set aside.
In a separate bowl mix together the next 6 ingredients and gradually add to the dry.
Fold in the cranberries.

Line a 9 X 9 inch pan with parchment and spoon the batter in, spreading evenly.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. 
Cool, lift the parchment out of the pan and cut into bars.
They are moist but firm and travel well in a lunch bag.
