Recipe: Vegan Bran-Banana Bread

When two full loaves of vegan banana bread are gone within an hour of baking them, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve baked. I mean, I have three kids who love to eat, but still. Sheesh. Carb, much? I wanted to share this week’s recipe, because miraculously, my older son wolfed it down, too….

#Easy #Homemade #Chocolate Granola Bars: Nut-free for the kiddies

Happy Tuesday, friends! Over the weekend, I tried my hand (again) at making homemade granola bars for my kids’ school lunches.
