Eat: No Bake Energy Bites (guest recipe)

27 Feb
Here’s a recipe from my latest guest contributor (also a cousin)…her trail name pending but the horse’s name is Geranto. He specializes in tours of Colombian coffee country).
I wanted to share one of my favorite snacks for hiking… so yummers!

No Bake Energy Bites

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup of any nut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Mix by hand and pack for the trail! 


Thanks, cuz—and Geranto. They sound easy and delish.

Greatest Granola Bars. The Quest for the Tusk and Cup Recipe

12 Dec

I am obsessed. Have you ever tasted something just so good that you knew you’d spend your life casually trying to replicate it, knowing that you never would? That is the homemade granola bar at Tusk and Cup coffee shop. Three flavors, equally delicious, addictive and still marginally “healthy”, I know I’ll never succeed in creating their magic, but I am still going to try. Stay tuned.

Right there, in that white case on the counter. That’s where they keep the gold.
