Peanut butter dark chocolate coconut caramel saltine granola bars...

Hello lovelies!!

This is now my second time writing this post, my first one got deleted. 😔 
Anyways back on track now!! 

If you did not read the title of this post go back and read it now!! (I'm waiting...)

Alright, does that title not sound DIVINE?! Like super delicious, mouth watering, award winning wonderful yummy delicious divine? Well, I am here to say that I have made those!! These are super yummy!! And **SPOILER ALERT** these are healthy!! Yay!! Well, these aren't like super kale, salad etc... Healthy but they are healthier then the store bought granola bars!! Yay!! 
So I was searching through Pinterest, cookbooks, and online and finally found a recepie. I found it on Pinterest. How this recepie that I found was for peanut butter granola bars, but I decided to put a kate- style spin on them. I added dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, caramel, and saltines. 
So after diving into my pantry (not literally 😊) I found all if these ingredients and decided to add them in. What I did was bake then granola bars and the a deed all of those ingridients. 

So the first thing I did was melt some peanut butter in the microwave.

After the peanut butter melted I drizzled it on top, and then plopped on some chocolate chips, then sprinkled on some shredded coconut, and for a grand finale I drizzled on some caramel sauce. 
It looks show stopping, and tastes like a famous cookie recepie, but they're not cookies they're GRANOLA BARS!! So you can eat them whenever and wherever. These granola bars are my go to snack, and they're SUPER easy to transport. 

So here comes the magic moment, drumroll please. Now, the picture of the granola bars fresh out of the oven. 

  <--- these are fresh out of the oven and still hot. This is the best time to cut them. 😀

So here comes the food fashions show!!


 la la!! 

 Oh my!! Were getting up close and personal now!!

These are soo good, I totally reccomend you to try them!!

so here's my name for them: Magic granola bars


I mix in in what I call "add ins"... Example- chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, dried fruit, and even saltines. 😊☺️ 

Now the other directions are to bake them for 22 mins in oven at 350 degrees. 

Then I put them in the fridge to harden, they are super yummy and easy to make. 

Alright thanks girly girls for reading this!! I hope you try this recepie out, and if you do leave a comment below!! 

Lots of love,

Kate's playlist...

Hello lovelies!!!

I just had a lightbulb moment!! I finally figured out how to post pics to blogger, so I figured I would post a post with pictures! And I decided to post something I've wanted to do for a while... My playlists!! It is going to be a three part series of my favorite playlists and songs. I use spotifiy a lot so that's where most of my playlists are made. So today I will be showing you pics of my favorite songs and playlists! I am currently jamming out to them so let's hop right in!!

PLAYLIST #1-- "Happy Happy" playlist. This is my playlist that I love to jam out to when getting ready or doing things. Sometimes it's just dancing... :). It's a mix of jaminn' oldies, and fun pop songs.

Song one- Happy together by The Turtles 
This song is a fun happy oldie that puts you in a super great mood. Yes, even on a Monday morning!!

Song two- Here comes the Sun by The Beatles
This song makes me so happy. I mean who doesn't love a song where the sun is shining and everybody is loving?? 

Song three- Wake me up before you go-go by Wham! 
This is one of my favorite songs in this playlist... It is an oldie but it's super fun to sing along too. "Wake me up before you go- go don't wanna..." (Those are some of the lyrics ) 

Song four- Back home by Andy Grammer 
This song has a super fun beat... It is a great dancing song!! I really get into it sometimes :)

I accidentally skipped Shower and Headphones so those are # 8&9...

Song five- Growing Old On Bleeker Street by AJR
This song is super sweet and just makes you so happy. When you listen to thus you just feel like your on top of the world. Or at least I do....

Song six- Walkin' on sunshine by Katrina and the waves
This is an 80's song but everyone knows about it. I love this song it is also one of my favs in this playlist. I mean who wouldn't want to feel like their walking on sunshine?! It just puts everyone in a great happy mood. 

Song seven- The lazy song by Bruno Mars
I'm pretty sure that everyone, well almost everyone..., knows about this song. "Have some really nice... BREAKFAST" Lol, am I the only one who shouts that when that line comes on? This song just makes you feel happy even though you have to get out of bed. I mean, unless your having a lazy day? ;)

Song eight- Shower by Becky G.
I don't know about you but I JAM (emphasis on JAM) out in my room. I dance all around and sing at the top of my lungs... :). This is the perfect song to do that to. It has a fun beat and is a pop song. 

Song nine- Headohones by Matt Nathanson
This song is just great, it is a newer song and it's very fun to dance to. If you learn the lyrics it's also fun to sing to.

I hope you guys enjoyed my happy happy playlist. It puts me in a great mood even on Monday morning when I have to get up early. Everyone should find something or do something that makes them happy. For me, that's blogging and listening to music. :). Two things I'm doing now.  

Love ya,
Kate <3
