Emoji Valentine Free Printable | MapleSeeds Home

I picked up a little bag of Emoji erasers a while back and decided to whip up some cute Valentines for the kids' school parties! They get so much candy as it is, so I thought this would be a great non-suagr treat!

The boys had fun cutting them out and then we just used a little dot of white glue to stick the Emoji eraser to the back of the card!

Maple Cinnamon Granola | MapleSeeds Home Blog | Recipes

Today was rainy and cold and I was in the mood to bake, partially because it warms the house up and partially because I like to bake on rainy days!

I used up the last bit if my homemade granola so that was first on the list.

4 C rolled oats (gluten free if you want)
1 c shredded unsweetened coconut
1 c chopped walnuts
1c flax seed
1 T cinnamon
1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c maple syrup

Preheat oven to 300F. 

Melt the coconut oil, and combine all the other ingredients except the maple syrup in a large bowl. Once the coconut oil is melted, pour it and the maple syrup over the ingredients and combine well. Spread the mix out on a greased cookie sheet. 

Bake for about an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Be sure to scrape the edges in and really mix the granola well so you don't end up with burnt pieces. It makes about 2 large quart mason jars full. I store the extra in the freezer and the small amount I use daily in the refrigerator. 

I love the flavor of this granola and it doesn't have any yucky preservatives or soy (which I try to avoid).
