No-Bake Homemade Cliff Bars

I absolutely love Cliff Bars and was so excited when I came across this recipe. What’s great about it is it gives you a base recipe and you’re able to substitute different nuts, fruits and also add in other ingredients.


We followed the directions pretty close, but when we cut the bars out of the pan and some of it turned to crumbs. Not close enough! In order to stay away from nuts, we used sun butter and must not have made enough “glue” for the bars.

Adding more Butter/Honey

We wanted to make sure we didn’t put it to waste, so we got creative and put the entire mix back into the bowl. We made more butter/honey mixture and made balls out of it instead – making sure it wouldn’t fall apart.

Cliff Balls

What do you think? I guess this reiterates the importance of following directions exactly while baking, or “non-baking” in this case.

I encourage you to try these out, there are a lot of recipes out there! They are cheaper and I think taste much better than store-bought Cliff Bars.

Happy Cooking!

This is what a pan of cookies is supposed to look like right? I guess they were supposed to be 2 inches apart…
Good thing I had a bunch of dough to make up for my mistake.
This is my first attempt at making Mrs Fields style Bacon chocolate chip cookies. They were a lot flatter than I expected. Is there some sort of trick to keep the cookies from flattening out so much?

Happy baking!

Morning Eggs… Failed.

This morning I finally got the energy to get to the grocery store & restocked my kitchen. I’m not a big eater, so I don’t buy much. It makes sense. This morning I went on a limb and bought some eggs thinking I should get some more protein in my diet. I get home, unload, and right away make myself some eggs for breakfast. I enjoy them sunny side up.

First fail, I crack an egg and I know you should always open them up in a separate bowl first, but I live on the edge and fail to take caution. With my luck it cracks open and along comes bits and pieces of the shell. I wasn’t quick enough to grab them so I had to waste an almost perfectly good egg.

Next eggs I crack open and yes, I failed once again. Forgetting to put Pam on the pan. Luckily us broke college students have two pans and I was able to quickly spray on the other pan and maneuver the eggs on the failed pan to the other pan and they were a bit jumbled up but they made it.

My favorite part of sunny side up eggs is when the yolk is not cooked and I can scoop it up with my toast. Oh, it is so delicious! My egg’s yolk was completely solid. All in all they tasted like eggs, however  the point of eggs is they are quick and easy. I was that person to mess up eggs.

Happy Wednesday!
