Our trip to FLA was wonderful. My Mom is doing great. She looks fabulous. We walked on the beach everyday. It is always so much work to get to Florida, but I am always glad we went. My sisters and I are so lucky there are so many great people in Florida.
My Husband and I were also fortunate enough to see my Florida sister twice. It was a blast hanging out with her. My Sister made this fabulous Strawberry Cake for me pictured above. Someday, I will post the recipe. She also made a lovely Meyer Lemon Cheesecake on my birthday. WE ate and drank way to much on vacation. I actually sleep all night. 8 hours of sleep is quite an accomplishment for me.
The Sunsets are always so amazing
So, we are back home trying to go back to regular food. Desserts were still screaming for me. I have always loved No Bakes. They are always such a wonderful little treat. When we were younger, my sisters and I used to make them and eat them out of the pan on the stove. Burned our tongues every time.

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup flax seed meal
Line a 8x8, 9x9, or 10x10 pan with parchment paper. This will vary the thickness. Set aside.
Melt the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil in a medium size saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until mixture melts. When melted, add chocolate chips and continue to stir. About a minute or so.
Remove pan from heat and stir in remaining ingredients until combined.
Pour mixture into your pan. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, until set up. Cut into pieces and pig out!
Stove top cooking in one pan ~~ EASY ~~
Pour into the pan. I used a 10 x 10 pan. A smaller pan would make thicker bars
At the Pier.. thanks Mom for the great Vacation.
