Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
Love it! This is my go to granola recipe. After making it several times as written I have made a few changes to the basic ingredients to increase the protein content. I reduced the oats to four cups, and replaced them with 1.5c flax seed, 1.5c almond meal, and 1.5c pepitas. Additionally I leave out the fruit and increase the nuts & seeds called for in the recipe by 1/2 cup each. I have saved this as Nutty Granola in My Fitness Pal if you use that app, 186 calories per quarter cup. Additionally when serving I add a tablespoon of chia seeds to each bowl--if you haven't tried them yet this recipe is the perfect thing to stir them into, so so good for you!

Thin Mint Green Monster

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
Amazing!!! I used almond milk instead of coconut as it's all I had, and mini chocolate chips instead of cacao, still delicious. After my first try I've been adding a lot more spinach, maybe three fistfuls. I would also add a caveat about the amount of mint extract--I used Adam's brand, which is apparently more concentrated than others, I ended up having to double the recipe to cut the extreme mint (no hardship there, just a headsup to start small and add more extract if needed)

Grilled Chicken Flatbread

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Excellent! This was the first time I've tried cooking creme and it was good! Next time I plan to add some roasted garlic to the other toppings, we love garlic! I morphed this recipe with the Grilled Dough recipe here on allrecipes, instead of using frozen pizza dough & cooking it in the oven we whipped up some fresh dough and cooked it on the grill. Best pizza I've ever made. (Make sure to follow the grilling instructions in the comments, they were super helpful)
