Wow! I feel as though its been forever since Ive posted anything! Bear with me please over the next few weeks while I get back into the swing of things! Posts will be sporadic for a little bit but hopefully I have a chance to post more often than not! Im so excited for Fall and apples, pumpkins, and all the goodies that entails, so there will for sure be some delicious Fall treats up on here! I can’t wait!

In the meantime, along with trying to get my cooking back on track, my fiance and I have been busting out home projects majorly! Im nesting big time this pregnancy! ๐Ÿ˜› This week we ordered all our fabric and foam to do a DIY coffee table makeover into an ottoman! I can’t even tell you in enough ways how excited I am for this! I have been wanting to do this FOREVER! We’ve ordered a few different fabrics, so once they get here we just need to decide what we like the best and get to work! Ill be sure to show it to you, because Im psyched!

Now! On to these scrumptious Cranberry Oatmeal Bars! I’m not sure whether to call them breakfast or dessert..I’ve been eating them as both! (My 14 month old can’t get enough either! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) They are just perfectly sweet, low cal at only 78 cals per bar! That’s
pretty amazing, considering they taste like so much more! So feel free to indulge a little! ๐Ÿ˜‰

These little beauties will satisfy your sweet tooth, without packing on the calories! Don’t like cranberries? Switch it out! I bet any dried fruit would taste heavenly in these! I can’t wait to try either some dried peaches or dried pineapple! These Cranberry Oatmeal Bars are super easy and quick to make and will last you all week! (Hopefully!) They are a perfectly light end of Summer treat..who can resist sinless sweets?! Not this pregnant lady! ๐Ÿ˜›
