Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal, coconut and chocolate all work together in these cookies that are not only delicious but also totally satisfying. Since they have more good stuff in them than most cookies, I don’t feel bad tucking them in a lunch box or having one with my coffee.

Oven-Dried Figs

Our trees produced more figs than usual this year, so I tried my hand at drying some in the oven. It’s an easy, low-maintenance method with a sweet payoff.

Val’s Granola

If possible try to get unsweetened dried fruit at a local health food store for this yummy granola. Who needs the extra sugar when it is so tasty on its own?
