It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe

We are constantly looking for yummy, good-for-you snacks.  Our family recently discovered that we all really love granola! I mean, what’s not to love?  Oats, nuts, dried fruits, maple syrup, all baked until it’s toasted and golden brown.  Drooling yet?  While store-bought granola is good, there is nothing quite like homemade granola.  I’m excited to share this vegan granola recipe that is not only delicious, but so easy to make!

A Versatile Snack

Granola makes a great breakfast or snack and is great on yogurt, smoothie bowls, with fruit, on ice cream, with almond milk or even on its own!  Since we made our first batch this week, we have been trying it in every way we can think of.  It’s interesting to see how we all eat it differently. My 12-year-old prefers to eat it straight out of a bowl, on its own.  My 8-year-old eats it like cereal with some almond milk.  My 5-year-old eats it with strawberries, for breakfast.  My husband loves it on top of dairy free yogurt with berries.  I personally love it on smoothie bowls (which by the way is the next recipe I will be sharing this week, so stay tuned!) I love that we can make a big batch and enjoy it in so many different ways!

You can add raisins or other dried fruits, brown sugar, different types of nuts (almonds or walnuts maybe)… the possibilities are endless. We’ve even thrown some in a little container to take with us. It’s a great on the go snack!  The best part is, it only takes 5 minutes to prep with my easy-read measuring cup set, small mix ‘n scraper, stainless steel whisk and my other awesome new Pampered Chef kitchen tools!

What would you put in your granola? Comment below and let us know!

  • Beth

    I love granola, but it is so expensive I rarely buy it. I don’t know why I never thought to make my own. This recipe looks easy enough.

  • Chubskulit Rose

    Homemade granolas are the best because you can put anything that you want in it. I love it with pecans, walnuts, and cranberries.

  • Pam
    February 2, 2019

    Homemade granola is so much better than storebought. Most of it has honey in it, though, so it’s nice to see a vegan recipe!

  • Ricci
    February 2, 2019

    I LOVE granola but have never made my own before! I need to try this recipe!

    What a great and healthy recipe. I am going to try this out for our next road trip to have something tasty on hand that isn’t processed!

    I always enjoy a good granola. That looks good. Would love to give it a try one day.

  • Norma

    Awesome recipe! I love eating oats and granola. I tried one time to make my own granola and I had to eat it myself because nobody liked it. This recipe sounds delicious. I will try it soon.

    When I’m to have a tight day, I run for a heavier breakfast that usually includes some granola with yoghurts or a smoothie. And it sorts me! Your recipe is just as yummy!

    I always have granola for breakfast, I just love it, thanks for sharing!

    Nice suggestion. I am inspired. Today, I had overnight oatmeal with yogurt and chia seeds. Tomorrow, maybe I can have this. 🙂

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy

    This recipe looks awesome. I love that it’s vegan. Granola is such a perfect, portable snack that I can take with me everywhere.

  • Gena

    I love it! Such an easy and delicious recipe. I use granola basically every day – it’s much cheaper and healthier to DIY following your recipe!

  • Dennis Littley
    February 1, 2019

    Your granola looks delicious and the recipe looks so easy it makes sense to make it at home! This would be perfect for breakfast or over some fresh seasonal fruit.

  • Teresa

    I’ve made homemade granola a few times and I always seem to do something wrong. It always comes out a bit tasting burnt? I will have to try agian I think.

  • Karen Dawkins

    I am a huge fan of homemade granola, but I’ve never made it with coconut. I pinned your recipe to make this weekend! Thanks so much.

  • Genny Gall (whatsupdearie)
    February 1, 2019

    This is a great recipe. However, I have never try to make them. We always buy our granola cereal, and we love to eat it with berries and yogurt as well as your husband. This is our preferences, and we love that way. Nevertheless, there are always different ideas to try something new.

  • Heather
    February 1, 2019

    This is making my mouth water! I need to try this. Glad I saw it before heading to the supermarket!

  • Paula @ I'm Busy Being Awesome

    This sounds delicious, I love to make my own granola with dry fruits and nuts

  • Terri Beavers

    I love the idea of making my own. My boys love granola so I will be trying this soon. This will also make a great school snack for my oldest some. Thank you for sharing

    i just started making overnight oats again and realized that this version would be an interesting idea to try! im a huge granola fan but never thought to try and make it vegan for a few friends of mine who are! cant wait to try it!

    • Heather Castillo
      February 1, 2019

      I still haven’t tried to make overnight oats, but I would love to!

  • Alli Smith

    Pecans are my favorite nuts so I have to try your vegan granola recipe. It looks so scrumptious! I love a good granola recipe and this one looks amazing.

  • candy

    Making granola is simple and I don’t understand why more people don’t make their own. I must like this granola because I see I commented a year ago. We do love our granola.

  • Joan
    February 1, 2019

    Nothing better than a granola breakfast always, simple fast and scrumptious at the same time and this looks great.

  • Cristina Petrini
    February 1, 2019

    It does not really fit in my taste, I admit it, but I think it could still be a healthy idea for breakfast or snack!

  • Alexandra
    February 1, 2019

    This sounds like just a wonderful granola recipe, and a great breakfast recipe to have on hand! Delicious!

  • rika
    February 7, 2018

    I love granola but don’t buy it often because store-bought granola contains a lot of sugar. This recipe looks amazing and healthy!

  • Sandy N Vyjay
    February 7, 2018

    Granola is a healthy option. We eat lots of granola bars especially when travelling. This is a good homemade recipe that hopefully, we should be able to make.

  • Nikka Shae
    February 6, 2018

    I’m always looking for healthier options too. This is the perfect healthy snack.

  • ANOSA
    February 6, 2018

    Been making some of this before and this is a great reminder for me to reconsider making granola snacks again. We’ll see if this will be my very first recipe to try after a long time.

  • Heather
    February 6, 2018

    I love granola and my kids love granola. I love the idea of making it at home and in a healthier way with less sugar in it.

  • Ching
    February 5, 2018

    what a concidence! I was just asking my friend where I could buy just granola because I wanted to have it over plain greek yogurt. I never thought of making it myself! love it.

  • Pam
    February 5, 2018

    My granddaughter is allergic to milk, so I am always on the lookout for good vegan recipes to try. This granola sounds like a great breakfast.

  • Sarah Bailey
    February 5, 2018

    I have to admit I do love granola – it is such a good way to start the morning, but I have never thought about putting my own together. I am definitely going to have to give this a try!

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All
    February 5, 2018

    This would be perfect for my brother. He loves granola and almost always has some with him in the car, at work and at home.

  • Emily
    February 5, 2018

    This seems like a great granola recipe! My kids like to put granola on their yogurt and it is also a quick and simple snack to grab. I like that it it healthy but still fills them up !

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh
    February 5, 2018

    I love making homemade granola. It’s one of those snacks that are always better when made at home.

  • Candy
    February 5, 2018

    Making granola is something I have been done nag for over 36 years. Always nice to see similar recipes.

  • Angelic Sinova
    February 5, 2018

    My friend is always saying that there’s nothing like homemade granola (hers really is the best) but I’ve yet to make some for myself yet. Maybe I’ll finally try it out this weekend!

  • Terri Steffes
    February 5, 2018

    I think this sounds so good. I love granola. Are other granolas made with animal products? I can’t wait to give this a try.

  • Farida
    February 5, 2018

    This is something I am willing to try because buying granola in the grocery is a bit expensive. Similarly, adding fiber to one’s food will definitely make us healthier beings!

  • Alison Rost
    February 5, 2018

    It’s a must try especially since it’s granola and you can basically put it on everything, smoothie bowls, overnight oats, or as a snack on its own. I love how easy it is to put together!

  • Jeanette
    February 5, 2018

    I love granola anyway you can give it to me. This looks absolutely amazing and I will definitely try it.

  • Amber Myers
    February 5, 2018

    I’ve always enjoyed granola, but I rarely have it. I really should! This seems easy enough for me to try!

  • Robin Rue
    February 5, 2018

    I eat granola almost every morning. It goes so good in my yogurt. I can’t wait to try yours.
