Quick No-Bake Oatmeal Bars

Quick No-Bake Oatmeal Bars

I’ve been on the hunt for an easy and healthy oatmeal bar recipe for a little while now and think I’ve found a winner! What I love about this is that it’s completely customizable. Make the base the same and throw whatever else you want in there to make it perfect for you! I found a few different recipes that I really like and took from all of them to come up with this one.

Scour Off Product Demo Video

I’ve got something a little bit different for you today! I filmed this the other day and wasn’t planning on blogging about it yet but Ben has had Hand, Foot & Mouth disease over the past few days so my chances to film anything else were pretty scarce! Thankfully he was feeling much better today so our house is almost back to normal! More on how we battled the virus next week!

Anyway, here you go! A quick demonstration showing Scour Off in action on my very dirty stovetop.

Have You Checked Out My Advertising Options Lately?

I’ve really been working hard around here lately, in case you haven’t noticed! I’ve been trying to think of what I can offer to advertisers to really make it worth their money to display their ad here or to work with me on their projects.

Over the past few months, I’ve done a few paid campaigns that I have been really happy with. I enjoy working with small or large companies with varying budgets. I am always happy to discuss any opportunity to be sure that it is the best fit for both of us!

Here are a few promotional posts that I have written that I am very proud of:

I’d absolutely love to work with you to help achieve your blogging goals, promote your product, or celebrate your cause. I have tweaked the sponsorship options but kept the prices low so that  cost is never an issue. You can go directly to my Advertise/PR page to see all of your advertising options but because I like to make things as easy as possible for you, here they are below!

As always, I’m up for chatting about your needs so contact me here or on social media to get the conversation started!

Duggar Bread Recipe

Duggar Bread Recipe

Contrary to what the name suggests, this is not a recipe from bread made from Duggar family members. It is however, a recipe that I got from one of their books so I feel a bit like they are coming into my kitchen and helping me bake. Well, they’re sitting there telling me what to do and not actually doing any of the work. Lazy Duggars! It is from their book A Love That Multiplies (affiliate link) and it is a great read. In addition to learning lots about their family and parenting techniques, they also share many of their family’s favorite recipes.

Duggar Bread Recipe

My mother in law made this amazing and beautiful blackberry jam from blackberries picked right here in our yard. It is such a perfect pairing for this yummy bread, especially when it’s fresh out of the oven with a nice swipe of butter on it. Since I started making this bread, we haven’t bought any store bought bread. I love that I know exactly what’s in this. It makes me feel better about feeding something to my family when I can actually pronounce all of the ingredients!

Duggar Bread Recipe
Yields 4
A simple and delicious bread recipe with only 6 ingredients!
Write a review
  1. 3 cups hot water
  2. 6 tablespoons oil
  3. 2 tablespoons honey
  4. 1 packet active dry yeast
  5. 8 cups flour
  6. 2 1/4 teaspoons salt
  1. Combine water, oil, honey and yeast in a large bowl
  2. Let sit until foamy (10-15 mins)
  3. Slowly combine flour and salt into the liquid mixture while mixer is running using dough hook attachment. Once combined, increase to medium speed and mix for 7-8 minutes. If you don't have a stand mixer, mix in the bowl until combined, then kneed on a floured surface for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Place large ball in a bowl, cover, and let rest for 20 minutes.
  5. Divide into 4 balls and form into loaf shape. For smaller loaves, divide into 6.
  6. Place in greased pans, cover and let rise for at least 1.5-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  1. The original recipe calls for whole wheat flour. I usually use white flour which is perfect so you could use whatever flour that you prefer. Although I have heard that gluten free flour does not work well.

 I bought bags at the Dollar Store that are open at the top and close with twist ties and they make the perfect bread bags. Each loaf lasts us about 2-3 days and I find myself having a slice toasted with butter and jam for a snack throughout the day. I freeze the other bags so that they stay fresh and just pull one out when we finish a loaf. My Dad suggested that I figure out exactly how much it costs me to make each loaf so I’ll do that soon as update this post once I do!
