It’s our FIRST recipe of 2017. Hooray! What a better way to start the day than with these nutty cacao granola bars. It’s important to eat breakfast, and even though I often don’t myself (HELLO New Year’s Resolution #22) I will tell you that you should! I always want to make resolutions, but I am hesitant because I am not the best at holding myself accountable for things.
In 2017 though, our main goal is to get stuff done like the bosses we are. Like start some sort of schedule for our Youtube Channel! This recipes includes a how to make video below, and it was so fun to create! I am not incredibly pleased with it, but I am happy enough to share it with you guys! Thanks to Zach for doing the narration! We really wanna expand into video and live video this year because I think it would be a great way to let you guys get to know us better, but it can be hard to get past being camera shy. Video is one of the best ways to connect with readers and I suppose watchers! 🙂
