i got this recipe from my friend mel. 
make them right this second... you won't regret it.

the goods you'll need:
*2 c old fashioned oats
*1 c raw nuts
*1/2 c raw seeds
*1 c shredded coconut
*1/2 c ground flaxseed
*1/3 c peanut butter
*2/3 c honey
*3 Tbs unsalted butter (i use earth balance)
*2 tsp vanilla
*1/4 tsp cinnamon
*pinch of salt
*1 c dark chocolate (i use about 1/2 c)

how to make the yumminess:
*preheat over to 300 
*toast oats, nuts, seeds & coconut on a cookie sheet in the oven until golden brown, about 15 mins.
*meanwhile, bring peanut butter, honey, butter, vanilla, cinnamon & salt to a simmer in a small saucepan. reduce heat to low.
*transfer toasted mixture to a large mixing bowl & add the flaxseed.
*pour the wet mixture into the bowl & stir until fully combined. add the chocolate chips.
*transfer the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. use the back of a spoon to pack it in really well.
*bake for 30 mins.

we are in uganda, africa at this very moment to bring our amos home!
i have thought many times about seeing our boy for the first time
& learning his personality.
i've thought about the emotion that i would feel when i held him for the
first time...
but now it is actually happening!!! we are, at this moment, loving on our little one.
what a joy & an honor to be asked to welcome this sweet boy into our family forever!
Father, give our family grace for this transition!!!
our Father has gone before us & He is sovereign in all things! :)
keep praying for us!!!

AHHHHHHH!!!!!! I CANNOT wait to see that sweet little one! We adopted our babies from our state's foster care system and there is nothing like it! It just shows what God did for us in such a tangible way. It's not always easy, but my oh my, is it ever wonderful! I'm itching to adopt again so I'm going to live through you until it's our turn again!
