Raw Breakfast Cookie

Hey everyone! How's your Friday the 13th going today? I hope it's going fine. I know that mines has been pretty good so far, despite the fact that this day is supposed to be a bad day. It did rain in the morning, but then again, it rained all this week. Yesterday, it was pouring rain. Today, there was only a little. It stopped in the afternoon. My world politics class is doing a model UN (United Nations). Today's Model UN meeting went really well. Also today, I performed in a talent show. I sang Lo mejor de mi vida eres tú. People complimented me but I was so nervous while I was singing it acapella. Haha. I guess people do have to compliment performers, even if performers are bad. you don't want to make them feel bad. but, yea. I literally signed up last minute to perform. I wanted to be impulsive for once.
Anyway, back to the raw breakfast cookie. This breakfast cookie is actually pretty good, in my opinion. It will fill you up and it's delicious and healthy. I was hesitant to eat raw oats at first but it actually tastes good and the texture is good too. The idea came from this blog and I adjusted it to suit my tastes. Here's the recipe and I hope you enjoy it.


  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder or cocoa powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 packet splenda
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon milk (any kind)
  • and anything you would like to add to your cookie (chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, etc.)
  1. Mix together the oats, powder, splenda and ground cinnamon. 
  2. Combine together with the peanut butter. 
  3. Add in the milk until well combined. 
  4. Then, you can add the add ins you want. 
  5. Put it on a small plate and flatten it. 
  6. Refrigerate overnight. 
  7. Enjoy.

Clif Kids Z Bar Chocolate Brownie and Chocolate Chip Review

 Hey everyone. Today, I've decided to review the Cliff Kids Z Bars. We bought them at Costco the past weekend. The Chocolate Brownie and the Chocolate Chip. Yes. Chocolate. I love chocolate. Anyway, let's see. The left picture is the Chocolate Brownie Flavor while the right side is the Chocolate Chip. They both taste good.
The first time that I tried the Chocolate Brownie was a couple months ago, and I wasn't very fond of the flavor. However, eating it again, it tastes a lot better. It tastes like real brownies with some chocolate chips in them. My favorite. My brother even loves these. As usually, the bars and soft and chewy but they have a great flavor.
Now, for the Chocolate Chip. When my sister first saw it, she said that it looked like someone chewed it up and then threw it up. She says it tastes fine though. However, when I ate it, it tastes almost like the honey graham The only difference is that there's chocolate.
So, now, I have reviewed all the Clif Kids Z Bar flavors that are in the Costco box. My most favorite is the Chocolate Brownie while my least favorite is the Honey Graham.
However, there is one flavor I've eaten before that isn't included in the box. It is the blueberry flavor. The blueberry is my most favorite out of the Clif Kids Z Bar. Yes, although it's not chocolate, it's my favorite. Then again, I do love blueberries too.

So, have you guys ever had bad experiences with granola bars? 
What's your least favorite granola bar so far that you've eaten? 

Mines would have to be the Nutri-grain bar. Those are artificial tasting and are pretty gross. They are also UNHEALTHY.

Cliff Kid Z Bar Honey Graham

Hey hey everyone. As you probably know, it's my Spring Break. Fun. Well, not really. It's just relaxing, getting to stay home all day. It'd be fun to travel and go to Disneyland but I guess that can wait.
Anyway, back to the post. You guys can probably tell I love granola bars. I eat them daily whenever we have them around the house. Wanting to eat more healthy, we got the Cliff Kid Z Bar, the honey graham.
So, how did these bars taste? Well, there was definitely some honey flavor to the bar. It was sweet. It was also pretty chewy and soft too. However, where did the graham part go? I didn't really taste it. The flavor was mainly dominated by fig too. If you're not a fan of figs, then, you probably wouldn't like this bar. I liked how it was chewy, sweet and had a hint of cinnamon, but I wasn't really expecting fig. Overall, it was a decent bar though. Here's a picture:

The nutrition isn't that bad either. 120 calories. Even though the bar is small, it ain't that bad. It's organic. You can look at their website for the nutrition.

So, how do you guys spend spring break?
Do you like granola bars? What's your favorite type?
