Difficulty: Easy, 2 hours. Makes 8 bars.

This is a fairly basic granola bar recipe but I had to redo it a couple times to ensure I was getting the right portions so it didn’t turn out rock hard.

Base:
-2 cups quick oats
-1 cup rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
-½ cup brown sugar
-½ cup honey
-¼ cup butter or margarine

Apple cinnamon:
-½ cup dried apple chips, finely chopped
-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
-½ teaspoon nutmeg
-½ teaspoon salt
-¼ cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
-½ cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)

Chocolate coconut:
-¾ cup shredded or finely chopped coconut (unsweetened)
-½ cup mini chocolate chips
-¼ cup sunflower seeds
-½ cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a small saucepan, melt the butter/margarine over low heat. Add the brown sugar and honey and continue to cook on low, stirring occasionally, until the brown sugar dissolves (takes about 2 minutes). 

In a bowl, combine the quick oats and rice cereal. Add the rest of the ingredients for the type of granola bar you want to make as listed above. If you’re making the apple cinnamon bars, leave the cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt for later otherwise they’ll just collect at the bottom of the bowl. 

Pour the honey mixture over the contents of the bowl and stir with a spatula or spoon to combine. If you’re adding the spices, do so after adding the honey mixture so it’ll stick. Give it another stir to distribute them.

Grease an 8x8in baking pan and then pack the granola mixture into the pan. It’ll be very crumbly and won’t stick together well. Don’t worry about this, it’ll set later. Bake for 25 minutes. 

Once out of the oven, the granola will still be crumbly while hot. Again, don’t worry. Place the pan in the fridge on a potholder, and let it chill for about an hour or until entirely cooled. Cut the granola into 8 bars. They can be wrapped in wax paper for on-the-go, or just eaten right out of the pan if you’re like me.

They’re chewy, a lil crumbly, but delicious and make for a great quick snack. If you like, use the base and the instructions provided, but throw in whatever other ingredients you like. Dried fruit, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, you name it. Go wild. You can also toast the coconut and nuts in the oven beforehand. I didn’t because I’m lazy.

Coconut oil - an all-round talent
  • nurtures dry skin -> when applying it make sure your skin is a little bit wet (but not the water dripping down kind of wet). The skin absorbs it quicker this way.
  • fights bad skin and acne -> due to it being antiphlogistic (be careful not to overdo it as it can clog your pores)
  • suitable as make up remover
  • prevents and removes stretch marks
  • suitable for mani- and pedicure
  • can be used for a body peeling -> mix it together with either sugar or salt to remove skin scales
  • fights herpes -> apply it with Q-tip on the affected spot
  • can be used as bath supplement
  • soothes skin after shaving
  • regulates acid-base balance and hence counteracts first wrinkles
  • suitable as hair mask
  • supports wound healing ->especially soothing for cuts and scrapes
  • prevents cellulite -> frequent and long-lasting usage is required
  • fights dark circles
  • for full and smoothe eyelashes
  • chapstick substitute for velvety and soft lips
✨Witch Tip: Oil Warmer ✨

So everyone loves a good smoke cleansing or oil diffusion, but smoke can aggravate ya lungs/nose/breathing apparatus and those oil diffuser things are hella expensive (I still haven’t found one for under $25.00 USD)

But I present a cheaper alternative to both of these methods, as well as CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS 

So here’s what ya gonna need: 

1. one of those wax melter base things

This is what it looks like, they have electric ones too but I prefer the tea light style (I like the real flame detail and that I don’t gotta be near an outlet)

I got mine at the dollar tree for literally 1 dollar and it works perfectly 

basically ya put a tea light in the bottom, and it warms up the top which has a bowl shape to put wax chunks-now here’s where the ‘hack’ comes in

those wax chunks? HELLA EXPENSIVE and they smell all gross and artificial and just generally suck (at least in my experience) plus you only get like yankee candle scent options, like, I can’t pick/build an intent for “Tahitian breeze” if idk wtf is in it


so what do you put in the top? COCONUT OIL

A big jar of this stuff is less than $5.00 USD and it took me over a year to go through one jar (and that’s using it for warming in the tea light warmer and for face masks and hair treatments you name it if you can use coconut oil in it I tried it and it still took me a year)-walmart also has an organic version for like $2 more if that’s your thing

the last thing you’re gonna need is ya spices-this is the fun part-I like to match my intent with the associations/properties of whatever spices I’m using (kitchen witches it’s your time to shine) and I literally just use the great value/walmart brand ground spices and make my own blends


so to actually get this thing up and running, all you gotta do is put a little tea light in the bottom, a lil scoop of coconut oil in the basin at the top, and sprinkle your spices in 

VOILA you have a customizable, cheap ass air freshener you can match with intent. I love mine in fall when I fill the thing with cinnamon for strength and protection lol-hope you enjoyed!
