As you all know, I am obsessed with the bulk bins at any grocery store. Buying in bulk reduced unnecessary packaging, ensures that you pay for what you get, saves resources, and gives you the choice of buying as little or as much as you want! Here is a quick peak of the items in my pantry that I buy in bulk:   Oatmeal, Granola (this is my new local Milk & Honey Granola), and Rice...

I settled on a recipe that was rather simple and included loads of healthy ingredients – everything from whole wheat flour and cracked wheat to molasses and rolled oats!
