Tosca You Are My Hero... Another Eat Clean Winner!

I have jumped into baking some new stuff this weekend. I started with a Sweet Potato Oat Bar from Tosca Reno's new The Eat Clean Diet Recharged. I was so excited to win this book from The Fitness Freak's Blog, I have to make this recipe first. First order of the day was baking the sweet potatoes in the oven early in the am, I was so tempted to just eat them but I held off and made the recipe. This recipe has whole oats, fresh ground flax seeds, slivered almonds, walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut oil (which I used instead of coconut butter, research said that it would work the same way) I had bought some goji berries and I forgot to use them too.
I have been searching for something to make my kids for a quick breakfast or a snack for school. I also want something that I can pack in my bag when I head out for the gym or another activity in which I might get hungry! It is packed full of nutrients, smells great and tastes to good. Zachary said it tasted good and he says he doesn't like sweet potatoes!! Thumbs up from Ariana! She liked it too!
So thanks again Tosca for such a delicious recipe, I haven't met one of her recipes that hasn't knocked my socks off! This one is no different!
For all you Tosca fans out there. What's your favorite Eat Clean recipe?

I'm so glad you're enjoying the book and making full use of it : ) One of my favorite Clean Eating recipes is:

I don't get to eat them anymore but I sure used to like them! I'm trying some of the Raw recipes in the new book to make my new favorite :o)

So we have a vote from 2 out of 3 of your children. What did Mr. Macaroni & Cheese think?
I could not open Nicole's link so do not know what that recipe is yet. The one that I love best, so far, is the soup made from "Soup or Sauce", page 123, Tosca Reno's Eat Clean cookbook. Thank you Carrie for my birthday present. Oh my goodness that was good. I never even put any in my freezer...ate it all! :-)

Mr Macaroni and cheese didn't have anything nice to say, he ate the smallest crumb and I did not fight him. I just save that yummy stuff for myself!!!

If he only knew that his mac and cheese is made with sweet potato and yogurt half the time! ha!
