Cheater Cheesecake Recipe

I love this recipe because it is so easy!  It is a great go-to dessert recipe when I need something quick to serve guests or take to a potluck.  I call it "cheater cheesecake" because it is way easier and much quicker to make than a real cheesecake - it has minimal ingredients and there is no baking involved!  I usually prepare the filling and put it in a store-bought prepared graham cracker pie crust.  I have also made my own graham cracker crust, but find it more convenient to just use the graham cracker pie shells pre-made.  You can usually find them in the baking goods isle at the grocery store.  I have often topped it with a can of cherry pie filling, but tonight I made it with homemade blueberry pie filling.  I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Cheater Cheesecake Recipe

1 - 8 oz tub Cool Whip, thawed
1 - 8 oz bar of cream cheese, softened
1 - prepared graham cracker crust
Pie filling of your choice

In mixing bowl, place thawed cool whip and softened cream cheese and combine with a mixer until well blended and creamy.  Place cheesecake mixture into the graham cracker crust and top with pie filling of your choice.  Refrigerate and serve when ready.  It is best when well chilled.

Yummy Oat-Free Granola Recipe

I recently discovered that I am allergic to oats.  That was disappointing!  One of the foods I have missed being able to have the most is granola.  I figured that there had to be some way to make granola without oats, which led to an internet search for recipes.  There are several different kinds of oatless granola recipes floating around out there, but this one over at PopSugar gave me some ideas on how I could make my own.  I was able to adapt this recipe using ingredients I already had on hand in my pantry.  I wasn't sure I believed it could work, but the end result met with rave reviews in our home.  It goes great just plain or in milk, and it is an easy take-along snack.  This is definitely going to be a staple item around here!

Oat-Free Granola

2 Cups Walnuts
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Jam or Fruit Preserves
1 Cup Various Seeds/Nuts/Fruits (I used flax seeds, sliced almonds, and dried cranberries)

In  food processor, process walnuts for a few seconds - enough to chop into small pieces.  Combine ground walnuts, honey, coconut oil, and jam/fruit preserves.  Stir until evenly and well combined.  Mix in seeds/nuts/fruits.  Spread mixture evenly onto a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Stir mixture 2-3 times while baking.  Granola should have a light golden brown color when done.  Let cool and store in a covered container or ziploc baggie.
