Apricot Crunchies

Apricot crunchies are such an amazing recipe that reminds me so much of the original recipe. I used to love these oaty squares, hardly knowing how much butter and sugar were in them. So I wanted to make these since forever and I am so happy I did, these past weeks has been a teeny bit tough. These bars are lifesavers!

As you may have read in my previous post, I haven’t gotten around to creating very much recipes this summer. I am a bit bummed because fist of all I neeed a creative outlet and secondly summer is over in a months time and then it’s back to fall recipes. I love fall, don’t get me wrong but I am kind of sick of winter for that matter. I am dreading the copious amount of rain that is waiting for me in a couple of months. BUT rest is good, change is good, it makes you get a new perspective on what you really need in LIFE. And what you should be prioritizing.

First off being a mother and having other hobbies is hard. Having a full-time job and adding other hobbies on top of that kind of makes it hard to balance it all out. Being creative and inspired is a constant state of mind and getting delayed with other duties that take rank can take a strain, but hey, that’s what hobbies are for right? They are there to distract you and give you that creative outlet when needed.

So the end of August I intend to start creating more recipes for you, and for myself. My mother is visiting this week and then we’re heading off to Geneva to visit my sister and her new baby. Baby nr 3 to be exact. I told my mom every time we go to visit she has another baby. So time flies and your family expands, it feels so quick and slow all at the same time.

Anyhow, life, cookies and family is sometimes a sticky business. But that’s the wonder of life right! Getting back to these crunchies though, they are super chewy and who doesn’t love a chewy cookie.
