Homemade Coffee Exfoliant & Coconut Oil Moisturizer Beauty Products

I don’t actually remember the when the lightbulb moment hit to mix my used coffee grounds with my favorite facial cleanser as my daily exfoliant, but since I’ve been using it my skin feels softer and I believe my pores are less noticeable.

The idea for the coconut oil moisturizer came shortly thereafter. It’s a mix of coconut oil, my favorite moisturizer (to keep the oil from solidifying too much) and some cinnamon and orange essential oils for a lovely and lingering Christmasy fragrance.

No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles Candy

No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles also are perfect for gift giving. Think Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in particular.

And don’t forget to get the kids busy in the kitchen with you when you’re making these. Since these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles are basically a “dump” recipe, the kiddos will have a whole lot of fun dumping and mixing all the ingredients!

Cocoa Coconut Banana Bread

If you’d like to up the chocolate ante of this bread (nice, but certainly not necessary), feel free to add some semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter before baking. And, as I’m always prone to do (but didn’t do this time), tossing in some chopped toasted nuts is never a bad thing in my book. But, if you’re giving it as a gift, sometimes the simpler the better.
