There used to be a time when April fool’s Day meant pranks galore! From disabling the mouse on a co-workers computer; to darkening the screen brightness so nothing seemed to happen when a computer was turned on and off; to hiding remote controlled fart machines in offices and setting them off during meetings; to turning up the volume on a radio and unplugging the headphones so when the radio was turned on it literally brought down the ceiling; to stuffing packing eggs in a co-workers overhead cabinet and asking them to fetch something from there…April Fool’s Day was a day of laughs and watching
my one’s back!
These past few years, however, have been different…from being the prankster, I have become the prankee, almost forgetting it’s April Fools Day till I run across “I-feel-so-good-I-cry” videos like this one on “pranking it forward”…
I guess I will stick to those pranks I do best these days, and that’s sneaking healthy ingredients into recipes I know my daughter will love-not just on April 1st! These Breakfast Biscotti (minus the heavy 2-chocolate coating) are one such example!
With oats, eggs, flax meal and coconut oil making up the biscotti base, these biscotti are almost like a bowl of oatmeal!
This past week, I made these for my daughter and sent the leftovers to my Leftovers Club partner Marissa who blogs over @ Pinch & Swirl If you haven’t checked out her space yet, please head on over -AFTER- you grab yourself a snack and towel to sop up any resulting drool! The Leftovers Club is for bloggers who not only like to ogle at other bloggers’ food, but love to get a taste too!
