Lavender season is in full swing. The farmers Market in Salt lake's pioneer park is going really well. This years crop should be ready to harvest in 2-3 weeks. Anyone interested in visiting the farm, just let me know and I'll have a job waiting for you. This recipe is a great summer time treat. They store well, last a long time, and are a bit more healthy than your regular candy bar. They would be great for your next extended car ride. Kids love em... enjoy.

Bon Appetite, Peggy


3 cups quick oats
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. dried Lavender

Preheat oven to 350. Combine oats, coconut and flour in a large bowl. In a sauce pan bring to a boil, butter, honey, brown sugar and lavender. (if you have the time you could let the lavender steep for 10- 15 minutes,) Pour over dry ingredients and mix well with a spoon. Drop by spoonful into muffin tins. (I used mini muffins tins, but regular tins will work well too) Bake 7-8 minutes for the mini, or 12- 15 for the regular size until just golden being carful not to over bake. Cool in tins for 15 minutes before removing.
