Vanilla Honey Fruit Salad & Brownie Bark Chips

Happy 4th of July!!!! I hope you are enjoying a nice day off, relaxing, and spending time with family and friends (and of course, cooking up a storm)!

This month for Healthy Food Friday with American Express we are thinking about vacations and the powers of them. Generally when I think of vacation I think of some place exotic with unique foods and experiences. We’ll get there this month, I promise! But, today, seeing as it’s the 4th and we are celebrating America, I am not thinking about an exotic vacation, but my most recent vacation to Florida to celebrate my nanny’s (grandma) 91st birthday. We had the best time, from great meals out and relaxation, to just quality family time with the heart of my family; a perfect week. 

A staple in my baking and in my pantry is raw local honey. It is loaded with nutrients! Unlike store bought honey, raw honey is not processed or heated therefore keeps all of it’s nutrients while being delicious. WIN-WIN!


And of course, I can’t help but continue to dream of that heavenly Brownie Brittle that nanny has stocked in her pantry. I thought… brownies as chips? Perfect for a fruit salad. Actually, more than perfect; hands-down nothing better!
