It’s Would You Read It Wednesday and it’s March, people! How awesome is that?
I know winter isn’t technically over in our neck of the woods until mid-April (if we’re lucky!) but there’s something so light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel promising about March! This year in particular, the light is changing, the sun feels warmer than usual for this time, and the cardinals are singing already! Let’s just put global warming right out of our heads, shall we? and just think chocolate.
Because I think we should celebrate these early spring-like days with Something Chocolate! (Not that I need an excuse for chocolate…) And just wait til you see what I have for today. I am not kidding. It is Actual Health Food. Seriously. Even you are going to like this one, Julie R-Z of the I-don’t-eat-chocolate-for-breakfast persuasion!
Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars!
See that? The first listed ingredient is oatmeal! Breakfast food and health food! Plus there are dried cranberries in the recipe, and those of you who are familiar with dried cranberries know that they
are candy count as a fruit 🙂 Plus, the words “no-bake” appear in the title, and that means easier prep and less time until BREAKFAST! 🙂
I hope you will all enjoy this healthful and delicious treat. You know I’m always looking out for you, doing my best to make sure you are supplied with chocolate in the most nutritious way possible 🙂
Today’s pitch comes to us from Stacia who is a curriculum and content writer for an early education non-profit. She has been published in NAEYC’s Teaching Young Children and Museum Magazine. Stacia lives in Washington, DC with her husband and adorable pup, Ollie.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: My Mama Runs: Mia And The Marathon

The Pitch: Mia’s mama loves to run and Mia loves to cheer her on! While Mama is getting ready for her longest race ever, find out what Mia does to get ready too! Will Mia’s cheering be enough to help Mama cross the finish line?
