No Bake Coconut Cranberry Seed Bar

Finally, I’ve discovered an awesome a no-bake bar recipe for you. And I have to warn you – these Coconut Cranberry Seed Bars are pretty addictive!

I’ve made these no-bake bars a couple of times, usually with oats, nuts & seeds. For this recipe, I made it with grain and nut free, so it can be enjoyed by everyone. As it’s that time of the year, I thought the addition of white from coconut flakes and red from dried cranberries would give it a festive feel. The finished product didn’t turn out as I earlier envisioned. In fact, it was even better with the specks of white sesame against the green pumpkin seeds and red dried cranberries. Perfect! And the fragrant coconut flakes just made me wanting to go back for more, over and over until I have to tell myself to stop. A couple of times :D Continue Reading →

Nasi Daging Kedah & Air Asam Tomato

With Malaysian Food Fest blog event, I’m really enjoying the new knowledge about the cuisine from each different Malaysian state.

Even though Kedah is neighbouring state to my hometown Penang, I hardly travel to Kedah except going to Langkawi Island. I don’t think I’m very good neighbour, huh? Continue Reading →
