When I was a child, my mom did most of the cooking for our family but it was my dad’s Haitian Oatmeal (Avwan, pronounced Ave-one) that had me running to the table for breakfast. This was his Fall and Winter specialty dish.
I can still remember the intoxicating smell of cinnamon sticks, anise, vanilla and nutmeg dancing through air. This was love in a bowl and each bite filled me with warmth and joy.
Warm notes of nutmeg, vanilla, anise make this the perfect bar for Fall - comfort food for the skin. Organic oats top this bar and for an extra skin loving boost.
Like my early bowls of this hot cereal, this bar may have you reaching for seconds (and thirds!).

Haitian Castor Oil (Lwil Maskriti) is high in vitamin E, minerals, proteins, omega 6, and other beneficial fatty acids including ricinoleic acid which plays a key role in drawing moisture to the skin. Haitian Castor Oil can be used to fight acne and maintain healthy skin and hair. I have yet to meet a Haitian that doesn't have a bottle or two of this cultural staple in their home.
Coconut Milk contains high levels of vitamin C, known to help maintain elasticity and flexibility of the skin. It is also rich in copper, which has been said to help to prevent wrinkles and age spots..
