Little protein bites! They’re so easy to make and they hit the spot when I need a sweet fix. I’ll roll them in whatever sounds interesting… chocolate covered cacao nibs, matcha green tea powder, pecans, roasted coconut flakes and sesame seeds. The base is made from soft medjool dates, organic peanut butter, coconut butter, vanilla and almond extract, honey, garbanzo bean flour and splash of water. Lots of protein and a healthy dose of good fats to keep you going. They’re silky smooth!
8 soft dates
1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
2 tbsp smooth organic peanut butter
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp water (may need more)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1/4 tsp almond extract
*desired toppings for rolling
Warm the coconut butter in a glass bowl set over a small saucepan of simmering water until it’s semi-soft. Remove from the heat, and add to a food processor with the rest the the ingredients. Blend until mixture resembles a smooth paste. Ingredients vary, so add a bit more garbanzo flour or water if necessary. Using your hands, roll the mixture into 12 balls, then roll each one in your desired topping. Coat thoroughly. Place in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to set. Story any leftover truffles in the fridge.
Creamy peanut butter hazelnut chocolate swirled nice cream with double chocolate baked granola, cocoyo, pecans and cacao nibs. Dairy and refined sugar free! Dan and I just moved into our new home so I thought we should celebrate with a super yummy breakfast… it did NOT disappoint! Ohhh man this is the stuff dreams are made of!
Keeping it simple this morning multigrain omega-3 toast with chocolate hazelnut and pb spread, topped with strawberries, cocoa almond granola and hemp seeds + cinnamon spice apple water to go! I love flavoring my water…it’s always been a challenge for me to drink those 8 glasses a day. I found that flavoring water with fruit and spices keeps me interested. I thought it would be fun to embrace the fall season with some traditional flavors… cinnamon sticks a few cloves and allspice or star anise, apple slices or orange peels etc. Sip and refill! The flavor should last for 2 days if you keep it refrigerated!
Breakfast to go! Apple wheels with peanut butter, sprinkled with dried cherries, blueberries, cranberries, chopped dates, rolled oats, shredded coconut, hemp hearts, pecans, almonds and cinnamon! The only thing that could make this better is chocolate! Alas, we have a chocolate chip thief in our house…
