Ultimate Energy Bites.

Hello, and happy almost-Friday! I finished my semester exams today and wanted to celebrate by making these healthy, no-bake, uber-delicious energy bites. They only really require two materials: a food processor and a spoon. I like to make a nice sized batch of these to last for the next week or two. They are the perfect thing to grab for that 4 o’-clock crash.

Ingredients:

-handful of medjool dates (pitted)

-scoop of prefered protein powder. i like PerfectFit or Hemp protein 

-a handful or two of almonds and walnuts

-tbs of flax and chia seed 

-2 tbs coconut oil

-1-2 tbs cacao powder

-if you blend and consistency isn’t able to form, add more dates 

Use your hands to press down and roll these into balls. If you want to coat them in seeds and have them be a bit crunch just roll the ball you made in a seed mix with hemp, chia, and flax. Place balls into a bowl and store in the fridge. Enjoy!

Until next time,

Claire

Ezekiel tortilla chips

I love tortilla chips but sadly they are not the healthiest thing for you. The Ezekiel brand contains very clean ingredients that are easily accessible. You can make a big batch for the week or just a single serving which I am going to show the recipe for. Image

Recipe: (one-two people serving)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F 
  2. On a pan that is covered with tin foil, drizzle 1-2 tbs of olive oil
  3. Cut or break chip size pieces of one Ezekiel tortilla
  4. Coat each one in olive oil
  5. Roast in oven for about eight to ten minutes or until is is golden and crispy
