After a recent move I have been finishing up some tasks, I wanted to post before going to bed or else i would have to do a double-day tomorrow – not sure how I feel about that yet. This evening we made it to the store by 8pm… thrilling to be shopping at Wegman’s for your saturday night activity. My husband made Mahi-Mahi with lemon juice and sage with a side of potato hash and a simple salad (home-made mustard vinaigrette a top).
I followed with an energy ball creation – I have been seeing many posts for these little treats. I thought I would give it a try – I was pleasantly delighted with the end product. I threw some things together, bare with me while I perfect the exact amounts to share with you – all I have right now are approximates. Recipe below —
Raw Sugar Cookie Dough Bites
1 heaping cup of dates
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat unsweetened coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp flax seeds
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
*depending on the consistency you can add more dates if your mixture is not sticking together enough or some coconut oil and honey. After blending all ingredients in a food processor roll dough into mini balls and place in the refrigerator until they move from a soft texture to a firmer one. When you bite into these treats you will swear you are eating raw sugar cookie dough!
Seriously is time for bed, hopefully. I will dream about:
peace. love. paleo.
