I've got a lot to be happy about today! The weather is stunning, I've got an amazing recipe to share with you, my new batch of coconut oil chocolates turned out fantastic, and I
So, let me start with the contest! I entered Bitt's chia contest and won a 2lb bag of Chia Seeds Direct chia seeds. I'm so stoked and it was perfect timing as I just ran out of these "little bladders." Thanks Bitt for the giveaway:)
Last night the hubby was thinking that maybe he wasn't getting enough protein ( I know, I know). He eats what I make so lots of veggies, seeds, nuts, healthy oils, quinoa etc! I know that he eats enough because I make sure we eat a lot of foods that contain protein. Plus he takes Vega everyday. But to tame his worries I decided to make an uncooked protein cookie. I took inspiration from Ani Phyo’s Oatmeal Raisin recipe. I had some cooking oats so I used to food processor to grind them into a flour-like consistency.
Then I blended in the dates with a little bit of water. Next I added the almond butter and vanilla. Its starting to come together!
The next ingredients were the raisins and cinnamon. As my food processor is really small and it was starting to make angry sounds, I decided it was time to use some elbow grease to mix in the remaining ingredients.
The final touch was the Vega . We had the berry flavor which didn't exactly compliment the other flavors in the cookie but we actually really liked the final product...yumm!
Here's my very easy recipe
1 Cup Oats ( I used regular cooking oats)
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
1/2 Cup Dates
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Raisins
1/2 Scoop Vega Sport (or your favorite protein)
Water as needed
Process the oats in a food processor until you get a flour-like consistency. Add the almond butter and dates. Then combine the remaining ingredients. Add water if the mixture is too dry.
I then placed them on wax paper and placed them in the freezer. I froze mine overnight and then placed them in an airtight container in the fridge. You can dehydrate as well if you wish.
Hope you have a great Friday night and the rest of the weekend:)
