Bowls

Cookie Sheet

 

Parchment Paper 

(I absolutely love that these are precut!)

 

 

Air tight container

 

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 ¼ cups Almond Butter (smooth and non-salted works best)
  • ⅓ cup Honey
  • 4 scoops Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder
  • 1 cup Gluten Free Oats
  • ¼ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (easily swapped for Cinnamon)

 

Instructions

  1.  Measure almond butter & honey into the microwave safe bowl. Microwave for approximately 30-45 seconds.  This just makes the ingredients smoother and easier to stir. Mix together.
  2. Next combine oats, chocolate protein powder and pie spice in a larger mixing bowl. Once the dry ingredients are combined, then stir in almond butter/honey mixture.  Mix thoroughly.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to evenly form protein balls and place on the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Pop in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!

 

Store remaining in an airtight container.  I prefer to freeze them and then allow to thaw for a few minutes when I’m ready to eat them.

 

I will say this is one recipe that all three of my girls give a thumbs-up! Paisley even asked for two!

One of my absolute favorite ways to help when someone is in need is to bring them a meal.  Food can be so healing not only for the body but for the soul.  When the world feels like it is crashing down, the last thing anyone wants to

think about is making dinner.  From surgery to a

major illness to the blessing of a new baby, getting food on the table is just plain hard.  

When our lives caved in five years ago due to Justin’s ruptured appendix, I experienced the grace and generosity of our community.  Friends, family and mamas I did not even know (they had heard from others what had happened to us) began to bring us food.  Mostly homemade, some store bought and all delivered with such kindness that our lives were literally sustained by the love  of others. 

When my third little lady was born in 2016, we again were blessed with beautiful meals ranging from baked pasta to chicken enchiladas. One of my favorites was from a dear friend who brought over “breakfast for dinner!” What a delicious idea!  My kids especially loved it.

Meals have become my mission in bringing a little kindness to someone else in need.  It is something I can do, even with three little kiddos underneath my feet.  Over the years, I have tried to pay it forward because I know first hand what a difference a meal can make.  Partnered with an easy salad and some yummy chocolate chip cookies (those are our favorites!) it can make for a delicious dinner.  I usually double my recipes and feed my fam too. 

One of my favorite recipes that feeds a crowd is Taco Soup.  Please check out my version of this  yummy meal.
