My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

No Bake Energy Bites

These are extremely easy to prepare - no cooking or baking involved! Just measure out the ingredients, stir to combine, then roll into balls. It's that easy!
{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Super Easy! / Yields: 2 dozen }

1/2 cup Arbonne protein powder (I used chocolate, but vanilla works too!)
2 Tbsp Arbonne Fiber Boost
1 cup dry organic old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup coconut flakes, toasted
3/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1. Measure out ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until all ingredients are combined. (You may need to add more honey and/or almond butter, depending on consistency. You want them all the ingredients to stick together.) Place "dough" in refrigerator and let chill for about 30 mins (this should make dough easier to form into balls). 
2. Use 1" ice cream scoop (or spoon) to measure out 1" balls. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
