I'm doing really well, no baking, no cakes, no cookies, no anything. HEY are you okay?
I know you just fell out of your chair! hahaha Super hard to believe I know, trust me. Biggest thing, I'm okay with it. I miss baking and my husband is not thrilled but I really am not missing it. I think secretly I'm afraid that if I eat something decadent I might not be able to stop!
I did however want something last week but it wasn't a desire for cake really. So I found a few recipes and tweaked them to suit me and what I had in the house. I'm trying to be super frugal as well, and no unscheduled store trips.
This is what I came up with. A great raw snack. This one does not include dates or nuts, so if you weren't a fan of the raw cookies, you might like these.
Chocolate PB Oatmeal bites
1 cup old fashioned oats, raw
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa (I used Hershey's)
1/4 cup coconut shreds
1/2 cup peanutbutter (I used WOWbutter)
1/4 cup raw honey
Mix the dry together, mix the honey and PB in a separate bowl. Now combine the two.
This is very hard, you can stir, you need to sort of mash and knead it together.
Take small amounts, about a teaspoon maybe two and knead in your hand, roll into a ball.
Place on a plate and cover, store in the fridge.
