I present to you a healthy, delicious breakfast option that just happens to taste like cookie dough. OH YEAH.
A while back I shared my recipe for Maple Energy Bites. Now it’s time to share the cookie dough version. It’s very simple. Throw ingredients in a high-powered blender. Form into bars or balls. Stash in the fridge. Eat.
You can use any kind of nut here, really, or a combination of nuts, but cashews will be the closest to cookie dough. They have that natural buttery taste. The dates add sweetness and also act as a binding agent. I add cinnamon, but you can sprinkle in whatever flavors you want and make it more like a spice cookie.
I usually eat two or three for breakfast. They are great before a work-out. They also will keep for upward of two weeks in a sealed container in the fridge.
Healthy cookie dough. This is totally a thing.
I’m hosting my friend Sara Dobie Bauer on my blog today. She just released her short story “Forever Dead” on Amazon. Read on to find out more!
- What’s the summary of “Forever Dead?”
Even centuries didn’t prepare Dario for Zach Mede and a love that took his vampire heart by storm. But loving a mortal holds dangers of its own. A mortal can be murdered … and murderers are everywhere.
- What’s the story behind this story?
I’ve loved reading about vampires since Interview with the Vampire in sixth grade. BBC Sherlock fan fiction got me into gay erotica. (If you don’t know, don’t ask. It’s addicting.) I woke one morning with an image: what if a vampire attack turned into a furniture-breaking sex romp and eventually … love?
I’m also terrified of losing the man I love, my husband Jake. FOREVER DEAD forces you to deal with this question: What would you do differently if you knew the person you loved was about to die?Read More
