I am so happy this is over. My obsessive personality can fixate on something other than studying and creating training schedules for fictitious over weight males (that is who I seemed to also get as my case study). I have been training with my sisters which has been a lot of fun.
SO now all I need to do is figure out what I'm going to do with this certification. But that's down the road. Tonight I'm going to take a bath and just relax. I did have a great afternoon with my girls as well - mani's, pedis and cookies...
Chocolate Protein Love Bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Keywords: raw dessert side vegan
Ingredients (24 love bites)
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup protein powder
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 5 medjool dates pitted and chopped roughly
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/3 cup hemp hearts
- 1/3 cup small chocolate chips
- 4-5 tablespoons maple syrup
In a food processor, process oatmeal into a flour like consistency. Add all remaining ingredients except maple syrup. While processor is still mixing add maple syrup adding as much as needed until mixture forms a ball. Remove mixture from food processor and roll into small balls - slightly smaller than a golf ball. You can choose to leave the dough as a ball, or flatten in the palm of your hand and shape into hearts. Put hearts or balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place in freezer. Once the dough has set, store in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge.
