Chocolate Peanut Butter Chickpea Bites (Yes, I know how that sounds.)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chickpea Bites | Gluten free, dairy free, nightshade free

Chocolate, peanut butter, and chickpeas (what?!?!) come together in this deliciously healthy toddler-friendly treat. Even the pickiest of eaters will agree, these chocolate peanut butter chickpea bites are the bomb diggity. We are BIG fans of chickpea bites in this house. It’s something The Babe asks for on an hourly basis. And if we don’t have any, she immediately wants to grab the step ladder and an apron so that she can help me make them. There’s only one problem. The Babe thinks it’s totally acceptable to eat all of the chocolate chips out of the chocolate chip chickpea bites without actually eating the chickpea bite. Being the smart mama...

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Bites

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Bites | Dairy Free, Nightshade Free, Gluten Free

I’m officially on the energy bite bandwagon and have these chocolate chip chickpea bites to thank for that. I’ve been having a hard time figuring out what I can eat for a quick dairy free, gluten free, and nightshade free snack that isn’t just piling more fruit and vegetables in my mouth. At first glance, that probably doesn’t sound like such a big deal. But the truth is, when you’re full on HANGRY and needsomethingimmediatelyoryouwilldie, it’s borderline impossible. And that’t pretty much how I’ve been feeling all day every day. I’ve tried my hand at a few of these newfangled energy bite recipes in the past but have never been 100% sold on the results....

6 Delicious Mini Muffins You Should Make Right Now

(If you can call us that.) 1: Baked French Toast Muffins from Averie Cooks We love french toast in our house. The Hubster is the resident french toast maker; whipping up delightful batch after delightful batch, while I tend to burn it or undercook it. But THESE baked french toast muffins take all the guess work out and...

Sun Butter Bars

Sun Butter Bars

Day 6 of The August Break is all about diagonals. Which is great, considering I’ve been wanting to post about these bad boys for a solid week now. I made these for the August session of the Propelle Mastermind. They were such a huge hit with the ladies, that I only got to bring home a single solitary bar. That seriously never happens!

Even play around with ingredients like chocolate chips, whole peanuts, sunflower seeds, and the like. Which is a bit ironic considering I have always...
