So in my past life I used to bake.Before the blog and before ya'll followed along on Instagram, and before I figured out I could write about health and happiness and someone would listen, I used to bake through my obsession with health and wellness ...
I called it Skinny Sammy's. I used to make vegan gluten free raw balls, brownies, muffins, even cakes. I was making so much that I actually started to sell some of them on Instagram and at local health food stores.
I love baking and trying out new recipes with tons of healthy ingredients. I love control (kinda a control freak... which may come as no surprise) and I love knowing whats inside what I eat.
I'm lucky now to have done my research and found tons of healthy products and local brands who make healthy eating easier.. like one of my faves Agnosante who deliver ready made healthy meals. However, I still love to play around in the kitchen every now and then...
Since Im home with my concussion, doing a bit of research on brain food, but trying to stay away from screens as was suggested.... I was told I can bake. Well guess who will have tons of fun healthy recipes for you up here. Moi!
Here is a recipe I made this morning. Tons of fibre as I added in extra fibre from Renew Life and tons of protein. Try them for yourself!
Vegan Gluten Free Raw Balls
What you'll need
Flaxseed (about a 1/4 cup)
Renew Life Fibre (two scoops)
Organic Nut Butter .. I used about a scoop of peanut but you can add more or a different flavour if you want! (make sure nothing else is in your peanut butter besides peanuts... no sugar no salt!)
Unsweetened Coconut shreds (1/4 cup)
Almonds (1/4 cup)
Dates (about a cup)
You pretty much just add everything into a food processor and blend together. Be careful how much of what you add in... as in don't break the machine and add all the almonds at once.
Slowly mix everything together. It should make a consistent thick mix. Your almonds and dates don't have to be completely blended. In fact I find it taste better if they are ;)
I then made them into little balls and rolled them in more unsweetened coconut shreds.
Put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes and voila.
They are so yummy!
