No-bake Energy Balls that WORK!!!

energy balls

I whipped these for my hubby to take with him when he golfs 18 holes.  He typically takes some type of a granola bar, 1-2 bananas & water but I wanted to make him something HOMEMADE that he loves.  So yesterday he put them to the test and LOVED them and so did the guys golfing with him.  They take 10 minutes max to whip up and you keep them in the fridge in an air tight glass container.

Ingredients:
1 cup gluten free oats
2/3 cup organic coconut flakes
1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1-2 tbsps chia seeds or sunflower seeds
Small handful raisins, craisins or a few of both
3-4 tbsps Enjoy Life chocolate chips (these are dairy & soy free)
1 tsp vanilla
Dash or 3 of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients, roll into balls & store in an air tight glass container in the fridge.
ENJOY!!!

Pulp Muffins – Stop Wasting the Pulp!

20120415-142727.jpg

This is a great way to use the pulp from your juicing.  So many people tell me they will not juice regularly because they don’t like throwing away all of the pulp.  So if you don’t like the pulp crackers or need a new recipe try these pulp muffins!  The muffins kind of crumbled so I need to continue to work on the recipe but they are tasty either way!

INGREDIENTS:
Pulp from juicing for 2 – any ingredients are fine  (carrots, apple, romaine, cabbage & orange) Prob about 3 cups
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 eggs
2 tbsps apple cider vinegar
Cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut
Raisins
Blueberries
5 dates
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 325.  Whisk 2 eggs in 1 tbsp ACV & toss into bowl with pulp.  Add all other ingredients (chop up the dates into small pieces) & mix to combine.  You can add walnuts or chopped almonds if desired.  Add mixture to greased muffin tins or pie dish (or both).  Bake for 40 minutes at 325.  Cool before taking them out.  Careful they do crumble a bit!
ENJOY
