Create Your Own Snacks!

on January 21, 2017

I am really having fun making my own Power Bites.  I know exactly what’s in them and it’s fun to play.  Today’s experiment may sound a little crazy.  I looked to see what I had on hand and just went for it!

  • 1 can organic pumpkin
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (yes garbanzo beans, great source of fiber….I had a choice between these, black beans, or peanut butter.  I’ve already done peanut butter, black beans are next on the list! ;))
  • 1/4 cup organic honey (more if you like it sweeter)
  • a couple handfuls of walnuts (one for the blender, and one chopped)
  • 3 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • handful of dark chocolate chips (that’s all I had)
  • 2 tablespoons each of chia seeds, hemp seeds, and ground flax
  • 4 drops cinnamon essential oil
  • 2 drops nutmeg essential essential oil
  • 1 packet of vanilla Plant Protein
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • approximately 1/4 tsp. of sea salt

Combine coconut oil, garbanzo beans, pumpkin, honey, 1 handful of the walnuts, and salt in Vitamix (it worked better than my NutriBullet).  Cream together then scrap into a bowl…  Then add the rest of the ingredients.  Roll into balls (whatever size you like) and freeze for approx. 1 hour.  Put some in an airtight container in the fridge and store the rest in the freezer.  This made about 3 1/2 dozen balls!

Make your own, have fun…play with it.
