Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites


When I crave sweets, I look for ways to minimize my sugar consumption while also getting that sweet fix. I recently discovered monk fruit sugar so my coffee and sweets have never been the same. It's a great substitute for regular sugar but it has no impact on your blood sugar and has no carbs. I didn't use monk fruit sugar for this recipe, though, so go out and get it because my next recipe will have it.

I sweetened this recipe with protein powder and raisin. Ooh and chocolate chips! Mini ones. They are so cute. This is a great, dense, cookie consistency kind of snack that you can eat pretty much at any time. I ate some for breakfast the other day-I also like to have these before a workout. The recipe is easy and you can sub the raisins for any dried fruit really.


1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of nut butter (I used peanut butter)
1/2 cup of dairy-free chocolate chips
Sea salt

Put everything in your food processor except the sea salt and chocolate chips. Hand mix in the chocolate chips and form the dough into balls and place in a container that has an airtight lid. Sprinkle with sea salt, cover and store in the fridge.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
