lovely Sundays…

It’s Sunday, one of my favourite days of the week, and today has been absolutely perfect. The sun is shining, it’s a lovely 20c outside, and I’ve been busy puttering away on some of my most adored activities… like:

  • Trips to markets to buy whole, real foods for the week.
  • Enjoying cups of pumpkin chai tea from David’s Tea.
  • Responding to emails from lovely friends.
  • Making kale chips according to the lovely FineTunePilates.
  • Cooking rice, beans and lentils, and roasting veggies for yummy lunches.
  • Making almond butter chews!! The happy, healthy sweet tooth mission continues!

Almond Butter Chews (adapted from Shape Magazine)

  • 1/4 c. chunky all-natural almond butter
  • 3 Tbsp. organic brown rice syrup OR raw honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. shredded coconut (optional)
  • 1 c. puffed rice cereal
  • 1 Tbsp. cacao nibs, chopped chocolate, chopped walnuts, or anything with a crunch (i used Enjoy Life’s Crunchy Flax cereal) – perfect!

Line a plate with parchment paper. Stir together almond butter, brown rice syrup/ honey, vanilla and cocoa powder. Microwave on high for 35-45 seconds. Stir; immediately add rice puffs, coconut and cacao nibs/ your crunchy bits. Stir until fully mixed.

Wet hands thoroughly and shape the mixture into golf ball-sized spheres. Press mixture together firmly. Place the balls onto plate and freeze for five minutes. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 7 balls.

Happy Sunday, loverlies!
