OOEY GOOEY GOODNESS

I got this delectable recipe from a blog by Rachel Schultz.

Serves: 5-6
Ingredients
16 ounces chickpeas
2 teaspoons vanilla
¼ cup almond or peanut butter
1 egg
¼ cup oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
⅛ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup chocolate chips
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour chickpeas and vanilla into blender or food processor.
Pulse for a few seconds most peas are broken up. Add almond butter and egg and pulse for a few more seconds.
Transfer to bowl and combine with oats, baking soda, baking poweder, salt, and brown sugar. At first, mixture may seem very thick, but it loosens quickly while stirring.
Fold in chocolate chips and transfer to a 9×9 baking dish. Baking for 45-55 minutes. Allow to cool thoroughly and serve.

Enjoy trying not to devour these in one sitting!

Breakfast obsession

Saturday morning has arrived!

My morning routine thus far has consisted of a walk with tanner.

He was happy by the end of it, I’m sure you can tell 😊

Then came my favourite meal.. Breakfast time!! I’ve come to realize the reality of my obsession with breakfast… I know a lot of people have it as their favourite meal but I honestly think I could live off breakfast everyday every meal! It may have to do with the high carb contents of my breakfasts, but healthy complex carbs ofcourse! That’s what powers me through my days.

The combination of peanut butter and pumpkin might sound a little strange but I thought I would give it a try this morning, and I’m so glad I did!

I put 1/3 cup pumpkin purée, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, a little
Almond milk, stevia into a blender and blend until smooth.
Then in a bowl I combined 1/3 cup of quick oats with 1/3 cup of wheat puffs.
I poured the blend over the oats and puffs and topped with some nuts and voila!

They make me happy and taste delicious 😍

This will give me the energy I need for my workout later on ( I’ll keep you updated on that!)

On a side note, I also tried making pumpkin spice and cinnamon roasted chickpeas yesterday! I recommend it, it’s very simple!

Just pop these suckers on a baking sheet in an oven at 375 for 30 minutes after sprinkling them with cinnamon and pumpkin spice 🙂

Have you noticed I’ve been pumpkin cray cray lately?
Can you blame me though?

Happy eatin’!
