I’m not going to front – my chef skills are less than practiced. I meal prep on Sunday’s, always, but I am absolutely a creature of habit. I typically make the same things, all the time.

HOWEVER, this is a “lifestyle” blog, and I really want to give you guys a variety of posts, SO I have come to two conclusions:

  1. I will be testing one new recipe a week, and if it makes the cut, I will share with you.
  2. I will be featuring some LIT people under “Lifestyle” – food, fitness, fashion, you name it! There is so much to be learned from the knowledge of our peers so why not share that?!

Today though, I have for you the recipe for these DELISH (if I do say so myself) macadamia coconut energy bites, which I concocted this weekend. They are so easy – which is key for me, because I lose interest/patience in cooking quite quickly.

Coconut Macadamia Energy Bites:

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups oats

1 cup raw macadamia nuts

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut coconut 

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder

1/4 cup coconut nectar (or agave, maple syrup or honey)

1/4  cup unsweetened almond/soy/cashew/coconut milk

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Half of a pack of sugar-free Jello white chocolate pudding mix

Directions:

  1. Melt coconut oil

  2. Combine coconut oil, coconut nectar (or other syrup of choice) and vanilla

  3. Add all dry ingredients

  4. Add soy/almond/cashew/coconut milk.

  5. Mix together with a spoon and roll into balls. No baking required!

That’s it! I told you – easy as 1,2,3,4,5!

Great for an on the go snack, and sweet enough to satisfy a mid-day sugar craving! Let me know what you think!

Lastly, if you want to submit anything or would like to be featured me, slide in my DM! (By which I mean send me an email: morgan.bell@live.ca) I would LOVE to see what you guys are coming up with!
