Ginger Moalsses Cookie Dough Bites

I am SUPER EXCITED about this recipe!

Did you eat peanut butter balls for the holidays as a child too??? Gone are the days of kraft peanut butter and icing sugar so here is my healthy adult version inspired by @emily.likes.food but with my own twist! 

Recipe

Ingredients
1 1/3 cup almond butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup 🍁
1 heaping TBSP organic blackstrap molasses
2 tsp freshly grated ginger root or 1 tsp ground/dry
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 medjool dates, cut into small pieces

Method

In a bowl, combine all ingredients except dates, until everything is well mixed.

Roll into balls with about 1 Tbsp mixture. Add more flour if its too wet.

Press a piece of date into the centre. Roll again.

Refrigerate & Enjoy!

Makes 20-24 balls.

Chewy Chocolate MACAroons {Grain Free, Dairy Free, Vegan}

Ever wonder what to do with an overload of ripe bananas, and looking to expand your recipe repertoire beyond banana bread? This recipe is one of the most easy and quick desserts I make, and at no sacrifice to the taste. When they first come out of the oven, they are absolutely perfect. So warm and chewy and the chocolate chips literally melt in your mouth. I really love the size of this delicious treat, it is just enough…. and they somehow remind me of 2 bite brownies in a way.. ha! The best thing about this recipe, is that everyone always loves them!

Ingredients

4 ripe bananas, mashed

3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

½ cup raw cacao powder

½ cup dark chocolate, chopped or dairy free chocolate chips

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 tsp maca, optional ** Traditionally, maca has always been  used cooked – which enhances the health benefits and makes it easier on the body to digest. Read more about raw or roasted maca…

Instructions

1) In a large bowl, mash bananas by hand with a fork, or use a food processor or blender to speed up the process.

2) Add in all remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.

3) Scoop mixture into balls and place on baking sheet approx 1 inch apart. I like to use a medium size trigger ice cream scoop to get the perfect shape every time.

4) Bake at 350ºF for 10 – 15 minutes.

5) Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack. Enjoy!
