That little something something to satisfy a sweet tooth craving?

Or maybe you’re favorite past time is licking the cookie dough bowl (even when mom says no) and sneaking in that last little bite of dough???

I am one who honestly prefers the chocolate chip cookie DOUGH over the cookie and also one who is now avoiding gluten (because I bloat like a mad woman) and dairy (because my skin breaks out like a teenage girl) and I am ELATED to find a healthier sweet alternative that fits my dietary preferences and well, tastes AMAZING.

MEET:

Cookie Dough Energy Balls

Total Time: 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 13 servings, 1 ball each

WHAT YOU NEED: 
½ cup all-natural almond butter
¼ cup raw honey
½ cup finely chopped raw almonds (I used slivers and they worked great!)
2½ scoops Vegan Vanilla Shakeology (you could use the regular but the taste of the vegan is wayyyyyy better!)
2 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet (or dark chocolate) chocolate chips (I use the ENJOY LIFE brand – found at Target #yourewelcomemoms) 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. More specifically: I found it easiest to mix the dry almonds and Shakeology, then I added the almond butter, mixed well, then added the honey, mixed well again, and stirred in the chocolate chips. 
2. Roll into thirteen balls, about 1-inch in diameter each. (I used the pampered chef small scoop and it actually got 20 balls – so I adjusted the serving size to be 1.5 balls to match the nutritional breakdown below)

Mini Vegetable Egg Cups

I don’t know about you – but I am all about a fast easy healthy breakfast…and anytime I can sneak in a veggie in that first meal is an added bonus!!!

I prepped these over the weekend for a quick post-workout grab. We have an activity most mornings during the week so if I don’t grab a shower post workout its tough to get in – but at the same time – I need to fuel up after I workout so this is the best of both worlds!

I used to always have my Shakeology post workout but I’ve started saving my shakeo for when my kiddos wake up and I make a little extra for them…this cold and flu season is NASTY this year and I want to give them as many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics and probiotics as possible…and this is the easiest and healthiest way!!!!

  • 1 (10-oz) bag baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • Salt (sea salt or Himalayan salt) and ground pepper to taste

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C)

2. Lightly coat a twelve-cup muffin tin with spray

3. Place eggs in a large bowl; whisk to blend. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

4. Add spinach, peppers and onions, mix well.

5. Evenly pour egg mixture into muffin cups

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of cups comes out clean.

Ok – HOLD THE PHONE!

Yes, I LOVE SHAKEOLOGY – that’s no secret! I am still amazed that someone found a way to pack the nutritional value of 6 salads into a glass. To include digestive enzymes, probiotics, protein, antioxidants and nearly every vitamin and mineral your body needs in a convenient meal replacement shake that – GET THIS – tastes AhMAZING! It’s like magic!

But this stuff isn’t just limited to a meal replacement shake – it makes some incredible desserts!!!! And one of my all time favorites is Shakeology Pudding:

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • ¾ cups plain Green Yogurt
  • ¼ – ½ scoop Chocolate (Vegan or Regular) Shakeology
  • 1-2 TBS PB2 or All natural Peanut Butter

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Combine the 3 ingredients into a bowl and stir until blended. If you want to get real crazy you can even toss in a few chocolate chips – but I think its good just the way it is!

This is a sure fire way to satisfy any sweet tooth craving!!! I usually opt for the lower calorie option and do 1 TBS of PB2 whereas my hubby opts for the 2 TBS of all natural PB – but it’s totally up to you! Either way it’s a delicious, high protein, 21-day fix approved (1 ¼ – 1 ½ reds plus a few of your tsps depending on how much PB or PB2 you use!!!)

Black and White No-Bakes

So I made the nutty shakeology no bakes a while ago and thought they were a great alternative to regular cookies. I took them to a family reunion and people were amazed to see that they were all natural “healthy” cookies. So when my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday I quickly responded with the no bake cookies! I’ll admit – my mom got to my house late in the evening and I quickly ate 4 cookies. I couldn’t believe how delicious they were – so much better than mine!!! I thought it was just because my mom made them but nope – she did something differently – she melted the PB and honey first and she did half chocolate and half vanilla shakeo – and oooooooo what a difference!!! I’m not sure if its a good thing yet or bad thing because I cannot stop eating them but I feel obligated to share!

I was even able to return the favor and as my mom prepped for her first marathon this past weekend I asked her what I could provide to help her – and of course she wanted the no bakes!!! I was happy to hear these little bites help provide her energy as she powered through her 26.2 miles! I still don’t think they were as good as my moms…but they did the trick!

Black and White Shakeology No Bakes

(Makes 30-32 servings, 1 Cookie each)

Total Time: 15 min

Prep Time: 10 min

Cooking time: 5 min

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 Scoop Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Shakeology
  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup honey

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  • MELT PEANUT BUTTER AND HONEY IN A MEDIUM SAUCEPAN.
  • AND SHAKEOLOGY  THEN OATS AND MIX WELL WITH A RUBBER SPATULA OR WOODEN SPOON.
  • SCOOP MIXTURE INTO 1-INCH SIZE BALLS (I FOUND THE PAMPERED CHEF SMALL COOKIE SCOOP TO BE A HUGE TIME SAVER HERE).
  • FLATTEN EACH BALL SLIGHTLY SO THAT IT IS SHAPED LIKE A TRADITIONAL COOKIE. AND THAT’S IT!
  • ENJOY 🙂
Optional: Roll cookie in crushed nuts, whole-grain graham cracker crumbs, or unsweetened coconut flakes
My advice – keep these in the freezer! This way you have to pull them out and let them sit for a few minutes before eating. It may help reduce eating them all at once!!!
