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)

What no one tells you is in the bottom of the challenge pack

Happy Valentines Day!

Yesterday we packed up the fam, joined forces with some friends and traveled to State College PA to visit a good friend, my business success partner, who has been hit with a few curve balls of life!

And well, you can’t surprise a friend on Valentines Day weekend without showing up with a little treat!

2016-02-13 10.25.28I have been trying to really limit my dairy intake after a recommendation from my dermatologist and she is on a gluten free diet so I decided to take the best of both worlds and whip up a new recipe of shakeo no bakes!

Vegan chocolate no bakes with border

The cinnamon most definitely spiced things up and the rice krispies added a nice little crunch! See HERE for the full recipe.

And while the cookies were a hit and the day was a blast what I really came home focusing on is what I found at the bottom of that challenge pack box nearly 2 years ago.

Like I said above, this trip was to visit my business success partner – who is now one of my closest friends who I talk to on a daily basis.

But before we became really amazing friends, business building MOMpreneurs and a support system for each other – we were CHALLENGERS – together – in a CHALLENGE GROUP – trying to fight off those last few post baby pounds.

We both contacted our now coach, purchased the 21-day fix challenge pack, and got to work! We were bonded on that common goal and through the success of the group & reaching our goals we began to realize there’s so much more in that box than a workout program & meal replacement shake. We could pay it forward and share what we learned to help others!

We were challengers who found a passion for supporting one another and we became coaches. It wasn’t part of what I expected from that challenge pack box but what I soon realized is that I gained so much more than I bargained for!

Today we spend our time helping other MOMS and other WOMEN reach their health & fitness goals and build their own businesses from home. I finally feel like I have a purpose beyond someone else’s employee and beyond the roles of a wife and mom.

I have the opportunity to make a DIFFERENCE in this world and so can you!

My team is hosting an open house next Tuesday, February 23rd and you’re invited to join us! To hear about how I went from a CPA, Accountant – to Stay at home mom – to Work from Home MOMboss!

*Must not be working with another coach
