Have A Sweet Tooth?
If your like most women there are just times where you feel like you have to have something sweet, right? Problem is we are not always prepared for that moment and may grab something without thinking to satisfy that sweet tooth.
A good rule of thumb is to STOP and ask yourself, why do I want this? Is this taking me closer to my goals or further away? This works well for me unless I have allowed myself to get too hungry(BIG NO NO) and then mindless eating wins! UGH!
Or maybe its that time of the month and you feel like you could eat everything in sight and just might! Ha Ha!This is when we need to be REAL, ladies and just find HEALTHY ways to satisfy that sweet tooth. I promised some clients that I would share this particular recipe.
I usually find recipes from my favorite bloggers. I like to experiment with different ingredients until I find what I like! The Coconut Mama has a GREAT variety of simple healthy dessert recipes.
Wellness Mama is another one of my favorites and I have included a link for her Homemade Chocolate recipe. I also have one our posts with some delicious smoothie recipes that will be sure to satisfy that sweet tooth!
This recipe has been made over many times. I have found this one to be a perfect blend of Protein, fiber, and just enough sweetness!
3/4 cup oat flour (I grind this myself from old fashioned oats)
2 tablespoons of flaxseeds (I grind these myself also)
1/3 cup of raw local honey
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup of natural organic peanut butter
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until blended. It will be thick and clumpy, this is normal. Then cover and put mix in fridge for 30 minutes. Roll into balls and leave in fridge. The protein and fiber will leave you feeling full and satisfy your sweet tooth. Leave a comment and share if you enjoyed this post and recipe!
