Almond Joy and No Bake Bites

No-Bake Energy Bites

Ingredients

1 c old fashioned oatmeal
2/3 c coconut
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c ground flax
1/2 c chocolate chips (optional)
1/3 c honey
1Tbsp chia seeds (optional)
1 tsp vanilla

Method

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like . Add a bit more peanut butter if they are not sticking together. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Keeps for up to one week. I don’t go through the chilling process…I just roll!

Tips

Substitution ideas can abound for just about any of these ingredients! Feel free to substitute in your favorite nut butter (almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.) for the peanut butter. And you could also add in some wheat germ in place of some or all of the flax seed. I would caution, though, against substituting agave nectar for the honey, as the honey’s thickness helps hold things together.

Some other fun substitutions for the chocolate chips (or an addition to them) could include: • chopped dried fruit (apricots, dates, raisins, etc.) • dried berries (cranberries, cherries, etc.) • chopped almonds, pecans, walnuts, or sunflower seeds • other chips (butterscotch, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, M&Ms, etc.) • other grains (different kinds of oatmeal, rice cereal, etc.)

 

Almond Joy Energy Bites

Prep Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes Yield: About 40 energy bites

Ingredients
12 oz. (about 2 cups, loosely-packed) Medjool dates (**see note below about types of dates and substitutions**) 2 cups almonds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)

Method

Add dates and remaining ingredients to a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine, then use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Blend the mixture for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture has moved past the crumbly stage and begins to clump and stick to the sides of the food processor.

Use a spoon or small cookie scoop to measure out a tablespoon of dough (or your desired size) and roll it into a ball. If desired, roll the ball in a bowl of coconut flakes. Or just set it aside to eat as-is. Repeat with the remaining dough. (Alternately, you can flatten the dough into the bottom of an 8×8-inch parchment-lined baking dish, then cut it into bars.)

Store the energy bites in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

**I used Medjool dates in this recipe, which are already nice and soft. If you substitute another kind of date, you may need to soak them in warm water for 10 minutes first in order to soften then. (Then drain them before using.)

Qi Gong: Simple and Smart

If you’re looking for a way to experience new things, connect with others and create a calm and healthy state of mind & body, Qi Gong is a gateway to this type of experience.  It’s definitely not new (approximately a 4,000+ year old practice), but it might be new for you, which can create a sense of hesitancy for some people.

So we want it to be simple:  You won’t need any special gear, clothing or experience. This is a 30-40 minute practice where you remain standing, but you don’t have to remain still.  You will be moving gently, breathing and paying attention (Don’t panic if you have a short attention span, or as we like to call it, ACA: arbitrary creative awareness), we change positions enough that you won’t feel trapped!  And when you’re done… you will have created more flow in your body and brain which does actually make you smarter!  For questions or concerns, please contact us.  Or register now to try something new:

This Saturday, March 19th 12-1pm.
Intro to Qi Gong w/plenty of time for questions as well.
