I felt like celebrating today. It was snowing, I went to a 7AM spin class (which I'm really getting into now.. new addiction) and wanted to celebrate accordingly. I have always been a fan of the salty-sweet combination of peanut butter and chocolate.
If you haven't already noticed, I am pretty obsessed with healthy eating. But what makes me even happier is finding ways to sneakily incorporate dessert-like items into my meals. This was more like a dessert than a breakfast, but still uber nutritious and full of goodness. I definitely could not eat this everyday, but it's a fantastic combination that I will definitely come back to....
This is a thick chocolate banana maca smoothie bowl base with a plethora of deliciousness on top! I will break down each step below so you can make one, too.
- 4 frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup homemade walnut milk (or nutmilk of your choice)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 3 tsp raw cacao powder

Blend ingredients in a blender until rich & creamy. Caution: many blenders cannot blend frozen bananas on their own, so add liquid accordingly.

- Jungle peanuts
- Chia Seeds
- Raw buckwheat groats
- Goji berries
- Cacao Nibs
and then the amazingly decadent chewy raw cookie dough bites I made last night! I made these by "accident", and they turned out to be amazing.
Raw + Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites
- 1 cup pitted medjool dates
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup gluten free oats
- 2 tbsp organic peanut butter (raw is best- make it yourself)
- 1 tsp sea salt
Pulse ingredients in a food processor or blender until chunky. Keep covered and refrigerated up to 1 week. Scoop little balls onto smoothies, oatmeal, or eat out of the jar like me...
Chocolate Sauce (vegan)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp agave nectar
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp salt
Warm coconut oil over low heat until melted. Add the rest of your ingredients and whisk quickly. Pour over smoothie bowl and it will harden!
