Happy Monday everyone! I am so so happy today-I actually have relax time after school for the first time in two weeks! I’ve been so stressed out lately, what with homework and getting my school club up and running, studying for the SAT, getting ready for college applications and dance shows and school tests and and and……
But today, I think finally figured it out. I figured out how to be organized and productive and motivated.
I think I discovered the secret to ensuring that your Monday is ALWAYS marvelous!
Make sure you put reminders up everywhere you look to love yourself and love your life
Hace a clean, organized, un-cluttered workspace (I just cleaned my desk -and added the whiteboard-last night and I feel so much more productive!)
Live every moment of your days to the fullest
….and always make sure you have a good snack ready and waiting 🙂
This recipe I made created using the Living Intentions Sprouted Superflour I received to review, and it came out perfectly!
As you know, there is no ailment that cookie dough cannot fix. Even if its a bad case-or a good case- of the Mondays.
These cookie dough truffles actually taste like Raw cookie dough, in taste and texture. So they are pretty much perfect. Highly addicting. The sign of a good recipe.
(Almost) Raw Cookie Dough Truffles
- 1 C. Sprouted Super Flour (or a mixture of your favorite whole grain flour and almond meal)
- 4 large medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 C. nut milk
- 2 1/2 heaping TB raw almond butter
- 1 T. vanilla extract
- 1 T. maple syrup
- 2 T. ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- dash salt
- 1 tsp stevia extract (or to taste)
- Chocolate Chips or Cacao Nibs (as many as you want!!!)
- Optional: Cocoa powder, coconut shreds for coating
Soften the dates in the nut milk for about 30-45 minutes (or just put in microwave for a few seconds). Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips into a food processor and blend until everything is well incorporated. Adjust sweet/salty to your preferences. Pulse in the chocolate chips (Maybe 1/4-1/3 C to start?), then roll into balls and keep in the fridge until you are ready to eat. If you want to dust them, roll the truffles in coconut shreds or cocoa powder (or a mixture of the two, which is what I did) before putting them in the fridge.
Now go sit down at your clean desk with a couple of truffles, maybe a glass of iced coffee, and enjoy your luxurious, Marvelous Monday!
And Tuesday. Wednesday. Thurs-you get the idea 🙂
