Adaptogenic Protein Bites ♥

IMG_7031

These bites are so delicious and oh so easy to make! I am a big fan of adaptogen elixirs to anything I make and these are no exception! For this one, I used Wylde One’s Immune Shrooms. Per their website:

“Immune Shrooms is a powerful, synergistic combination of immune-boosting mushrooms and adaptogenic herbs to help strengthen, protect, and balance the immune system. This anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich elixir is great for when you’re feeling worn down, fatigued, and need to revitalize your body and recharge your immune system. Also great taken daily to support overall vitality and wellbeing.”

I am all about that! I mean, winter is on its way, and it’s definitely getting colder, even here in NC so I love anything that will help my immune system. And of course I added some protein powder in there because a little protein never hurt anyone ♥

poor doggy, adaptogenic protein bites are for ME! 

Here’s how I  made my bites:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of dates (softened in warm water for 10 mins)
  • 3/4 cup of oats
  • 1 packet of Wylde One Immune Shrooms (optional)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used Huel)
  • 1 tbsp of walnuts 
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter

Directions:

  • pulse all ingredients in a food processor until it’s smooth and clump into a ball
  • use your hands and form mixture into balls
  • enjoy right away or put in the fridge to harden a bit, depends on you! Either way, it’s delicious!

That’s it! Easy peasy! Let me know if you make it and what you think!

Until next time,

YOU GUYS. This banana bread recipe is insane. I didn’t add any type of sweetener- no sugar, agave, maple syrup, honey, NONE OF THAT, but it was still sweet enough and oh so delicious! I could’ve probably eaten the whole pan but I had some sort of self control 😅 Who said banana bread couldn’t be healthy?? So without further adieu, here’s your new favorite banana bread recipe 😜

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite nut butter
  • 1 cup oat flour ( I made my own by using 1 cup of Trader Joes GF oats and making it into a flour using my magic bullet)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts (optional)

Instructions:
