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 ♥
Here’s how I made my bites:
1 cup of dates (softened in warm water for 10 mins)
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 😜
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
3 tablespoons chia pudding (2 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 3 tbsp water or almond milk)
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)
Recipe development is hard y’all! I give props to all the food bloggers out there that consistently put out new content and recipes for all to enjoy. My husband and myself thank you all 😝
So I thought I would share my favorite food bloggers and some of my favorite recipes from their blogs. And whether you’re following a specific diet or not, there’s something for everyone!
Without further ado, here are some of my favorite recipe developers (and now I’m hungry!):
Fit Foodie Finds: Lee is one of my real life friends from Minneapolis and is a fabulous human being. Not only does she post yummy recipes but her website has evolved into a lifestyle website where she posts about travel, beauty and fitness! Some of my favorite recipes from her site are: Spicy Thai Coconut Curry and Healthy Peanut Butter Cups!
Thug Kitchen: I have all three cookbooks. Enough said. I haven’t made any recipes from their website so I can’t list any links but if you have their first cookbook, you MUST make their lavender scones!
