These are EASY! I have had a really bad cold and 3 kids and we still we able to make them with no fights, no tantrums and little mess!
I made myself a protein version of these (just add 5 scoops protein powder). My son saw me eating them and flipped out! (he is 2) he wanted one so bad. I was told not to give kids so I figured we would make some. Gives the kids something to do and its so healthy.
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup almonds
1 tbsp coconut milk (or any liquid but thicker is better i used the canned stuff)
1/2 cup dates
1/4 cup coco powder
1 tsp honey ( omit if you don’t want it to be sweet)
place everything in a food processor and blend. form into balls than flash freeze (on a baking sheet) then place into bags and store in freezer (or fridge) you can take them straight out of the freezer and eat they thaw quickly! I made about 60 small balls

Lately I have been eating protein bars after work outs or when I am too busy to eat. I was eating ones with trace amounts of gluten and diary and had a pretty bad reaction, then decided to make them. I couldn’t find a good recipe so I made one up.
Chocolate protein bars:
6 Pitted Dates
1/4 Cup Almond
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 Cup almond flour
1/4 Cup nut butter (almond, tahini, peanut, cashew ect)
1 tbsp honey
2 1/2 protein powder
1/3 cup coco powder
50g Dark Chocolate
Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend until it reaches a dough consistency
Heat chocolate up on stove until melted pour small amount on the bottom of a pan lined with partchment paper. cool slightly add batter, top will rest of chocolate (option you can add an extra scoop of protien to melted chocolate as well)
cool then cut . I am storing mine in the freezer.

My husband wanted to share this.
to quote my husband “You have seen a grape tomato right… but have you seen the new tomato grape”
he thought there was something funky going on with this one and wouldn’t let us eat it.

I tend to have a lot of smoothies. Sometimes I don’t get to have lunch or snacks running after children so these are my go to (add protein powder if I miss lunch completely). My mama mentioned she likes to add spinach. My first thought.. Yuk! but you really do not taste it! he is a smoothy with plum banana and spinach. Too green right, the kids will notice for sure.. Watch my magic trick!
Add blackberries and it turns purple
Now that’s a tasty smoothy!
Serves about 3 :
3-5 prune plums (frozen)
about 2-3 cups raw spinach
1/2 cup blackberries (frozen)
(optional baby carrots add water and carrots in the beginning, blend then add other ingredients).
My husband said I had ruined a good smoothy when he saw me adding spinach, but he drank 2 glasses 🙂

My daughter is thin and tall, it is really hard to find her nighties the arms are always long and too short in the body. It is also almost impossible to find them these days. My daughter loves them! So I decided to make her one and she picked the fabric. I did not use a pattern so it isnt perfect but I am pretty proud of myself! took me about 2 hours and she was able to wear it to bed.
It’s a little longer than I had intended but she loves it 🙂
