Get Raw! #FoodieFriday

Leave a comment

Since it’s Friday & #Foodiefriday post I want to share another one of ‘My kind of YUMYUMS!’

Who doesn’t like cookie dough?! Try this more natural alternative!! I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Raw Cookie Dough

1 1/2 Cups Chickpeas
1 T Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Nut Butter (almond, peanut, hazelnut-whichever you prefer)
1 & 1/4 Cups Pitted Dates
2 T Oats
1 T Milk
Mini Chocolate Chips (you call on how much)

In a cup, cover the dates with water-(the longer they sit the softer they get-I only soaked them the amount of time it took me to mix other ingredients)
Then add all ingredients (including the dates’ soaking liquid), except chocolate chips, to a food processor and blend until very smooth.
Add chocolate chips as desired & ENJOY!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
