So for my Mr.’s Bday. He had a request of a Bday dessert…and I made it for him. BUT THEN I wanted to make a little sweet chocolatey treat for myself. So WHATs happening here??
My kind of yum yum.
Chocolate Pumpkin Truffle Cookie
1/2 C Pumpkin Puree
1/2 C Cashew Butter
6 Tbsp Cacao (or Cocoa) Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 C Pure Maple Syrup
Combine in blender and mix thoroughly.
+1 Tbsp Cacao Nibs (or Mini Chocolate Chips)
Spoon mix in and place in refrigerator for 20mins. Scoop onto lined baking sheet.
Bake (350) for 10-12mins
Let cool and keep in fridge. Enjoy!!
Tastes like a rich dark chocolate truffle!
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!
