Nutrient Dense Energy Bites

Energy Bites are the perfect afternoon snack for me at work. My job is often so busy that I forget (or don’t have time for) lunch so having these little power balls on hand makes things a lot easier! And, bonus: they are silly easy to make- my secret is I make a double batch then split it into however many add ins I want to make. This week I split my double batch into five.

I did have an extra motive for doing a double batch this week.  At work we got some new products in- berry powders! Berry powders are a great way to get the concentrated nutrition from the berries-and the powders are very versatile. So I wanted to play with them a bit, and I also needed a food “prop” for some product photos that I worked on this week for the shop’s website.

Life Lately: March

96cb1731882d097cff8ac94ab6604607February just flew by! I can’t believe it’s March already, but I think Oregon hasn’t gotten the memo yet. I woke up this morning to snow. I like snow, but I’m ready for Spring, mostly because I want to wear flip flops again!  This is going to be a bit of a long post, a lot happened in the last month! So grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started!

Geekery of the Month: Ready, Set, Bake

Ready, Set, Bake

 

This month I’ve been baking a ton so it seemed fitting to have it be my Geekery of the Month. How cute is that apron? I actually don’t wear one when I bake/cook. I find them annoying, but like the idea of them. That is probably really weird sounding, but that’s just me I guess. haha.
Be sure to check out my  Great Iggle Bake Off posts, Bread, Cake ( coming tomorrow!). And check the IGGPPC Forum for more info, and to see what others are baking. You can also use the #igglebakeoff and #igglenoms on twitter.

The Great Iggle Bake Off: Bread

I am a huge fan of The Great British Bake Off so when IGGPPC announced they were doing The Great Iggle Bake Off I just had to get involved. The first weeks challenge is bread, I don’t bake a whole lot of bread, probably because I don’t eat a lot of it, but it was also Super Bowl weekend and I had been planning on baking pretzel bites anyways so it just seemed to all fit!

Autumn Obsession: Pumpkin Bread

I feel like this fall I have eaten my weight in pumpkin bread, which could have gotten pretty expensive if I was getting if from Starbucks, or at the grocery store. Luckily pumpkin bread is really easy, and cheap to make!

I love my pumpkin bread recipe because of all the different spices I use, and because of how moist it is. It’s one of the few breads I never get tired of making!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you all. For so long I’ve wanted to start sharing my recipes, so I’m glad I’m finally doing so, and I hope you all enjoy!
