I used to hit the McDonalds drive thru for a large McFlurry when I had a hankering for something sweet. Thankfully now that I actually care about the quality of food I eat, I have a different approach. Don’t get me wrong, I still have to feed the ole’ sweet tooth, so I’ve gotten in the habit of just whipping up desserts from the healthy, all-natural foods I keep at home.
I whipped these up when we had friends over for a cookout and the girls were emailing me for a recipe. As usual, I hadn’t measured anything out, I just eyeball these concoctions; so adjust as your see fit!
In a medium-sized bowl combine:
~1/2 cup almond butter
handful of walnuts
3 shakes of cinnamon
pinch of sea salt and
~1-2 Tbsp honey
Stir up and freeze on wax paper for 15 minutes, or keep ’em in the freezer (if they don’t get eaten!)
I made a 2nd batch dipped in melted dark chocolate, which was an even bigger hit. Oh yeah!!!!
