Almond Energy Bars

Author: Sam Woods

Live Cooking Show: https://youtu.be/1HF1O01BcLc

Recipe:

Base:

2 cups ground raw almonds

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 cup flaxseed meal

3 scoops whey protein

½ cup of almond butter

1 cup of melted coconut oil

3 tbs. of coconut sugar (the recipe calls for stevia, but I don’t like the weird aftertaste in my mouth.)

 

Frosting:

1 full slab of cooking chocolate, 100% cacao

½ cup of coconut oil

½ stick of butter

2 tbs. of cinnamon( more or less according to taste)

Sweeten to taste, more coconut sugar, like ¼ cup maybe…

Mix all base dry ingredients in a bowl first. Then add the melted coconut oil and almond butter. Sometimes I melt the almond butter with the coconut oil so it mixes with the dry ingredients better. Make sure the oil is mixed throughout and press into a 13x9 pan. Should be about ¾ inch thick, maybe more. Not exact science happening in a guy’s kitchen!  HA!  Refrigerate for about an hour.

While the base is cooling, put the frosting ingredients in a pan and on LOW heat slowly  melt the chocolate. Once it is melted turn off the heat and let it set until the hour is up for the base to cool. Pour the chocolate stuff over the base until all is coated and refrigerate for another hour or so. Then you can serve up and power up!!

Because of the coconut oil, these bars need constant refrigeration. If you set them out, they’ll last a little while, then they get crumbly. Still good, but messy. Let me know what you think.

Watermelon Fruit Pizza

Author: Rebecca Pardess


For this Watermelon Pizza, Greek yogurt acts as the “sauce,” adds a teeny burst of protein, and works as a tart and creamy contrast to the fruit. Without it, this recipe would essentially be a stacked fruit salad, and let’s be honest…that also sounds pretty tasty. Finally, we topped the pizza with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and kiwi. Talk about a brilliant flavor profile. The toppings add a powerful punch of antioxidants and bold, bright flavors — the pepperoni to the crust, if you will and kiwifruit orbs boast a level of tang that can’t be found in other fresh produce and packed with vitamin C and fiber, making them the cherry (or kiwi) on top of this recipe.
