Well…I promised on my IG that I would post the recipe for these yummy power bites…and, life happened.
They look a little better now, since I squared them up. But, that’s what impatience gets you. That has been a sort of theme lately. Love is patient, kind, etc. Between CBS, Fruitful Year 2018 and church, the love chapter in 1 Corinthians has been front and center. And I’m flailing around, trying hard to be what scripture describes as love but…humanity strikes. Eeek. Chieftess of Sinners. Yeah.
*ahem* So on with recipes!
I used this spice recipe…it is a new favorite! What do you think? https://pin.it/fbqisbbwfynkvc
I also made almond and coconut milk, and I’ll tell you it was so easy I don’t know why I waited. Oh, right. I thought I “needed” a big, fancy, expensive blender that begins with a “V.” Nope! Did it right in my reliable, inexpensive red Oster. The big fancy one isn’t even red. Who needs that negativity?
How I did this: I soaked 1 or maybe 1.5 cups of shredded coconut and sliced almonds in filtered water overnight in a mason jar. If you know me, I eyeballed it. I poured it into the blender, hit puree and let it make magic.
You do have to strain it. And really press out all the Yumminess that wants to stay. Here I am with my almond milk
And, in another wave of incredible brilliance that rivals Oz, the Great and Powerful, I actually used the leftover mush to make almond meal and coconut chocolate something or another. The almond meal was a 4 hour process, but simple. I spread it out on parchment lined baking pan and popped in in a 175*F oven and walked away. Checked it at 2 hours, it was still a bit wet. At 3.5 hours I turned up the heat to 275*F and it toasted up beautifully in 20-ish minutes. Here’s a before and after.
The coconut is probably best left unspoken, but I had about 3/4 cup of mush. I added 1 tbsp of Juice Plus Dutch Chocolate Complete and, well…I’ll eat it. Here, because it’s better, is a picture of MAG, also know as Dom. He’ll be a big brother in a few days.
That was his opinion of my coconut chocolate concoction.
