Carrot Cake Energy Balls are bringing their double-packed punch of healthful + delicious goodness!
These little babies are the total package: gluten-, dairy-, and processed-sugar-free bundles of nutrients and flavor.
I love healthy foods because they make me feel good, all sharp-brained and physically energized. And I love delicious foods because, well . . . that’s pretty self-explanatory! I’m regularly on the lookout for ways to combine both qualities into one recipe. So it’s no surprise that Carrot Cake Energy Balls are a melding of tasty-yet-good-for-you stuff: fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, spices, and natural sweetener.
We have a new recipe today! Creamy Chocolate Cashew Butter is in the house!
Is there anything better than a homemade nut butter made from fresh-roasted cashews, unsweetened raw cacao, honey, and a hint of salt? Probably not.
This Creamy Chocolate Cashew Butter is a natural progression for me, considering one of my very foremost and original food loves: peanut butter.
I’ve been OBSESSSSSSSED with peanut butter for years and years. Whether I’ve mixed it into oatmeal or smoothies, dunked apple slices or bananas into it, or binged on it straight-up from the can (my version of mindless comfort eating), peanut butter has pretty much been LIFE for me.
I love other nut butters, too – especially cashew butter. Cashew butter, so rich and creamy – Mmmmmm. But have you seen how much a jar of cashew butter costs in stores??? I recently went to the grocery store with the intention of splurging on a jar of it – until I saw that it cost $13.99.
