Choco-Coconut Superfood Bites

She put the chocolate in the coconut, she ate 'em all up. That's how that song goes right? Chocolate & coconut > lime & coconut. For sure.  When I was at the Garden of Life Blogger Summit back in May, I met Sophie Jaffe, a Cali-based yogi and creator of Philosophie superfood products. She was kind to send me some of her products to try out and I have to say her Cacao Magic Superfood Blend is delicious!! Especially for baking and making energy bites. I try to make a batch of energy bites or protein balls every week for when I need a quick little pick me up and for something sweet after lunch or dinner (let's be real, this is the main reason).

At the Garden of Life Blogger's Summit I also learned the key to making these energy bites from Moreya's FitBites demo...always use boiling water!! It breaks the oats down so you end up with a truffle-type consistency. It makes all the difference!

These lil' things are truffley, chocolatey, nutty and filled with superfoods. In addition to the superfood blend, I used chia seeds for an extra superfood kick and of course chocolate chips, the superfood of all superfoods. You could totally just sub in chocolate protein powder or regular protein and some extra cocoa powder for the superfood blend.

I needed some serious baking therapy on Thursday night but I had very little ingredients in my apartment. Sometimes this is the best time to come up with new recipes because it forces you to get really creative with what you have on hand! And it's definitely the cheapest way to bake.Gluten Free Sweet Potato Apple Muffins via - a healthy muffin alternative to when you're in the mood for something sweet!Gluten Free Sweet Potato Apple Muffins via

I had so much leftover caramel from when I made my Pumpkin Ale Cheesecake, and I was anxious to create something else with it! So I bring you...Coconut Caramel Oat Bars. These bars are filled with oaty goodness, healthy fats from the coconut and delectable sweetness from the chocolate chips and the caramel.
