Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding

I’m just getting started with chia pudding…so you’ll have to forgive my obnoxiousness over the next couple of weeks because it’s going to be nothing short of chia mania!

If you love the combo of peanut butter and banana, you will absolutely adore this variety. 

Each recipe makes two servings, or enough to fill one 12-ounce mason jar. I’ve been treating this like a dessert lately, scooping out a couple of tablespoons when I have a taste for something sweet (which is like every day). 

This really makes an incredible breakfast– totally blows yogurt out of the water. And you can make it dairy-free by using nut milk. The only sweetener I added was a teaspoon of raw honey, but the combination of cinnamon, pure vanilla, and banana sweetens it up plenty, so feel free to omit if you’d like. 

The fact that it packs 13 grams of fiber per serving means it will stay with you and won’t spike blood sugar.

Un-bee-lievable Protein Bars

March 14th, 2019 | no comments

Like peanut butter fudge with a kick!

Made with either plant-based or bone broth-based vanilla protein powder, peanut butter, bee pollen and a handful of other simple ingredients, these bars store well in the freezer and can get quite soft if left out too long (i.e. you may need to eat it with a fork!). 

Bee pollen is one of nature’s most nourishing foods, housing nearly all nutrients required by humans to thrive. It’s rich in protein, folate, B-vitamins, minerals, and live enzymes.

You can buy bee pollen in either granule or ground form, but whatever you do, make sure it is 100% raw and free from pesticides and chemicals. Both Beekeeper’s Naturals (granules) and Bareorganics (ground) are trusted and reputable options. For this recipe I would recommend using ground bee pollen.
