Cookie Dough Lara Balls and More Rain….

Well it’s raining again… at least the rain is a warm rain, but not quite enough to get me jazzed enough to go dance in it…

Thankfully I’ve got my sweet rain boots to keep me fashionable and dry in this rain!

I’m also starting to think I need more rain gear workout clothes or something as we head more into fall and winter!  hmmm…..

Anywayzzzz… onto the good stuff!!

So, I am totally obsessed with Lara Bars, but they can be a bit pricey when you are trying to keep on a tight budget.  Thankfully, they are super easy to replicate, not to mention more wallet friendly!!

These lil guys are perfect for right before or after a workout, to take on the go as a quick snack to keep you satiated until lunch or dinner… you name it!

Cookie Dough Lara Balls

1 Cup Raw Cashews

12 Medjool Dates

1/4 cup Carob Chips

Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt

– Process cashews until they are ground up into small pieces, but not a powder

– Add in the dates and sea salt, and process until almost incorporated

– Add in the carob chips and process until it starts to look clumpy

– Use a spoon and scoop out enough to fit in palm of your hand and form into a ball.  You can wet your hands to keep from sticking too much to your hands

Enjoy! and keep dry!

Question of the day:  What do you do when you can’t workout outdoors??
