No Bake Protein Pumpkin Apple Pie Bites

 

I’m beyond excited that Fall is finally here. Absolutely love decorating our home during this season but most of all eating and drinking pumpkin spice everything for the next couple months. Who’s with me on this? Although, apparently southern California missed the memo that it’s no longer summer. Folks, we’re still in the 90s over here. And since all things pumpkin are already sitting in our neighborhood store shelves, I can’t help but want to eat them all and pretend like it’s big chunky sweater season over here already.

In the meantime though, you can find me making these healthier No Bake Protein Pumpkin Apple Pie Bites because the thought of turning on the oven right now is making me dread the whole baking thing. And since you all know I’m all about making recipes with a healthier twists, I wanted to let you in on a couple ingredients I’m currently obsessing over. Coconut flour and almond flour to be exact.

Both flours are healthier options when baking or in this case no baking-baking (ha!). But all things considered, “neither of these flours are “better” than the other. Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats and is free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories, and has a low score on the glycemic index. Almond flour is extremely healthy, but has a bit more calories and fat, while having fewer carbs and grams of fiber. The higher calorie and fat content isn’t a bad thing, and this makes it a great choice for those on a low-carb, ketogenic, or higher fat diet. So you can see, it really comes down to your specific needs and preferences.” — Dr. Axe

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .
.
I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
