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

  • Apparently even FALL decided to go on a last minute vacay. 😆🍁🏖 Don’t blame it one bit. Just wish I could be back at the Disneyland Hotel poolside with this never ending 90 degree weather. 😬🔥 .

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪
.
.
Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .
.
Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
