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

I read this a few weeks ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since. It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game more so with all the social media outlets but remember this... Stay true to who you are because that itself is what sets you apart. And how are you using your uniqueness to inspire and uplift others?

Happy Father's Day to all! Especially to my dad and this hunk. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important you both are to me and the girls. And to my love, thank you for working so hard for us and for your unconditional love! For raising our girls to be kind humans and to always believe in themselves. Oh and for finally realizing you were missing out on the matchy matchy. You totally surprised me when you said you actually wanted matching pajamas. 😆😘

  • #ad Most of us remember to grab sun protection when we're headed to a pool 🏊‍♀️ or the beach 🏖 but don't forget about all the other fun outdoor activities. ☀️ It's so crucial to keep our little ones skin protected as well as ours too! .

Loving the Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection®  as it's free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients! But best of all, this sunscreen contains the highest level* of zinc oxide for superior UVA/UVB protection for babies with sensitive skin. And I've been using AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen. So awesome that it's for both face + body. Save $3 off any Aveeno Sun or Aveeno Baby Sun product at CVS through Ibotta #SunnyMoments @aveenous @cvspharmacy #CVSBeauty PC: @lin_marty
