Happy Tuesday y’all. Hope your Monday was short and your week is off to a great start!
I go through phases with food, where I get addicted to something and eat it nonstop for a month or two. So that’s where I’m at right now with these energy balls. Holy YUM. Except this one isn’t just a phase, because I will probably be eating these for the rest of my life. They’re that good.
They make a great pre- or post-workout snack, because the peanut butter provides you with energy and protein, while the fiber and chia seeds keep you fuller longer! They’re easy to make, and it’s great to grab out of the fridge on the way out the door. Plus they just taste like dessert. I’m a big dessert person, so since I’m trying to tone up my beach bod, these are a great dessert substitute.
Here’s the recipe (yields about 13-15 energy balls):
1 cup oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1-2 tablespoons chia seeds *can substitute with flaxseed
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips *can use regular choc. chips if desired; may also use raisins instead. add 1/3 cup if you want extra sweetness.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour (if you’re impatient like me, stick ’em in the freezer!). Remove from fridge, have a couple sample bites if you want, and then roll into balls. Place in a sealable container and store in the fridge!
Hope you guys enjoy – let me know what you think! Have a great week.
Hi guys! I hope you’ve all been doing well! We are busy as ever, but trying to make the most of this summer. Living on the beach isn’t half bad! Okay I’m obsessed with it, don’t judge me. Not gonna lie though, I’ve been really missing the mountains lately. Funny how that works!
I have to update you on my current favorite items. Like I said, I’ve had the mountains on my mind, which means cooler weather has been on my mind… Therefore I bought a long sleeve shirt! Does that make ANY sense, considering it is July and like a furnace every day where I live? NO it doesn’t, but that’s okay. At least I’m telling myself it’s okay. Fall will be here before we know it, so we must be prepared ladies!
This shirt is SO cute and SO perfect for a fall staple because it goes with so many things. I have big plans for it that involve pattern mixing. Can’t wait for that. Also it’s lightweight so if you throw it on with shorts you can really wear it whenever; perfect for layering in the colder months! Shop this shirt here and get 15% off with my code – “Riffraffrepbeth”!
Onto the next item. Let’s talk about white denim. I’m a big fan. I used to follow the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule, but now I kind of ignore it. White jeans make an outfit look so classy and chic, why would you NOT wear them all year long?! These are from Target and regardless of being very affordable, they are made really well!
I hope you guys have the best week, and thanks for reading! You’re beautiful and you’re loved.
