King James Version (KJV)
My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
You’re never too young, too old, too busy, too shy, too ANYTHING to let others know about God! He can forgive anything and is so good to those that love him. Even if life seems crummy here on earth, we can know that we have riches stored up in heaven and that is so exciting to look forward to!
Here is a fun new recipe to keep your energy up!
I love the taste of coconut, but don’t really like the texture of the regular shredded coconut. Something about its stringy texture and how it gets stuck in my teeth just isn’t very appealing. I used Bob’s Red Mill brand unsweetened fine macaroon coconut flakes (usually used for making macaroons) instead and it worked beautifully!
Coco-Granola Energy Bites
2 c. old-fashioned oats (not quick oats)
1 c. unsweetened fine macaroon coconut flakes (plus more for rolling the balls in!)
¾ c. flaxseed (I used whole flaxseed)
1 c. chocolate chips, any flavor (mini if you can find them in your favorite brand!)
1 c. natural peanut butter
2/3 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix together dry ingredients (oats, coconut, flaxseed, chocolate chips) in a medium sized bowl. In smaller bowl, stir together the wet ingredients (peanut butter, honey & vanilla) until well mixed. Then pour the peanut butter mixture over the oats mixture and combine well. Using your hands, a cookie-dough scoop, or meatball tongs, shape the mixture into balls and place onto a large cutting board or cookie sheet. At this point you can either refrigerate the bites and eat as-is, or roll them in more of the coconut flakes and then refrigerate. The extra coconut tastes awesome if you love coconut, and also makes the bites less sticky!
I used my meatball tongs to make approx. 1-1/4” balls and this recipe made about 40 bites for me. Store in a tightly closed container in the fridge!
Here's the play by play:
Ingredients (brands I used)
Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another bowl before combining.
This makes sure that everything is very well mixed in the end!
Combine wet and dry, and begin making your balls.
You can refrigerate and eat at this point, but they're too sticky for me!
(proceed to next photo!)
Roll the bites in more coconut - it makes them cuter too!
I saved a few plain ones for those in my family that aren't afraid of messy fingers.
Cover them and store in the fridge!
Fast and healthy snacks are ready and waiting!
May God bless you this week!
I have more recipes (and a new craft!) to post soon!
