Life has been REALLY busy lately. Like, REALLLLLLY busy. As in right now at this moment I’m sitting here wondering how I even let it get to this point! I’m not one to be super into new year’s resolutions, but I’m definitely considering making one of my goals for this upcoming year to slow down. In business, life….just…everything.
I soooooo admire people who have “slow living” figured out. You know. The people who live in cottages in the mountains, spend time drinking coffee and playing in the snow, have a successful lifestyle Insta career, and somehow still have leftover time for their families and friends. They might even make an apple pie every night. I mean, who knows!
It’s a secret (not-so-secret anymore) dream of mine. I’m actually not even sure if that truly exists in this real life world! Maybe it does, or maybe it only exists on Instagram. Either way, the fact is that my current world looks nothing like that dreamy Insta world. If I’m being completely transparent, my right-now reality is in fact a super full calendar, a to do list that never seems to end, a messy home, and a continuous lifestyle of rushing through traffic (although Oklahoma traffic is way more chill than Dallas, Texas traffic) and eating protein bars on the go!
Definitely looking forward to slowing down a little bit next year and enjoying every moment just a little bit more!
In the mean time (as I rush through this busy last week of the year), I’ll be getting by with these delicious Matcha Chia Seed Energy Bites!
They’re like little homemade bites of heaven! Sweet blended dates. Lightly salted cashew butter (or non-salty, but I love the sweet/salty combo). Crunchy chia seeds. All topped off with wholesome matcha powder and shredded coconut for a delicious energy boost!
Once you make these, they can be stored in the fridge and taken on-the-go any time! They last several weeks, so a big batch of them is always a great idea. 🙂 OH, and in case you were wondering, they’re a MILLION times better than a protein bar or granola bar when you’re running around town!
Matcha Chia Seed Energy Bites
- Blend the dates until they form a paste.
- Add the cashew butter, chia seeds, coconut oil, and 1 Tbsp of matcha powder. Continue to blend until even.
- Create each bite by rolling the "batter" by hand. If the batter is too soft to roll, refrigerate for 1 hour before creating bites.
- Roll each Matcha Chia Seed Energy Bite in the matcha powder and shredded coconut. Serve and enjoy!
