I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Itty Bitty Energy Balls

When you need a little pick-me-up, but you don't want to grab that bag of cookies....

1  1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 cup hemp protein powder
2 tbsp ground flaxseed

1 cup chopped dates
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla

In a food processor whirl together the oats, walnuts, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, hemp and flaxseed until walnuts are chopped finely. Place in a large bowl.

Again in the food processor, chop the dates, carrots and vanilla together, then add the cranberries and coconut. Process until you get a nice stickyish consistency.

Add the date mixture to the dry and combine well. You may need to get in there with your hands.

Roll into 1" balls like this.

(Ok...that was the pretty picture, rolling the balls looks more like this!)

When you're all done rolling you should have about 42 itty bitty energy balls ready to be placed in a covered container and refrigerated. Best part, no baking required!

And ready to grab on the go!
