#1: Scarlett Orzo with Shaved Asparagus Salad
--Orzo didn't fly with this recipe...I'm going to try it again with quinoa
#2: Kale Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing
-- Didn't have all the veg I wanted to reeeally make it blog-worthy, but a good lunch nonetheless!
#3: No-Bake Chocolate Torte
-- According to my mom "not chocolatey enough"; and because I broke the news that it had avocado, everyone could taste it. Lame. I want to remake it and take that flavor down a notch, while enhancing the chocolate.
Are you all interested in any of these? Is it worth putting them on here or should I move on?
In the mean time..here's a sweet treat I've had up my sleeve for a while now. These chews can serve as a fantastic, filling snack or a nice sweet but light ending to a summer day : )
Almond Butter Chews
1/4 cup almond butter (Angela used chunky, which is what I would def recommend though I didn't do it)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup (Gluten Free) rice crisp cereal
3 tbs organic brown rice syrup
1 tbs chocolate chips
Mix together cereal and chocolate. Set aside. Combine almond butter, vanilla, and brown rice syrup in a bowl. Microzap for 30 seconds (or stir and heat on the stove in a saucepan if you're too legit).
These are best kept in the freezer and should last a few days.
