I’ve developed this terribly awesome (awesomely terrible?) habit of eating gob loads of candy right before I run. Swedish fish, fruit snacks, Nerds, milk chocolate, yogurt covered almonds…you name it! The sugar is actually great for fuel, but this past week I thought I’d make something with a little more substance.
Before we get to that…
I went to a work meeting where there were vendors set up. While everyone was grabbing keychains, post-it notes, and pens, I was grabbing ALLLL the chocolate!
These Hershey’s toffee almond nuggets are the JAM!! Happy V-Day to moi.
Last Sunday I was browsing through my recipes and stumbled upon these Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookie Dough Bites.
I decided I needed to make them again. Right then and there.
(…and then I glanced at the date and realized it was the 1 year anniversary of that recipe post. Not really deja vu, but kinda like that!).
I decided to make them with…
…chopped butter toffee almonds for some crunch.
…half sunflower seed butter half almond butter.
…a little cinnamon roll protein powder.
…some pumpkin to moisten it up.
…extra butterscotch chips (caaaandy!).
…and chia seeds!
I used Salba Chia Seeds, which I was sent to try.
Chia seeds are a wonderful way to add fiber, Omega-3s, protein and antioxidants to smoothies, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, baked goods and…Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookie Dough BItes!
I love that they come in single serving packets, so I can take them with me on the go.
This week’s giveaway is for a 12.7 oz bag of Salba Chia Seeds as well as a box of 14 single serving packs (pictured above).
