Wow. That weekend flew by! Doesn’t it always seem like the weekends are just milliseconds long when the warmer weather finally arrives?! I mean – why can’t that happen in the middle of the winter – when I practically get frostbite from opening my window?
Spring Mondays are the worst. In my opinion. Energy is dragging and there is a nagging need just to sprint out of the classroom – through the hall – down the stairs – and out the door. All while screaming.. YOU CAN’T KEEP ME HERE! I AM NEVER COMING BACK.
Okay – maybe it isn’t that intense. It would look more like a nonchalant “I need to use the bathroom” and then secretively sneaking out the side door.
Since neither of those two things are options.. I have come up with a Plan C. After fooling around with my peanut flour – I have concocted some recipes that I will be sharing you. In time.
SO, allow me to introduce a simple, raw, Peanut-Butter Pick.Me.Up! Perfect for a case of the Mondays!
(Inspired by CCK’s fudge babies…)
Makes 7 Small Pick.Me.Ups
- 1/2 c. dates
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp honey
- pinch salt
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla protien powder
- 2 tbsp peanut flour
- Combine all ingredients in food processors (I used my magic bullet. It is all I have!)
- Blend. It will really stick together. I found that once blended, the mixture formed into 1 big ball and was rocking the bullet everywhere! Make sure you blend it and hold the bullet. Or else a mess might ensue!
- Remove mixture – and form into balls. I have dubbed them pick-me-ups!
This are going to give you a punch of energy from the dates. You will also be getting a pretty significant amount of protein form the protein powder..and the peanut flour.
I think it is amazing how dates kind of just take on the tastes of whatever food they are mixed with. Any one I have given a date based treat to – can never identify the dates as one of the ingredients.
Peanut Butter lovin’ in these lovers. They are easy to take anywhere! I wrapped mine in saran wrap – individually – to prevent them from sticking to one another!
Still not feelin’ this Monday?
Well, you can laugh about my rather dautning run this weekend.
Then, you can weep as I praise my mother for being the miraculous woman that she is.
