Homemade Aussie Bites

Have you heard of Aussie Bites?  It’s a treat made from Costco.  I made you some Homemade Aussie Bites!  I have actually never had the real thing, but people in my Facebook group have been raving about them!  So I made my recipe based off the ingredient list.  My recipe is easy, has fewer ingredients, no flour and no oil!  These are seriously good you guys!  You need to try them.  If you like energy bites, you may also like my Almond Joy Energy Bites or my Grain Free Energy Bites. These are a must try!

This recipe is also very adaptable to add in whatever flavors you like.  It would make a great pre or post workout snack too. I imagine they freeze well also, so double the batch if you like.

4 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies

We are about to go on vacation and I needed to use up some bananas.  So I made these 4 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies.  These were a cinch to make!  Less than 20 minutes.  I added chocolate chips to mine, but that is totally optional.  I can see raisins also working well in this recipe.  These cookies are healthy enough for breakfast! :)

This recipe is super easy.  Vegan, gluten free and grain free.  I used quinoa flakes, so there is a nice protein boost in here as well. If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can always use quick oats in place of them.  These cookies freeze great, so make a big batch and freeze some for busy mornings.

Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir fries are a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge.  This Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry comes together very quickly.  I always keep some cooked grains or quinoa in the fridge to add to meals like this.  This quinoa stir fry recipe is very versatile.  Just use it as a base to add whatever veggies you like.  I happened to have a couple orange peppers sitting around, so that was my starting point.  I also love broccoli in my stir fries, so I made sure to add it.
