ENERGY BITES


Full of many healthy goodies, peanut butter energy balls are exactly what you want to be snacking on! 

Introducing – The easiest snack you’ll ever make!  Made with all healthy ingredients and refined- sugar free.  These energy balls will satisfy all your late afternoon cravings.

This same recipe exists already on the blog, deep down in the archives.  Actually one of the first things I ever shared here on The Well Floured Kitchen.  I had made square energy balls, which is still an option.  Yet, most people are looking for round energy balls, so I thought it might be time for an update.

I did change one thing about them.  The amount of honey has been reduced to 1/3 a cup.  I was so happy to find that they are still sweet enough to appease my nagging sweet tooth.  Also, did I mention the hint of chocolate?  I used a couple tablespoons of my Navitas cacao powder – my favorite and I highly recommend it.  But these can definitely be made with any cocoa powder you have available.

They are so simple to make, literally dump all the ingredients in the food processor and give it a whirl.  They will form a dough in about a minute, then roll them into balls.  Little kids can easily help with this recipe, they will especially love rolling the balls.  Like playdough that you can eat.

Really the only downside is how quickly they disappear!  It makes about 30, depending on the size of the balls.  I use this 3/4 ounce scooper, which is about a tablespoon and a half.  With 6 of us, that is less than 4 each!  I need to start making a double batch.

Store them in the refrigerator, and grab one whenever the craving hits!

INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
⅓ Cup Honey
¼ Cup Ground Flaxseed
½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
½ Cup Coconut Oil, Melted
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder

PREPARATION
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until it is well mixed, and forms a dough.

2. Roll into balls. If the dough is too soft, place in the refrigerator for ½ hour until it firms up, then roll the balls.

3. Refrigerate until serving.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL COOKIES

Half chocolate dough and half peanut butter dough makes double the goodness! These swirled cookies are rich, fudgy and delicious!

I say often on the blog, weigh your ingredients – it is so important for good baking.  It’s something I do for every single thing I bake.   My scale was lovingly overworked, but alas one day it stopped altogether.  I have a feeling it was mad about something, since on its way out it whispered to the other appliances… psst all of you – come with me!

So my food processor promptly followed suit.  I’ve been using the same one for 16 years, but sadly the company no long sells all the parts to it.   So there has been lots of flipping through amazon reviews, trying to cobble together new and old pieces that will work in harmony.

whatever… I can live without them temporarily.

But lastly, the one I can barely say without tears, my #1 kitchen tool.  My Viking professional mixer.  That big, oversized, takes-up-too-much-counter-space, lovable monster.  10 quarts and 1,000 horses have carried me through triple batches of bread dough, mega batches of cookie dough, and cakes for every possible occasion.

After fruitlessly calling every appliance repair store in a 30 mile radius, my sweet husband decided to take it on himself.  He narrowed down the problem to a blown circuit board.  How?  No idea, I’ll just stick to the cookie making, thanks.  There was smoke last night wafting through the house from the basement.  From soldering of pieces of my baby.  Latest status, the gears are turning, now there is one other rogue wire to be reconnected.  So close!

But impatient.  Yet I will let none of these keep me from more baking.  I relearn doing things with less, practice my flour scooping technique 🙂   I kneaded a triple batch of bagels by hand this morning.   A workout indeed.  But more importantly, these cookies.  These cookies, the ones you will dream about after tasting just once.  Chocolate, peanut butter, more chocolate!  So soft and tender, they melt in your mouth.

Really, they make everything better.

INGREDIENTS
½ Cup (4 Ounces) Unsalted Butter, Softened
½ Cup (4 Ounces) Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup (7 Ounces) White Sugar
½ Cup (3.5 Ounces) Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
½ Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Cups (9 Ounces) Flour
¾ Teaspoon Baking Soda
¼ Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 Tablespoon Milk
⅔ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips

PREPARATION
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter until creamy. Add in the peanut butter and beat until it is smooth and creamy.

4. Add in both sugars and beat well.

5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl beat once more. Add in the eggs one at a time, allowing each to be completely mixed in. Stir in the vanilla extract.

6. Add the flour mixture to the mixer bowl and stir just until combined. All the flour should be absorbed into the dough. Take ½ of the dough and move to a bowl. Add the cocoa powder and milk to this half of the dough. Stir until combined.

7. Add ⅓ cup of the mini chips to the chocolate batter and ⅓ cup to the peanut butter batter.

8. Place the doughs next to each other in the same bowl. Scoop cookies that are half chocolate and half peanut butter. (Approximately 1 and ½ tablespoons in size) Bake for 10-11 minutes until very lightly browned on the edges/bottom. Allow to cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

9. Store in an airtight container.

WHOLE GRAIN CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH DARK CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING

Moist chocolate cupcakes frosted with chocolate peanut butter icing.  Perfect for any celebration!

Chocolate cupcakes made with whole grains?  Yes, it is possible!  Made with barley flour, these moist cupcakes will surprise you.  Barley flour is lower in gluten, and works really well for baking.  But if you don’t have any barley flour, these will still taste great with cake flour or even all purpose.

I’ve been on a bit of a chocolate and peanut butter kick lately.  I’ve shared with you these peanut butter cheesecake truffles, and before that there was this Brownie Layer Cake with Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting.  We even recently cooked up a batch of last summer’s favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce.  So I thought to myself, is that too much for one blog?  But then I came to my senses and realized there can never be too much chocolate and peanut butter!

Since barley flour is lower in protein and gluten than traditional white flour, it is usually recommended to be used in part with other flours.  But one time I made this recipe with all barley, and I was thrilled with the results.  If it was a cake, it may not have worked.  Cupcakes are small enough to not need a ton of structure from the gluten, which is why this works so beautifully!

And that frosting, so rich and amazing!  I used Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa, but any dark cocoa will work.

These delicious cupcakes are exactly the thing you need for your next celebration!  Or you know, a Thursday!  I know you can’t wait to jump right in, so check out the complete recipe over at Tastes of Lizzy T’s  where I am a contributor.

PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIE SMOOTHIES

Finally, a smoothie I can embrace.  Although I make smoothies all the time, I never drank one until now.  Much to my dismay, I do not love fruit.  Why oh why do all smoothies have fruit?  I do tolerate a certain amount for my health, but it is not my favorite.  (BTW, this has been very helpful in growing adventurous eaters.  If they see you continuing to try a food you are not crazy about, they will be encouraged to do the same.)

But now that I’ve found a new way to enjoy a smoothie without fruit, I am excited by the possibilities.  I am on a mission for “fruitless” smoothies, or maybe just ones so tasty I don’t notice a bit of fruit.
Check out that straw!  Do your kids love to drink from a straw?  Mine do, but I hated throwing away all those bits of plastic.  Stainless Steel Straws have been a great eco-friendly alternative.

This smoothie tastes just like a cookie, but it is naturally sweetened with just a bit of honey.  Yum!  The sweetness will depend on your brands of peanut butter and yogurt, so adjust the amount of honey to your liking.

I did try making this with just whole oats and the immersion blender.  It was a bit too chunky for my taste.  Now I process the oats first in the blender, I like them ground just slightly larger than oat flour.  Then I just add the rest of the ingredients for a quick, easy and filling snack.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats, Finely Processed
2/3 Cup Whole Organic Milk
1/2 Cup Whole Milk Plain Yogurt
1/3 Cup Organic Peanut Butter
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla
1 Tbsp. Honey

PREPARATION
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or blend with an immersion blender.

PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE BITES

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites – You can’t eat just one!

Peanut Butter.  Cheesecake.  Little bites of goodness to pop in your mouth.  Disguised as a traditional chocolate truffle, what a surprise to get a mouthful of smooth, creamy cheesecake.

These guys are so much easier than a full out cheesecake.  No worries about cracks or water baths, no need to even turn the oven on.  Yet all the yummy flavor of a traditional cheesecake.

Chocolate and peanut butter are definitely best friends, so they were an obvious choice.  Although the truffles are pure peanut butter cheesecake, I rolled them in a sweet coating of cocoa.  I made a second batch that had mini chocolate chips in the cheesecake.   The mini chips made them a bit harder to roll, but the taste was worth it!

If there is any concern about the messiness of rolling these guys in dark cocoa, plain confectioners sugar would be a great substitute.  I don’t know about you, but I always walk away with a bit of chocolate on my shirt.

I tried these both frozen and not, and they are great either way!  I think the frozen version would be super cute on a lollipop stick.  Either way, for a hot summer party these guys will soften up quickly.  They will be easier to eat if served right away.

INGREDIENTS
8 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
¾ Cup Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Honey
½ Tablespoon Sour Cream or Yogurt
½ Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar

PREPARATION
1. Beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter, honey and sour cream until the mixture is smooth and fluffy. Place bowl in freezer for 30-60 minutes.

2. In a shallow bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Take the peanut butter mixture from the freezer and scoop out small balls. Roll the dough lightly between your hands to form the balls, working quickly so that it doesn't start to melt. Take the balls and roll them in the cocoa.

3. The balls can be refrigerated or frozen.

HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY YOGURT POPSICLES

Just 5 ingredients and no refined sugar make these simple strawberry yogurt popsicles a healthy snack for kids. Greek yogurt packs this recipe with protein!

Hey guys! It’s Manali  from Cook With Manali sharing with you some homemade Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles today! The days are getting longer and warmer and I am really happy about it. As a food blogger, nothing gives me more happiness than to have some extra hours for clicking pictures. Seriously it’s such a relief! What is also making me happy is the fact that popsicle season would be soon upon us, or in fact I should say that it’s already here and that’s why I am sharing this recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles with you guys today!

Popsicles are one of my favorite treats to make during spring and summers. If you ask me, nothing beats a refreshing fruity popsicle when it gets hot. I become this crazy popsicle lady as soon as the temperatures begin to soar. So many flavor combinations to try and so little time! You can get really creative with popsicles and they are also a lot of fun. Peanut butter & chocolate, coconut & mango – the combinations are endless. The coconut peanut butter and chocolate popsicles were my favorite from last year! These are also a great way to make your kids eat some fruits. I am sure no kid would say no to such a frozen treat. When you make popsicles at home, you know what you are adding in so it just makes them a whole lot better than the store bought stuff.

The other day while doing grocery, I spotted some really pretty strawberries. I have this problem. I cannot resist pretty looking strawberries! Even if I already have a box lying in my refrigerator, I would buy one more just because they looked too pretty to let go. Just me?

Anyway so I bought this huge box and made these strawberry yogurt popsicles. It’s so easy to make these – puree the berries with some sweetener. Mix the yogurt with the same sweetener and then pour the liquid alternately into the mold and freeze until set. You only need 15 minutes to make these!

You can either combine the strawberry and yogurt mixture together and then freeze it or make layers like I did. I just think the layers look prettier but if that looks like a lot of work to you, simply combine everything together and freeze. I hope you guys enjoy these refreshing strawberry yogurt popsicles this spring and summer!

I have used maple syrup in this recipe, you may use honey or any sweetener of your choice.

INGREDIENTS
10 ounces strawberries [around 2 cups]
4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

PREPARATION
1. To a food processor add strawberries, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, lemon juice and mix till you get a smooth puree.

2. In a bowl, whisk together greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon maple syrup and vanilla extract.

3. Fill each popsicle mold with 2-3 teaspoons of the strawberry puree. [To bring in a little change, you can also fill some of the popsicles with the greek yogurt mixture first.]

4. Then place 1-2 tablespoons of the greek yogurt mixture on top. And finally again add few teaspoons the strawberry puree till your mold is full.

5. Place the popsicle mold in the freezer. After 2 hours, when it's slightly set, take it out of the freezer and insert the stick into the center. This way the sticks stay in place.

6. Freezer overnight or till completely frozen.

7. To take them out, place the mold in warm water for 15-20 seconds and then pull gently, the popsicles would come out easily.

8. Enjoy the strawberry yogurt popsicles!
