Finding time to blog is hard. If it weren’t, I promise a month wouldn’t go by with no sight of my latest bites. Finding time to eat isn’t hard – we all gotta do that, but coming across a free minute to get to the store for those particular ingredients that make that picture perfect recipe is where it gets hard. Leisure time isn’t easy to find when you work and rarely get to play.

I’ve begun to learn that in order to keep our brains sane, we need an outlet. This outlet is where we’re no longer buried under our brain’s never ending, abandoned thoughts, but we’re instead being led by our heart’s passions. Before we know it, we’re happily lost. This happens when I visit takegoodbites, and I wonder how I let a month go by without allowing my heart to get lost again.

This visit didn’t involve baking or cooking, but just a few stirs and one pour. This made for the easiest chocolatey treat ever!

My ingredients:

– 1 cup of healthy fat from coconut oil

– 1/2 cup of peanut butter

– 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa

– 1 cup of maple syrup

– 2 cups of oats

-1/2 cup of quinoa

-1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup chopped pecans

The oil, peanut butter, syrup and cocoa were melted then poured to be mixed with the rest of the goodies. After a couple dozen spoonfuls were place on some foil, they were cooled and enjoyed with a cold glass of almond milk.

You bet the moment I forecast another gap in life’s hectic routines, I’ll be thinking about takegoodbites. Every heart deserves to get lost every once in a while.
