Hey guys! How’s your day going?? I am blown away by your amazing donations to my aunt’s relay page—thank you so much <3 (More info + Roons For a Cause at the bottom of this post)
So today, I had a little bit fun with Heather’s Moonie Pie Challenge. 🙂
Behold, the Almond Butter Crunch Moonie Pie
(I still have to cover it with raw chocolate ganache, but they’re in the freezer waiting to be frosted!)
Edited to say: Here’s the finished version!
The gist of the Moon Pie Challenge is that you purchase Heather’s ebook (which has the recipe), make your own variation of it, and post about it on the blog.
I couldn’t wait to get started 😀
First, I put the cashews and dates to soak:
Then made the dough:
I added in some coconut flakes to give it some “crunch” and made the bottom layer.
Next, the almond butter “fluff” (added 3 T almond butter, 1/2 T nutritional yeast and nixed the lecithin)
2nd layer of goodness:
Ridiculous, right?? 😀
All cut up:
If you’re wondering if I had any, I think we all know what the answer to that is 😉 Quality control is muy importante.
Today has actually been a super productive day. I moved all of the furniture out of one of the guest rooms (by MYSELF. I feel like a little hardcore, haha) so Ashley and I have room to do the Insanity workouts in there. I did the Fit Test today (which made me feel extremely out of shape, but it was a lot of fun!) and also took the puppers on a base trail walk.
I even gave corn chip a bath:
She smells like a baby coconut now 🙂
Time to head to work for a little while and then teach Zumba.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
