Cocoa Nutty Dough Balls

Today’s recipe is a simple yet delicious (and mostly healthy) dessert. Also, since it only yields 10 balls, you could accidentally eat them all for about 1000 calories ;)

Cocoa Nutty Dough Balls

Ingredients:

– 1/3c oat flour (you can grind up rolled oats)
– 1/3c ground pistachios
– 1/3c ground cocoa-roasted almonds
– 2 Tbsp Agave Nectar
– 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/4c chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life – vegan)

Mix everything together, form into balls, and pop in the fridge for at least a couple hours. If you make 10 balls, they are 100 calories each:

Today’s run was a steady 3+ miles and I made it through with no GI issues! I like steady runs because I can just set the treadmill (6mph) and zone out.

And lastly is today’s food log:
B: bagel w/veggie cream cheese
L: Lime Tahini Quinoa salad
S: Tex Mex rice and beans w/salsa and guacamole
D: Caribbean black bean wrap (subbed hummus for guac and only used 1/4 cup beans)
I, of course, also had my usual over-abundance of coffee and not enough water. Oh, and I’m back down to 117 this morning!!
