Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – Super simple, with just a few ingredients!
Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – The little guy and I made some treats! This kid is Oreo OBSESSED but then again, who isn’t?!!
1/2cup cocoa krispies
5 MEGA stuff Oreos (anything less is for sissy’s!)
32 grams fat free cream cheese
CandiQuik (@candiquik) white melting chocolate (best stuff EVER)
This is a good one to get the kids involved with but it can be messy! Fun, but definitely messy. Place 4 of the Oreos in a zip lock bag and crush them either by hand or with a mallet. Dylan chose to beat them senseless! Mix the crushed Oreos, cocoa krispies & cream cheese together in a bowl until well combined – and this is where it gets messy. We found it easiest to do it by hand vs. using a spoon! Once well combined, roll into 6 even sized balls and set on wax paper. Place the balls in the freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden before dipping in chocolate. Melt chocolate in a small dish for about 60 seconds, stirring at the 30 second mark. Insert a tooth pick into the top of the ball and dip in chocolate. Set back on wax paper and repeat with the remaining 5. Place back into the refrigerator/freezer until the chocolate has set. Take the last Oreo and remove the filling. Crush the 2 cookie pieces in a small bowl. Spread some of the white filling on top of each truffle and then dip into crushed cookie. Store covered in the refrigerator.

2 slices of Mahler’s low carb/high protein Flax & Soy bread (my favorite)
12grams Better Body Foods PB Fit + 1.5tbsp water

Frozen ‘Nice Cream’ Drumstick Bites – these are AMAZING with only 4 ingredients!
2 frozen bananas
3tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Amber Lyn sugar free dark chocolate chunks
Silicone ice cube tray
Place the frozen bananas & milk in a blender/food processor and blend until creamy & smooth. Spoon/pour into a silicone ice cubes tray mold (I used a pastry bag to make it less messy!) and place back in the freezer for 2 hours. Once frozen, melt chocolate in a microwave safe dish for 1-1:30 minutes, stirring every 20 or so seconds until melted. Remove ‘nice cream’ from the molds and place on wax paper. Insert a toothpick into the top, dip in chocolate with the help of a spoon and sprinkle with nuts. Work quickly to do the remaining bites and the place them all back in the freezer for 30 minutes to set! I’m not sure exactly how many this would have made because I ate a bunch of the ‘nice cream’ before I even poured it into the molds!

Gluten Free Coconut Flour Chocolate & Raspberry Crepes! The perfect weekend morning breakfast!
Makes 2 servings
2tbsp of Better Body Foods coconut flour
1tbsp TruVibe Organics cacao powder
1/4tsp ground flaxseed
1/4tsp baking powder
5.5oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3 large egg whites – room temperature
1tbsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
1tbsp melted Better Body Foods coconut oil
4 large fresh raspberries
1 packet of stevia
33grams fat free Philadelphia cream cheese
50grams Dannon Light & Fit fat free vanilla greek yogurt
Topping: additional raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce
Crack 3 egg whites into a bowl and allow to reach room temperature. In a separate bowl add the milk with the agave nectar and microwave for 20 seconds. (this will keep the melted coconut oil from hardening when added). Once milk & egg whites are room temperature, add in the egg whites & coconut oil. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and then whisk in the wet ingredients. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes so the coconut flour can soak up some of the liquid and thicken. Batter will still be runnier than pancake batter.
While the batter is resting, make your crème filling! Place the 4 raspberries, packet of stevia and teaspoon of water in a small bowl and microwave for 25 seconds. Next stir in the cream cheese until smooth and then add in the greek yogurt. Set aside.
Cook 1/8 of a cups worth of batter in a small skillet over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, without flipping and then slide out of pan onto a plate. While the next one is cooking, add 1tbsp of filling to crepe and roll up. Repeat with remaining batter/filling. Top with some more fresh raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce.
