I made a promise to myself sometime in August that no matter what life threw my way, I was going to make a commitment to blogging on a regular basis. I changed the name to Because I Like Chocolate, revamped the site, bought a new camera and decided once and for all to make this blogging thing a priority. Inevitably, the biggest challenge was yet to come; the start of a new school year. But here we are, almost a week into semester #1 and I am still here. Just a tad overwhelmed (umm what sane person decides to take on 6 courses? You guessed it, that would be me) but I’m surviving. I even had time to make some cookies for everyone! Well not literally…I guess you could come to my house and get some, there are still plenty left…but I would rather you just make the recipe on your own. I think that’s relatively understandable.
These raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites are the perfect snack for back to school. Not only are they raw, vegan and gluten free (if you ensure to use gluten free oats), they only take 10 minutes to whip up, tops. 5 if you know that you have to be out the door because your class starts in 20 minutes. Seriously I spent significantly more time taking pictures of these raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites than I did making them.
So do you need a pick-me-up before that 5 o’clock class? Eat some raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites.
Don’t have time for breakfast early in the morning? Eat some raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites.
Want something sweet for dessert but you don’t want to give in to a big slab of chocolate cake? Eat some raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites.
Your kids need an after school snack before the evenings extracurricular activities? Give them some raw vegan peanut butter pumpkin bites. And be sure to sneak one for yourself too.
See, they are the solution to basically every first world problem.
And you can eat them with the comfort of knowing that you know every last ingredient that went into them (and sugar is NOT #1 on the list).
