8 large strawberries, fresh or frozen (if using fresh add ice cubes to taste)
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Blend everything except coconut oil. Slowly pour coconut oil in while blender is running. Pour into a glass, garnish with some dried coconut or a fresh strawberry if desired and enjoy!
I’m Bananas About Oatmeal Breakfast Bites!
You will need:
-1 serving whole grain quick oats (1/2 cup)
-4 egg whites
-1 small/medium banana
-1 tbsp PB&Co Dark Chocolate dreams peanut butter
-1 tbsp sugar-free chocolate syrup
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-Cinnamon to taste
-Optional mix-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, etc.)
All I did was mix the ingredients together using my Ninja mixer. You can use a blender, Magic Bullet, etc. just as long as the mixture has a liquid consistency. I made the breakfast bites using the Bella Cucina Brownie Bites maker! The plates are non-stick, but I sprayed them with cooking spray anyways to be on the safe side. It only took a few minutes for them to finish cooking. Once they were done, I popped them out of the maker and topped them with Stevia and cinnamon.
This entire recipe was totally on a whim and I had no idea how they’d actually turn out or if they’d even cook properly for that matter. I made these yesterday and they are delicious! They are chalk full of protein, healthy fats, and whole grains! You can eat them all because the oatmeal is the serving recommended on the packaging! Your entire breakfast, fruit and all, are in these bites! It feels like you are cheating, but you’re not! Who would have thought you could make something healthy with a BROWNIE bite maker?! :)
Roasted Chickpea and Cucumber SaladIngredients1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, well rinsed4 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 medium-sized English cucumber
2 tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
3 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt
Juice of one lemon, about 2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
This, is, lovely. I made it as a loaf cake (and halved the original recipe, it was huuge!), but it’d be fine as a round or even as muffins/cupcakes. The cream cheese frosting sets it off something gorgeous, but could be replaced with ordinary butterice, maybe a vanilla or orangey sugar icing, or completely left out if you want. Also, if there’s a dislike of walnuts - leave them out, or raisins/other nuts could be yummy. Good afternoon-tea cake!
