Another Monday morning. Anyone else find it harder to motivate on a cold Monday morning? I need all the help I can get, aka extra cups of coffee and breakfast handed to me since it takes every ounce of extra energy to get out of bed. Luckily I have some No Bake Maple Glazed Cinnamon Donut Holes waiting for me and they go perfectly with my morning, and afternoon cup of coffee!
These were actually created just before my No Bake Cinnamon Sugar Sweet Potato Donut Holes that were a favorite that turned into a staple. Since I like to switch things up and half, well only 3 out of 5 of us love sweet potatoes, 2 of us (Baby G and myself) being mildly obsessed to say the least. I cannot wait for him to enjoy all the goods but right now I’m just fine with him being a baby and enjoying the simple things, sweet potatoes being his favorite so far.
While I made these to have quick and easy, not to mention delicious, breakfasts since mornings are crazy they also make a perfect snack. Made with healthy whole food ingredients! Oats, almond flour, dates, sweet potato, and ground flaxseed sweetened with pure maple syrup and optional boosts like collagen, brewers yeast, and even adaptogens or protein powder. I’ll go over all of these in the notes and below but before I break all the nutrition down feel free to scroll right down to the recipe if you can’t wait and want to make them now. Don’t worry I don’t blame you I’d probably do the same thing!
If you’re a regular reader of the blog the ingredients are probably very familiar. If not don’t worry you can omit the ground flaxseed if you don’t have it but it’s really a versatile nutrient dense food you should try! For under $10 you can add it to so many things like topping oats, smoothie bowls, blending into smoothies, or even make into a substitute the next time you need eggs In a recipe. The other ingredient that might have you stumped is coconut butter, simple put it’s ground shredded coconut that’s it. You can buy it or in just minutes you can make it in a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, with just shredded coconut!
For the family again I leave out the optional lactation and collagen boosts but if you’re a nursing mama add them because it not only helps boost milk supply but gives you a reason to make them with MAMA ONLY and keep them all to yourself! With or without the added boosts they’re still great for boosting milk supply with the oats, almond flour, and flaxseed.
It’s been a LONG few days and weekend with being sick last week and a packed weekend, not to mention trying to catch up with life, so I’m going to keep this post short. I hope soon I’m bake to having all my posts written weeks a head of time but in most cases they haven’t been lately. We have so much going on, so many exciting things that I’m hoping pan out and I can share with you soon but it’s all about balancing life right now for the whole family. Plus we have 3 birthdays in our family within the next month and a half, let’s not even talk about my oldest turning 16!?!
If you want to know more about the lactation benefits check out some of the other lactation recipes I’ve recently shared HERE.
Hope you all have a great week and stay warm if you’re living where it suddenly got cold like it did here. We actually had snow a few times in the last few days but luckily it just melted right away.
It’s Meatless Monday and there are more great recipes linked up below and as always Deborah and I hope you join us and look forward to what’s cooking in your kitchen!
