Things to put in and on your mouth (a PG post)

9 Jul

Ok, the title may have led you to believe this post is going to be a cheeky, horny housewife type post because that is the way your mind works. But I assure you, it isn’t, it’s completely innocent just like I am and always have been.

So something to put IN your mouth!!! I have been looking for a healthy snack to replace my cookie addiction and I couldn’t find anything that was just right. So i merged a couple of recipes and added my own favourite ingredients and came up with something soooo delicious I had to pass it on to my darling Wee to make in her kitchen across the country. Ste – you’re welcome.

Wee’s healthy protein bars

Ingredients

1/3 cup natural peanut butter (I used Ceres Organics creamy which is my fave, you could also use almond or any other creamy nut butter)
1/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup (I used pure maple syrup but I know you like raw honey and it will work too)
3 tablespoons coconut butter
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup oats
1 heaping scoop protein powder
(I use chocolate Isowhey or you could use a vanilla/natural protein powder and add cocoa)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup goji berries
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used brazil nuts and highly recommend you do the same, amaaaaazing)
Sprinkle sea salt

Put the wet ingredients (nut butter, honey/maple, coconut butter and vanilla) in pot and melt to combine over a low heat on the stove. Mix together the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, then pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir, stir, stir!! Then press the mixture into a small container and press it in so it’s nice and even. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before demolishing. I cut mine into 8 pieces for snacks.

Then i found something that I have been in love with ever since purchasing and I know you would to… behold, Korres Lip Butter;

I bought the plum version from Kit but they have a peach, pink, a pale brown/pink. I think the plum would look amazing on you too. If you don’t get it immediately after reading this post, it might have to be a Christmas stocking gift!

Christmas gift? But, Wee what about my birthday? Well dear Wee, it just so happens that I have just bought your birthday present! Whoopeeeee!! So when you come to visit us early October, I will present it to you. Yes, I have bought you something that I just bought for myself and if you don’t love this present I will probably collapse with shock because I am absolutely in love with mine!

Here are some pics of Stella Bella now because I want to publish this and text you to read it and make your Tuesday fabulous. Love you xoxoxo

And at a friend’s party, she was dancing to the party music and loving it. She is a true party girl just like her godmum.

Adieu and write back soon Weeweewee!!!
