I’m not sure whether to call these dessert or breakfast?
I tend to have a bowl stashed in my fridge at all times so I can just grab one or five anytime the hankering hits so I guess, technically, they could be called bressert, snunch, lupper, deakfast, or my midnight denack.
Either way, they are some damn good balls that taste just like a carrot cake Larabar.
This was another recipe that was born from my days on the Whole30 diet, but I had to add some white chocolate for two reasons: 1. I’ve had a jar of white chocolate chips staring at me for months now tapping its foot and snidely sighing as if it was wondering when in the world I was going to finally throw them into a recipe and B. The balls needed a bit of boost to take them from decently delicious to Oh-em-gee I can’t stop eating these things take them away from me before I start to turn orange like that chick from the Partridge family.
But forreal doh, I feel like a lot of things in my life could use a pinch of pizzazz at the moment. You know how they say bad things come in threes?
Well, I think what they really meant is that bad things come in three times infinity.
Ugh, and then I go and start sounding all whoa-is-me when, in fact, the things that are dragging me down are totes #firstworldproblems, and I have to remember to look and see that the glass in my hand is half full…of wine…lots and lots of wine.
And no, I swear that’s not a rogue cat hair all up in that pic.
Carrot cake Larabar bite sprinkled with essence of Weasley, anyone?
OMG, speaking of needing a special spark in your life, I found a new vampire series to read!
Hi, my name is Amber, and I’m a fang banging vamp tramp who is all up on A Hidden Fire: Elemental Mysteries Book One
Series by Elizabeth Hunter. I downloaded the first book (which is free BTW…FREE!!!!) on the 10th, and I’m halfway through the 3rd book already! Lucky for me, my husband is a workaholic so I get to spend every waking second of free time I have getting lost in the sizzling hotness of the immortal world and stuffing my face full of carrot cake Larabar bites! Hooray!
So, in conclusion, if you are having a rough couple of months and you want to escape your life for a bit, make up a batch of these, download the books above, and disappear in a billowing cloud of wood smoke and whiskey (read the books).
