mini moringa cakes // matcha frosted

Mini Moringa Cakes // Matcha Frosted
Who doesn't love cake? I love cake but in moderation- given a choice between cake and ice cream and I'll always choose ice cream, always, always, always. However these mini cakes are the perfect size for when I need to satisfy my sweet tooth in the form of cake. 

What makes these cakes extra special you ask? They are filled with super foods galore - moringa powder, cacao nibs + matcha green tea.

raw "cookie" dough balls

Raw "Cookie" Dough Bites // smbp
After dinner I am always in need of  a little something sweet. It can be anything - a square of sea salted almond chocolate, a cookie or spoonful of nut butter. 

For a while now I have been addicted to little raw cookie dough balls- they are dangerously easy to make, as in anytime I feel like something a little sweet I can throw these together in no time. The beauty of these little cookie dough balls, they give you that little sweet something while staying pretty good for you at the same time.

It's a win win!

cinnamon maple pecan butter

Pecan Cinnamon Maple Butter //smbp
Nut butters are pretty amazing, am I right?! I love making my own from scratch, they are super easy to whip up, the most difficult part is waiting for the nuts to turn into butter. When I received my new Magimix (see my review here)  I knew the first two things I wanted to make: smoothies + nut butter. 
I had never made pecan butter before and wanted to give it a whirl- this nut butter is so soft and creamy // a total dream.

crispy tofu noodle bowl

crispy tofu noodle bowl // smbp
Does anyone else ever get super excited to have a day to themselves just so they can eat what they want- it doesn't even have to be a full day, just one meal any given day where all the choice is up to you. I sometimes secretly get excited when Justin tells me he is going to a friends house for "Guy Night" or on Saturday's when he has to work and I don't.....yeah I miss him, buuuuut him being gone for a short amount of time means I get to have whatever I want for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Justin and I don't see eye to eye on all food choices, he is pretty open to most things but I have a tendency to get strong random cravings for certain dishes when he could take it or leave it. 

However, I was really surprised when he was bummed that he missed out on this noodle bowl - I totally thought this would not be "his thing" and I ate it all and didn't save him even a taste {sad face}.
