While you’re snowed in, I figured I’d share with you the top Recipes from our recent Recipe Swap. Of course, like every recipe swap, we drank too much wine and had too much fun, so we didn’t get any snap shots of the food! But I can assure you ALL are worth making! So without further ado here are the top three!

1st Place Jenn’s Peanut Butter Balls

  • 2 T smooth peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1/4 c pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond flower/meal
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Steps:

  1. In a food processor, blend oats until fine and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine coconut oil, peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla. Beat with a mixer until smooth. Add almond, oat flour and salt.
