7 super-easy no-bake treats i have been eating from around the internet : awesome food round-up

happy monday!
i hope you had a great weekend.

did you read my post from last week about falling off the health // fitness wagon? [i am blown away by how many folks have read the post!]

lets talk about healthy treats!
do you follow my 'vegan treats' pin board? [i have TONS of awesome 'need-to-bake' recipes that i hope to get around to making in the next couple years ;)]
today, i have 7 awesome treats i have been baking lately.
usually, on sunday nights, i will bake a few batches of energy balls or bars & keep them in my bike bag or at work for the week.
[note : all photos are from the blogs that are linked with the recipes]
here we go : 

1) super-food energy bars with cacao from this rawsome vegan life

2) vegan & GF no-bake layer bars from {never} homemaker

3) DIY coconut apricot KIND bar [these are super good. i made mine with cranberries instead of apricots] from fit foodie finds

4) chocolate covered mint patties from this rawsome vegan life [seriously, LOVE their blog!]

5) no-bake peppermint patty bars from oh she glows [these are SO good!]

6) almond cocoa butter from delighted mama [this is delish on toast or used as a base for bars + balls]

7) raw vegan chocolate chip cookie dough balls from love veggies & yoga. [i love these ; you make cashew oat flour ; which is new to me. these have a really great flavor. you could add protein powder too, if you want more 'staying power']
good, right?
and easy! i love being able to make treats in place of purchasing them. i get to control the portion & the ingredients. and i also find thats its far more cost effective to create these treats vs buying them.
[it takes a bit of time, but your health is totally worth it!]

see you tomorrow!
