Sharing a must have healthy cookbook and one of my favorite recipes from it!
Happy Friday! I’m super excited to share one of my new go to recipes with you as well as a healthy cookbook you need in your kitchen ASAP! The cookbook is called 100 Days of Real Food On A Budget and was created by Lisa Leake. To give you a little back story Lisa originally created a blog, 100 Days of Real Food, which then lead her to start creating cookbooks. She currently has three 100 Days of Real Food, 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous, and now 100 Days of Real Food On A Budget. I absolutely love when bloggers create additional businesses from their sites. So inspiring!
Anyways, more about the cookbook! This particular one is all about eating better with breaking the bank. Lisa understand that avoiding processed foods and reaching for wholesome, fresh ingredients can get expensive. So she created this cookbook to show you how to make a variety of unprocessed dishes for $15 or less per recipe #praise The best part: she barks it down per serving.
I felt it was my obligation to share this amazing cookbook with you and highlight my favorite recipe so you saw just how good it is! These Oatmeal Cookie Energy Bites cost only $0.77 per serving (two balls).
This recipe is extremely easy and great to have on hand for an afternoon snack. Joshua and I have both been reaching for one or two of these when that afternoon hunger pang hits. A couple of days I have grabbed one before working out and find it’s the perfect amount to energize me. I typically work out in between breakfast and lunch and sometimes wait too long. So a little snack is needed! These bites are a snack you can feel good about.
Oatmeal Cookie Energy Bites
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 2/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl combine all ingredients and stir until well mixed.
- Cool into 18 bite-size balls with wet pads to keep the mixture from sticking to you (this really helped) and place on baking sheet

I hope y’all enjoy this recipe and pick up the 100 Days of Real Food On A Budget cookbook. I promise, you will love it! If you do, message me and let me know what your favorite recipe is from the cookbook. I would love to hear!
