Happy New Year y'all! I hope that this year is filled with nothing but good vibes, great opportunities and AMAZING food for all of you ♥♥♥
Speaking of amazing food... these No Bake Vegan Samoas will def set you off in the right direction.
So, let's just face the facts for a second. December wasn't exactly the healthiest month. Actually, if you guys managed to stay on track with the low calorie foods and consistently say "no thanks!" to the truckloads of sugary goods flying at you then I admire you. No, like for realz. Let me in on your secrets. HOW DID YOU DO IT?!
Because honestly, while I'd like to sit here and say "oh, Christmas break was a breeze! I don't even remember what chocolate tastes like it's been so long." Well, I would be lying.
Even if I were able to somehow magically convince y'all that I wasn't lying....the scale would clarify that I was lying.
The countless holiday group pics with me posing with chocolate stains on my sweaters would tell that I was lying.
The candy cane crumbs that are oh so effortlessly decorating my car floor would scream SHE'S LYING.
The list could go on; it's quite.... sad really. But hey, it's definitely nothing we can't undo, right? 🙂 That's why January 2017 we're starting off strong with the low cals, Yeah! Gym membership in full effect! 8 glasses of water a day! No Bake Vegan Samoas for breakfast!
...no really, I'm not kidding.
This girl definitely started her morning off dunking cookies into a nice cold glass of almond milk and there was *pretty much* no guilt. The fact that these little beauties are refined sugar free means that we can treat ourselves a little. 😉
The base for these cookies is SUPER easy to make, includes just 4 simple ingredients and requires NO oven time. I know, it's like Christmas is happening all over again (and tbh I'm okay with that). Then, for the deliciously sweet coconut topping, we're cutting back on some of those cals by substituting the traditional caramel sauce for an easy 2 ingredient PB fit & light maple syrup combo (which IMO tastes even better).
What you're left with are soft and chewy, chocolate-y, caramel-y cookies that make this whole new years healthy eating resolution thing a piece of cake (or should I say cookie).
