You know when you were a kid…and you were asked 100 times over what you wanted to be when you grew up? Well- I pretty much have wanted to be EVERYTHING underneath the sun from a potter, to a hairstylist, to a doctor (for a second)…except for once thing. A writer.
I hate writing. I still do to this day…I’m a terrible speller. I’m not the best at articulating. AND- it’s downright hard to do. I’m sure you’re wondering why I ever started a blog if I hate writing. 😀 The way I look at blogging is sharing my experiences with food and fitness through photos! I also pretend like I’m talking to you…not writing. Hence my very casual style of writing.
Anyways that’s beside the point. I am here to announce today that I will be publishing my first e-cookbook!
Can you guess what the focus is on based off of this recipe?
HEALTHY SINGLE SERVE DESSERTS with vegan, gluten free, and paleo options!
I couldn’t be more excited to have finally bit the bullet and jumped face first into this whole e-book thing. I’m nervous, excited, happy, and scared at the same time! I’ve never done anything like this before…but I can tell you things are going really well and I’m loving every second of this whole process. I am taking care of the design, all recipe creation, and photography. The whole shebang.
I chose Healthy Single Serve Desserts because you guys go crazy when I post them. My Paleo Double Chocolate Brownie and Vegan Single Serve Oatmeal Cookie (which will both make an appearance in the book) have been some of my most popular posts. I also selfishly chose this theme because of my dessert obsession. By just creating a single serve dessert, I am able to control my portion so that I don’t go overboard 😀 I figured why not create 30-40 unique recipes and stick em in a book so that you have them all in one spot!
So far I’ve got 9 recipes done. Hey- I’m almost a fourth of the way done! All of the recipes obviously have a health focus. A lot of them can be made in less than a minute and some of them only call for 3-5 ingredients. I want these recipes to be accessible, easy to make, and HEALTHY. Today’s recipe is a sneak of what you’ll get inside the book. I’ll be posting a few more teaser recipes before my launch in JUNE (<—-gulp).
This delicious treat literally calls for 3 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make.
- Brown Rice Crisps (I used the Whole Foods brand)
- Sun Butter (or any kind of nut butter)
- Brown Rice Syrup
The brown rice syrup is an essential part of this recipe. Hone probably won’t work because it’s a lot thinner than brown rice syrup and doesn’t hold things together as well. You can give honey a try, but I haven’t tested it!
