I was inspired to experiment a bit too.
One sweet potato got the cocoa roasted treatment, and the other got the following.
Peanut Butter, Maca, & Nooch* Sweet Potatoes
(* I am giving in to using the word nooch even though I hate it because typing out nutritional yeast gets annoying.)
- One medium sized sweet potato, cubed
- 1 tbsp peanut butter melted and thinned with a little water
- 1 tbsp nooch
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1/4 tsp maca powder
- splash vanilla extract
I mixed the above in a bowl, tossed the sweet potatoes in the mixture, and roasted them next to their cocoa counterparts in the oven at 375° for 50 minutes.
My god. I ate them ALL. The entire baking sheet. They were both extremely delicious and worth the ginormous food baby I was carrying around after the fact. Oh and Heather wasn’t kidding about how delicious the smell was throughout the house. I want to take a bath in these mixtures, they are so good!
Today I got a little sumthin sumthin in the mail!
A couple weeks ago I offered to send my friend Brandy at Second Chance Happiness a couple squeeze packs of Barney Butter so she could try it out before committing to a jar, and she suggested we make a full-on swap out of it, to which I happily agreed!
She sent homemade orange ginger granola and these amazing Great Balls of Fire, which are very akin to the (now retired) Cocoa Mole flavored Larabars, but BETTER. I have already eaten three, and that bag might not make it through the day!
She also sent me these lovely handmade earrings!
Are those not the cutest?!
I’m too lazy to take my barbells out, so I just slip the other earring on next to it! 🙂
Brandy, thank you again for your generosity! I love my gifts, and yours should be arriving before the end of the week!
Do you wear earrings? I’ve just recently started wearing dangly earrings again. I think they’re so fun!
