Peanut Butter and Butterscotch Balls

I like keeping a batch of these treats in the fridge as much as possible. They're perfect before a morning run or on the way to class. They stay good for about a week, taste delicious, and you won't regret grabbing a second one. 

Here's what you need:
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 1/4 C oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C peanut butter
1/3 C light maple syrup
1/4 C no-sugar-added applesauce
1 TBSP vanilla extract
1/4 C butterscotch chips

Here's what you do:
1. Combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, and salt. 
2. Mix the peanut butter, maple syrup, applesauce, and vanilla extract until well combined.
3. Combine the two mixtures and the butterscotch. 
4. Scoop into balls. Refrigerate or freeze. Enjoy!

Mixed Berry Smoothie

I have been begging for a blender and I FINALLY GOT ONE!!! Thanks dad. I immediately went to target, bought a huge bag of frozen mixed berries, and got to work. This smoothie recipe only requires 3 ingredients, doesn't need any added sugar, and keeps you full from breakfast to lunch (you can thank the Greek yogurt for that)!

Here's what you need:
1/2 C frozen berries
1/2 C orange juice
1 large spoonful of strawberry Greek yogurt

Here's what you do:
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend.

Pretty easy, right? My smoothies are more thick than ones I've gotten at a Smoothie King or a Tropical Smoothie. If you prefer them more slushy-like then just add more orange juice and subtract some yogurt. I have also used vanilla Greek yogurt and it tasted just as good! This recipe is easy to play around with and pretty difficult to mess up. It's perfect after a run or on the way to an early morning class.
