 Another goodie for you today that has been featured on Plate Joy, one heck of a fabulous online meal delivery service! 

Simple, nourishing, delicious: kind of everything FTGU is, just with better photos (and more of a guarantee these things will get into your mouth... because they'll just bring them to you.) ;) So, another sneak peek this week, and a sample of the kinds of yumminess Plate Joy is sharing with the world. 

I've shared a lot of no-bake cookies and energy bites on the blog in the last half a year, mostly in my personal quest to limit how many packaged bars I eat (and also to deal with those sneak-attack cookie cravings). These Coconut Squash Macaroons were a big hit, as were the Gluten-Free Coconut Cocoa Macaroons, Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies and Love Bean Drop Cookies

These Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter Bites came about as an answer to a desperate {and unusual} craving for oatmeal raisin cookies. I had no interest in turning on the oven, and no interest in packing my cells full of sugar, so to the rescue: almond butter, coconut flour and some chewy gluten-free oats. They're full of fiber and healthy fats, so even one of these little bites is enough to tell your body that fuel is abundant, things are not desperate, and that you can go back to whatever you were doing that required you to refuel. Quick post-gym snack! Easy en-route-to-work breakfast! An excuse to eat cookies!

The recipe below reflects just a small batch: it makes 3-4 pieces, because I know my tendency to eat the whole entire tray regardless of how much there is, so I like to nip that ickiness in the bud by only making as much as I'd be okay with eating in one go.... if say, I did. ;) Feel free to double or triple the quantities if you'd like to make more, or if you have a voracious roommate or partner who might like to help polish these off.
