Bliss-ful Cookies (and a Giveaway!)

Smart Food

Last week, I took the winner of the Battle of the Spreads, and decided to celebrate its win with a new recipe… Cacao Bliss cookies!

The flavors blend together fabulously in these little pillow-y treats. Coconut, chocolate, and nut butter… what’s not to love?

Blissful Cookies

Bliss-ful Cookies

1/4 c almond butter

1/2 c peanut butter

1/4 c Cacao Bliss

1 egg ( a flax egg would work as well!)

2/3 c sucanat (or brown sugar)

Blissful Cookie Ingredients

Preheat oven to 350*F and grease a cookie sheet. Mix together all ingredients (you may need to use your hands a bit!), and roll into 1″ balls. Place the balls 2″ apart from each other on the pan, and bake 12-14 minutes, until the tops are crackly and the edges are browned.

Makes 10-12 cookies.

Want to win some Cacao Bliss for yourself so that you can make some of these cookies? Or perhaps you just want to enjoy it on oatmeal, fruit slices, or warm toast. However you enjoy it, you have a chance to win a jar of Cacao Bliss today!

To enter, simply click here and enter your email address . One entrant will win one jar of Cacao Bliss.

And if you don’t win, you’ll still get a 10% off coupon for anything in my Open Sky store, so you’ll at least get a discount if you want to buy a jar for yourself!

Smart Fitness

On Tuesday, I successfully bike 6 miles in 22 minutes, with no knee/IT band pain. Hooray!
I did most of the strength training I had mentioned, but only did one set of lunges because it was irritating my IT band.

This morning, I did some more weights. I love how strong (but shaky!) I feel after a good lifting session!

Push-ups, 1 set of 15

Chest press, 2 sets of 15 (10 lb)

Dumbbell Shoulder press, 2 sets of 15 (10 lb)

Deadlifts, 1 set of 15 (10 lbs)

Bent over rows, 2 sets of 15 (15 lb)

Ab work

Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in some cycling tonight as well!

    That’s an exciting time for a bride…have fun!

    The cookies look amazing! I haven’t been able to locate any Cacao Bliss, but I’m still on the prowl! Mmmm!

      I read that as, “I feel like i CAN lift a 10 ton truck afterwards,” which didn’t make nearly as much sense!

    Ahh, those cookies! I’m seriously drawn to the short ingredient list. All I’m missing now is the Cacao Bliss! I entered for the free jar, but when will we find out by? Because if I don’t win then I’m definitely going to use the coupon to get a jar =)

    Miss you so much! I’m getting so excited for you with the big day right around the corner <3

      You should get an email within 5 or 10 minutes if you won, but if you didn’t, the coupon is good for a week from yesterday!

      Miss you too. We’ll have to plan a blogger road-trip meet up once I move to NY!
