Happy Happy Wednesday y’all!
I’m finished with my finals! Whoop! The highlight of my morning was when seester called to get my advice on an affordable, get the job done, food processor. She knows I am her go to gal for all things culinary electronic. Mmmmmm makes me feel so good to be her little kitchen confidant. Anyhoo, let’s talk about easy, simple recipes. Like recipes that really aren’t recipes at all because they are extremely effortless. This is very important because I am sure all of you are knee deep in Christmas receipts, tine, wrapping paper, cardboard boxes, and Christmas cookies that require 5 batches of royal icing. Sheesh. Or, maybe you are just like me and haven’t even started Christmas shopping. Yay for procrastination. Either way, you need these.
I put my Dark Chocolate Marcona Almond Butter to good use yesterday.

These “bites” are literally a mouthful. 

No Bake Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Oatmeal Gingerbread Bites. 
I told you so. 🙂

Full of yummy good stuff, like oats, agave, almond flour, dark chocolate almond butter, almonds, and ground ginger. Oh, and more dark chocolate. 

I mean, what did you expect?

Then, we roll in extra crushed almonds. 

These bites are mind-numbingly delicious!

Now, where did I put my Christmas cards?
