I made a video you guys! Seriously, I never thought I would make a video about cooking but I did!

I’ve actually been thinking about making videos for a while now but just never had the gusto to do it. I made this video a few weeks ago and was still skeptical if I should post it.

Fortunately, a bunch of you that took the reader survey (thank you!!) told me that you wanted to see more cooking videos… so here ya go!

Let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment here or on my YouTube Channel.

I would love some feedback for future videos.

Pumpkin Energy Bites

Now onto these pumpkin energy bites. I’ve made a few ball recipes before and I have to say that so far, this one is my absolute favorite.

It could also be that it is fall and I am, like everyone else, craving all things savory and pumpkin-ey.

Doesn’t matter either way, they are delicious.

Made with pumpkin, spices, coconut, and dates, then rolled again in coconut flakes they are the perfect little afternoon snack.
