While COVID-19 has changed the way most of us spend our days—it doesn’t mean that there aren’t still plenty of fun ways to fill those days at home. We truly believe in finding ways to bring a sense of normalcy to life right now, and one of our favorite things to do when we’re spending more time indoors it to bake.
Baking is a fun way to spend quality time with your family, it can be done with a healthy amount of social distance and it will produce some pretty delicious results.
Here at McAuliffe Chiropractic Office, we are all about finding balance when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This of course means exercising, eating right, getting regular adjustments, and indulging in a sweet treat every now and then.
One of our favorite recipes when we have sweets on the brain comes from Certified Nutritionist, Claire McAuliffe, from Fun Sized Eating. These flourless peanut butter cookies are a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth, but have a healthy twist! They are made with simple, natural ingredients, like organic coconut sugar, don’t contain any artificial sweeteners and will give you an extra serving of protein!
After all who doesn’t love a little extra peanut butter in their life?
This recipe is the perfect way to spend an afternoon indoors, it is simple, easy, requires minimal ingredients—and moms, even the kids can get involved in this one.
