As I’m sitting here writing this post, a typhoon is brewing outside. The sky is darkening and the wind is beginning to howl, blowing all the crackling dry leaves down the street. It’s all reminding me of autumn, my favourite season! Not only do I love the invigorating change of weather, I just adore foods of the fall harvest: pumpkin, apples, cinnamon, spices… all those cozy warm flavours that just make me want to curl up with a blanket and a good book….
These little cinnamon oat energy bites will not only remind you of biting into a soft, chewy oatmeal cookie… but they’re also hugely portable, full of energising carbs and perfect for on-the-go snacks.
This weekend we’re housing athletes from Taipei American School for the international track meet (IASAS- International Association for Southeast Asian Schools) that our school is hosting. It’s fun… our 2 lovely guests are 10th grade distance runners. Both girls are running multiple events throughout the weekend, and I figured the best way to be a good host mom was to just keep a lot of food on hand at all times….
Sometimes the best things are born out of necessity… like these wonderful little bite-sized balls o’ energy.
I often come in from teaching 2 bootcamps so ravenous I could eat my right arm off, and feel like face planting into the closest food handy. I usually take time to make a smoothie bowl or chickpea omelette, but sometimes I just want something quick (and healthy!) to munch on while I’m whipping it up.
What’s a hungry dietitian to do??…
