Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites + A Sweepstakes

posted by on 10/26/2015 | 551 comments (leave one of your own)

My son is a busy little guy who plays sports, and he recently discovered that wearing activewear is simply the best. Or as he puts it: he likes wearing his “sports clothes”. I try to get him to wear clothes that aren’t for sports a few times a week, but the minute he gets home from school, he immediately changes into his basketball shorts. I get it, as I’m typing this I’m wearing yoga pants and a tank top and I haven’t done yoga in four days.

JCPenney asked us if we would like to shop for some activewear for Troy and he was all in because he is all about hoodies that aren’t shirts with buttons and warm-up pants that aren’t jeans. I was all in because I love JCPenney, they seriously have the best deals.

JCPenney has a fantastic selection of Nike in store and online: shorts, tees, fleece, pants, hoodies, socks, and shoes.

These warm-up pants he selected are lined with fleece on the inside and will be so perfect when it snows for the next seven months and we have to move the basketball playing indoors.

Untitled

The hoodie is also a good choice for winter, it is Therma-FIT fabric (microfiber fleece fabric that keeps you insulated).

Untitled

And because he knows that the perfect sports ensemble isn’t complete without socks and shoes, he chose a cool three pack of performance crew socks and a pair of high tops. He told me that “High tops make you jump higher, it’s science”.

Untitled

Also science: Active children that burn energy equal hungry children. My kids eat like it is their j-o-b. They love to snack on these Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites that I make and keep in the freezer.

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats-uncooked (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats)

1/3 cup pure pumpkin puree

1/4 cup ground flaxseed

Couple of tablespoons of chia seeds (I threw them in because I had them in the pantry)

1/3 cup honey (or more if you like sweet)

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until completely mixed. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Scoop and roll into one inch balls. Store in refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container. Makes 12+ depending on size of your scoop.

    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Телефоны Nokia 6700 Gold оснащены тремя протоколами для отправки и принятия электронных писем.

    Если говорить конкретнее, то это IMAP4, POP3 и SMTP. Возможностей коммуникации тут не так много.

    Для передачи файлов беспроводным путем (после сопряжения с соответствующим устройством) предусмотрен модуль “Блютуз” версии 2.1. Да, скорость передачи будет не настолько высокой, чтобы чем-то можно было хвастаться, да и беспроводную гарнитуру подключить не получится из-за отсутствия профиля A2D2. Но в целом модуль справляется с основными поставленными перед ним задачами.

    Normally I don’t read article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to check out and
    do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very
    nice post.

  • http://www.spuntiespuntini.it


    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Good blog!
