One-Hour Freezer Cooking: Skinny Chocolate, Energy Bites, and Whole Wheat Pancakes

One-Hour Freezer Cooking

I’m f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting around to telling you about my very successful one-hour freezer cooking session that I did recently.

So this Peppermint Skinny Chocolate was a winner. I was kind of hesitant about how it would turn out, but I followed the recipe exactly — including the tips the blog suggested — and it was delicious. In fact, it was so good that I was tempted to literally lick the bowl out. Instead, I scraped it clean (see above).

I cut it in small pieces and stored it in the freezer and it’s the perfect treat on a hot day!

Next up, I made a batch of Homemade Energy Bites. These are the snack of choice for my kids this summer. And I love it that they are packed with pretty healthy ingredients.

One batch lasts the three kids about a week. But I can’t always keep up with the demand, so Kathrynne asked me if she could learn how to make them, too. See pictures of how her batch turned out here. 🙂

And while I was busy making Skinny Chocolate and Energy Bites, the guys were whipping up a batch of Whole-Wheat Pancakes.

I love baking and cooking together in the kitchen as a family. And now that we’ve overhauled our lifestyle with the move to TN, it’s becoming a fairly regular occurrence around here — which is so much fun!

    Might have to give the chocolate recipe a try. I have seriously been unable to enjoy skinny chocolate unless it has peanut butter in it. I just want to gag 🙂 Which is just me, I do not enjoy coconut oil. Just the health benefits 🙂

    Are you dabbling with the THM plan for yourself full time? I like to use half butter and half coconut oil for skinny chocolate; our tastes do change over time and I prefer stevia or Aldi’s Truvia blend over most other sweeteners now. Never thought I would ever say that but it is true!

    My daughters prefer to melt the fats, add in the sweeteners and see that they dissolve before adding the other ingredients.

    Looks like y’all had a good time in the kitchen. Which I still love your kitchen by the way. Totally jealous here of all that space and storage!
    Kathrynne’s batch turned out very nicely. I love it when my girls get in the kitchen too though this summer break it’s been like pulling teeth but who wants to be in the kitchen in the summer anyways? 🙂
    What I like to do is take the kids down to the library and have them pick out a cookbook and they get to plan a meal. My grandmother would do that with me. If you don’t already it might be something to do with Kathrynne since she’s taking a serious interest in helping in the kitchen.

    Crystal – I have been wanting to make the energy bites for a very long time, and today I finally made a batch and they are soooooo good. Thanks for a great and healthy recipe.

  • Cheryl says:

    Love your site and read it daily! Thx for all u do! Love u sharing you faith and being “real”. Any substitutions for the protein powder? I don’t have that on hand:(. Would like to try it without running to the store. Thx!

  • Amanda says:

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try the energy bites and the chocolate. I love mint so I have a feeling that I will be eating a lot of that this holiday season to satisfy my sweet tooth!
