Eat: Chia & Flaxseed Almond Butter Bites

Because A.) it is a Wednesday afternoon and B.) there are 8 days until Christmas I thought it a good time to share a super quick recipe for the secret fuel I’ve kept in a (huge) bowl next to me all day. This took me 5 minutes to put together, which is frankly the MAX amount of time I want to spend on cooking this week. And don’t they just look so adorable in those mini cupcake liners?? (Embarrassingly proud of my cupcake liner usage).
