#RECIPEFRIDAY: Banana Peanut Butter Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Protein Cookies!

I can't believe it's already Friday!


This week has flown by even in my attempt to...

Slow it down!

One hot and sweaty run!

Seeing that The Slow Down Challenge is officially over (no more morning updates...le sigh!)...

I will continue being mindFUl about slowing things down and pacing myself day to day.

To be honest...

The past few days have really opened my eyes in many respects and...

Because of that...

I will be taking more time to re-focus my attention towards certain things! (That I believe need more attention...such as ideas, goals, things that I've put on the backburner really...)

As the challenge made me look FUrther into the notion of savouring, enjoying (more than what I was already doing)...

It also made view...

The notion of being busy and the 'interruptions' life may present us with, differently! (In a way that adds to the FUllness of life and our growth as individuals!)

I have to admit...

Every time I was 'interrupted' this week amongst all of my 'busyness'...

I saw each 'interruption' as an opportunity to slow down! (Which it totally did!)

Please interrupt me ;)

Needless to say...

This challenge has been a good one for me!


Alright so...

Seeing that's it's #RECIPEFRIDAY and all...

This means that I get to share a recipe with you today!

I know...
Exciting ;)

I gotta say...

After putting a call out for recipe inspiration last week...

Holy drool!

My goodness did you all come to the rescue in getting my creative juices going again!

That would be a foam roller to the left lol

So much so that...

I created a strange but good combination that I hope you will enjoy too!

So what do I have?
