What do you do with the crumbs you find at the bottom of your munch bag? Hopefully you don't leave a drop and either pour them into your mouth or add them to your morning oatmeal.

Before we put the munch in their 2 oz bags we need to break up each flavor into tiny pieces. We are always left with crumbs no matter how carefully we try to break it up! Sometimes we melt the crumbs down again and use them for samples. But today we thought it would be fun to try something new with the munch crumbs.

This is the first recipe for us, using the munch, and it is deeeeeeeliiiiish-coconut munch peanut butter cookie dough balls…phew that's a long name! But it describes all of the yumminess packed into this ball of bliss. It's also choc-full of protein, fiber and omega 3's. It's super simple to make and can be eaten as an after meal treat, grab n' go snack, or for breakfast (the protein and fiber will keep you sustained through the morning).

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp crunchy natural peanut butter

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 Tbsp liquid sweetener of your choice (we suggest maple or coconut nectar)

2 tsp vanilla

lick-worthy beaters

Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl with a beater.

Next steps…

3/4 cup ground walnuts

3/4 cup oats

2 Tbsp coconut munch

1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt

ground walnuts-Omega 3's add lots of creaminess!

Add the above dry ingredients to the liquid mixture in the bowl with a spatula. You can add other healthy ingredients of choice here such as flax, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or maca to add a little more nutrient boost. Once mixed together use your hands to make little balls of cookie dough bliss (sans the eggs, butter and processed sugar). Place them in the freezer for 5 minutes the eat 'em up! You won't want to share, by the way.

Do you have more ideas for using left over munch? We want to hear about it! If we use your idea in our next blog we will send you a FREE MUNCH GIFT PACK!

Ready to eat!
