I made up a variation of the carob bean bars posted a few blogs ago and like ithem even better.
I took a can of drained chick peas, 2 bananas, 1 tab. cinnamon, 1/2 cup apple cider syrup, 1/2 - 1 cup GF oatmeal, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 cup of pecans and processed it all in my food processor. I spooned out the mixture into a greased 9x9 baking pan and baked at 350 deg. for 30 min. Cut after cooling and store in fridge. A nice healthy bar when you feel like having something sweet.
I am learning more and more about Hashimoto's disease and thankful I don't do gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and whatever else I avoid in my commitment to feel the best I can feel with the conditions I am dealing with.
I actually did 15 sit ups and 4 pushups this morning and it felt good. Walking is something I am trying to do daily too, even if only for five minutes. A nice walk can lift the spirits when you're feeling housebound or sluggish.
