raw donut holes

Here's one of my new favorite snacks. I got the recipe from Raw Recipe a Day on Facebook.
Totally healthy and SO delicious!
Since we don't eat walnuts at our house, I just throw in some almonds. I'm sure any nut would work.
I also substitute the agave with pure maple syrup because that's what I like, and have on hand.
Also, I like these cold, I don't warm them up at all.

Just click on the picture to enlarge recipe.

Baked Chicken Taquitos

Made These Tonight and they were yummy!

Makes 12 taquitos
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
• 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
• 1/4 cup salsa (green or red)
• 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
• 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
• 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
• 2 scallions, chopped
• 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
• 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
• 12 (6 inch) flour tortillas
• kosher salt
• cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 425?F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat matte or foil lightly coated with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients (except the tortillas.)
Working with a few tortillas at a time, heat them in the microwave between two paper towels until they are soft enough to roll (about 20 – 30 seconds).
Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the lower third of a tortilla. Roll the tortilla as tightly as you can.
Place the rolled tortilla seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas until the mixture is gone, making sure the taquitos are not touching each other. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with kosher salt (don’t skip the salt!)
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and golden.
Serve with salsa, sour cream or guacamole.
