I have a few problems… chocolate and Lululemon are among 2 of my biggest “problems.”  So, I decided last week to put them together!  I love all of the amazing people that work at this wonderful company.  Many have become friends.  To me, It’s so much more than just a clothing store – it’s a lifestyle, and it’s a brand that you can count on.  I immediately walk in and feel at home.  (Probably because it is like my second home!) But the people, the clothes, the atmosphere and the brand are just simply amazing.  I decided to try out this recipe that I found on PaleOMG (and of course add chocolate) and take it to the sweet people at Lulu!  I think…I hope it was a hit!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond butter (or other nut butter or seed butter)
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • ¼ cup honey (optional- i like it sweeter)
  • 2 eggs, whisked
