Happy Anniversary B&B!

Life is about taking chances – chances that force you so far out of your comfort zone. IMG_9086

It’s our 1st Anniversary!

When we took the leap of faith to launch Burpees & Bordeaux a year ago we didn’t know where it would go. We knew we wanted to share our journeys – the highs and the lows, we wanted to share solid research backed information, and we wanted to share our love for fitness (and wine). Little did we know we would connect with some of the most bad-ass women in the industry, grow not only as friends but also fitness professionals, and also expose our most vulnerable selves. We are so grateful for each and every one of you who read our blog and support us in our journey. A special shout out to our friends, our families, and significant others who support us day in and day out! Thank you to our friends at lululemon RF for letting us reach more individuals and all of the Tone It Up- Long Island girls who always come out to support us.

We love you all and can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for us!

Recipe of the Week: Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

If you love chocolate chip cookies, this recipe is for you! This is one of my favorite sweet treats that I make for special occasions or if I have girlfriends coming over. It is quick, easy, and dare a say a healthy with a small punch of protein and fiber? This recipe comes from Tone It Up and it is amazing!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained (160z)
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I only use 1 cup)
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350 ° degrees. Spray a 9×9 pan with coconut oil spray.
STEP 2: Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor (except for the chocolate chips) and blend until smooth (I used my Ninja!). Add chocolate chips to the batter and mix with a wooden spatula, being careful of the blade. Pour into baking pan and sprinkle with a few more chocolate chips on top.
STEP 3: Bake for 45 to 60 minutes depending on what size dish you are using. You’ll know they are done when the top is slightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow bars to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting.
STEP 4: Try not to eat all of them in one sitting!!!!!!
Enjoy!
