I’m officially obsessed with Game of Thrones. I’m definitely not getting out enough. This puppy has taken over my life. So I’ve made my life about getting him potty trained and watching men fight ’til the death. The potty training isn’t going as well as Thrones binging. But I have to remember he’s only 9 weeks old and we’ve only had him for a little over a week. But it’s frustrating when he holds it for 7 hours at night then during the day, he does what he wants when it comes to urination. Not poo, just urination. He’ll go to the bathroom twice outside, then as soon as he comes inside, he goes again. Right on the carpet.

So I understand the small bladder thing, but if he can hold it for 7 hours, there’s absolutely no reason for him to let it go 5 minutes after already going. He even hopped up on the couch and pissed on a pillow right next to me. Straight up. Do you think it’s some sort of dominance thing? Or hatred for me thing? I don’t know. I don’t get it. I feel like how my parents probably felt when I was a teenager. Just at a loss for what to do. I even cried the other night out of frustration. I keep trying to listen to all the advice and be a good mom, but it feels like it’s not working. We take him out all the time, we reward him with a treat and say “good boy, potty outside” every time he does it outside. He even looks to us for a treat when he goes outside, so he knows he’s doing something right. But it doesn’t seem to be enough. Today I’m going to go get a bell for us to use every time we go out so he knows to ring it. I’m hoping that’s the miracle to all of our potty training issues.

It was funny the other day when someone said that babies come after dogs. I feel the complete opposite now. If I had questioned having a child before, there’s no way now. If I’m stressed out by a dog that pees about a tablespoon full of liquid, how could I ever handle a child? Impossible. I don’t understand how parents do it. I think I’ll just stick to trying to master raising a puppy and understanding what they are saying on Game of Thrones.

So back to that show. I’m obsessed with it, but I’m not 100% sure that I love it. It’s pretty effed up. I mean, when you kill animals and children in a show, it’s pretty bad. Adults, whatever. It happens in pretty much every show. But horses. Don’t ever kill a horse. I have to cover my eyes every time something frightening like that happens. I’m not really into death. But I’m super into the dragon girl. I can’t wait until her dragon messes some bad people up. I’m jealous of her dragons. I bet they were easily potty trained.

    Juli! These are AMAZING! WOW! Thank you so much for all your amazing wonderful recipes! everyone should try these! Great sweet treat when you are eating clean 🙂

  2. Tim says:

    So, I’ve tried to make these about three times now and each time they’ve came out runny. I’ve tried using more coconut and I’ve tried using the no-stir almond butter without any luck. Anyone know how to thicken up the consistency?

    1. juli says:

      No clue, they should harden up if you freeze them

  3. Cameron says:

    just made these in an ice-cube tray (little easier to pack when cycling). Delicious.
    I added some bacon fat into the mix as well….yummmm,bacon…..

    Thanks. these are great.

    We made these the other day, absolutely amazing. The almond butter mixture tastes like a chik-o-stick or the inside of a Butterfinger. Is there ingredients you cold add, where you could make the inside mixture more of a dough so it can be baked and made crispy, like the inside of a Butterfinger?

      haha no clue!!

  5. Lori says:

    Perfect timing! I was looking for paleo snacks/treats to make for my husband’s Christmas stocking. I’m going to make them in a mini cupcake tin, then hide them in the freezer under the chickens until Christmas. He’ll never look there haha!

  6. Lindsay says:

    I made these this afternoon. Absolutely delicious 🙂 I love all your recipes Julie.

  7. Peggy says:

    Will these stay firm at room temperature?

    1. juli says:

      depending on the temperature of the room but they definitely soften

    I love this recipe! I use Stevia drops instead of honey and add at least a tsp of vanilla (to taste), and a scoop of flax meal. I just completed another batch and had to check the trash can to be sure I used almond butter instead of peanut butter.

  9. Heather says:

    I love these so much but they are going to be the death of my vitamix! Anyone else having an issue or what am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    1. juli says:

      im not sure why it would beat up your vitamix :/

  10. Annamc says:

    These are fantastic! I added some chopped almonds and ground celtic sea salt between the almond butter and chocolate layer. Huge success base on the reactions of my guests.
