It’s summer, it’s hot, and we all need a healthy treat to snack on. I rarely crave fried food or heavy desserts in the summer, and baking becomes less appealing when I’d rather be outside enjoying the nice weather. These quick bites of chocolate and peanut butter solve all my issues! I’ve made these healthy treats so many times over the years. I store them in my freezer and grab one (or two) whenever I’m suddenly starving but dinner is 2 hours away. You know those peanut butter balls called Buckeyes that are made with tons of butter and powdered sugar? These taste even better than those and are so much healthier!
I just got my eyes lasered on Wednesday, but I made these on Thursday. If my bleary eyes can do it, so can you!
Laser surgery is super traumatic. I wasn’t expecting to be so stressed out.

I also love Coconut Butter Granola, so if you find coconut butter while buying peanut butter grab some! Continue reading “Peanut Butter Chocolate Cherry Granola”
On Sunday evening, when Michael turned on the NBA Playoffs, I went to the kitchen and mixed these up. They looked like an easy weekday breakfast, and let’s face it, I skip breakfast all the time. Or I eat a granola bar during my morning work break and call that a meal. It’s not a meal, though. These are, though! Continue reading “On The Go Oatmeal Cups”
This is is my 50th blog post! I’m so happy to have started this little collection of favorite recipes and random thoughts. It’s been so much fun to take pictures of treats and share them with you! I love talking to people from new places and discovering new blogs. I’m hoping to keep doing this for a long time! To celebrate this tiny milestone, I made these cupcakes. I took pictures of them, and then I shoved them into my mouth. SO GOOD!
My brother loves those Limited Edition Oreos. I love making cupcakes. Thus, I made him these last fall. They’re not overly sweet or rich, just tasty little peanut butter Oreo cupcakes! Continue reading “Reese’s Oreo Cupcakes”
