If you know me, you know this is one of my favorite recipes (in my top 10 for sure!). To stay on track with my nutrition, I like to make sure I am incorporating foods I love and enjoy. Part of that is making healthy sweet treats that satisfy cravings and get me through the day.
Having prepped snacks on hand helps prevent you from over-indulging, reduces stress associated around cravings, and saves you time in your day. A major plus of this recipe is that all you have to do is throw your ingredients in a blender & stir in your chocolate chips, then you’re all good to go! Low effort recipe with high nutritional value and packed with deliciousness…what more could you ask for?
