My sweet tooth is in full force…

Morning ya’ll!  Happy Saturday!! I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  I’ve had a relaxing morning with a body pump class and some lounging around.  Not sure what the rest of the day will consist of, but I know my husband has some projects in the works. 

————————————————————————–

I don’t know what it is, but I have had the biggest sweet tooth lately.  Don’t get me wrong, I like my sweets (chocolate), but I can usually resist temptation and keep the sweet snacking to a minimum (a few days a week).  There is nothing wrong with having a sweet treat every day, but for me, I feel my best when I don’t indulge daily because usually a handful of chocolate chips leads to another and another and another…you get the point.  🙂

Today I thought I would show you some of my favorite “healthier” options for when your sweet tooth is in full force.  Next time you have a sweet tooth, try one of these options before reaching for that cookie! (My mom wanted me to show you guys her Valentine’s cookies… she’s so cute).

One of my favorite easy ways to satisfy a sweet tooth is dates.  I love them plain, but they are also delicious with a little peanut butter or almond butter on top!  Another bonus is they are super easy to travel with if you need a snack at work, on a plane ride, or on a roadtrip.  

This picture does not do this sweet treat justice.  Chocolate chia seed pudding.  I followed the same recipe as my regular chia seed pudding just added a couple tablespoons of dark chocolate cocoa powder.  

The topping choices are endless!  I prefer unsweetened coconut, dark chocolate chips, and chopped almonds.

The last one is another play on the 3 ingredient chocolate truffles.  I customized the fillings and toppings to have a lot of variety and choices. Dark chocolate was always the base.

Some I filled with almonds, coconut and even peanut butter.

Then topped them with a little more dark chocolate and some toppings.  Sea salt is my favorite! 

Just freeze and they are ready to go!  The peanut butter filled ones were the favorite among my husband, sister and my sister’s boyfriend.

Hope you guys try some of these sweet treats! Have a great rest of your weekend! 

Questions:

  1. What is your favorite “healthier” sweet treat?
  2. Do you prefer salty or sweet snacks?
  3. Dark or milk chocolate?
