Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

If you are a lover of peanut butter and chocolate (especially together) then you need to make this recipe right this second. And be careful because it’s highly addictive!

 

 


 

This kind of dessert is the exact reason why I started a healthy dessert blog. A few years ago I followed a recipe for a healthy chocolate peanut butter bar and it was so delicious. I just couldn’t believe it was good for me so I had to share it with the world thus creating my Instagram which eventually led to a blog!

Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

Perhaps I’ve made it my mission in life to make as many versions of healthy edible cookie dough as possible because not only do I have an entire eBook dedicated to cookie dough recipes but this might also be my fourth or fifth one I’ve posted on my blog.

 

Safe to say that I LOVE cookie dough.


 

 

This recipe takes just a couple of minutes to throw together and you are ready to start inserting a spoon.

 

 

This cookie dough freezer well too! Unlike healthy cookie dough made using coconut oil, this dough tastes even better when it’s rolled into balls and frozen for a bite sized snack right out of the freezer!
