Peanut butter fudge pretzel bars

Saw this recipe on @somethingnutritious instagram and knew I had to try it since I love her recipes and peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite dessert combo! I don’t often have pretzel in my dessert either, so I was excited to try her recipe. I loved how these fudge bars turned out (minus the…

My favorite part of Passover is the delicious Passover desserts! One of our close family friends used to always make Matzah crunch for us growing up, so I never had to made my own. Now that we have moved, I finally decided to learn to make my own! I used this recipe from Israel 21C….

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

The perfect snack and/or dessert to have in your freezer when you are craving something sweet! I’m not normally a huge fan of healthy substitutes for desserts, especially when it comes to ice cream.

Red Berry Oatmeal

Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate, so I figured, why not add it to my breakfast oatmeal this Valentine’s Day? Chocolate in warm oats is such a treat, especially since the chocolate melts and makes oatmeal taste like warm cookie dough. Plus, when I have chocolate in the morning, it tends to satisfy my chocolate…
