Deciding to eat healthier is always a good thing for your body. The sad part is that it isn’t always good news to your taste buds because sweets are usually the first part of your diet to go out the window. This doesn’t mean that you can never eat sweets again, it just means that you have to be smart about the kind of sweets you splurge on when you feel like having a cheat day.
There are ways though that your “cheat day” doesn’t have to be so bad. Dark chocolate has proven to be better for you than either milk or white chocolate and is just as tasty. Almond butter is healthier for you than peanut butter and, again, is just as tasty. Now, which treat could use both of these ingredients in? A healthier version of Reese’s Pieces! So here’s a recipe for making almond butter cups.
This recipe makes 18 almond butter cups.
These are good for just a snack in the middle of the day or as a little piece of dessert after dinner. The best part is that kids can have them also, which means they can have a healthier type of sweet instead of just straight sugar. No matter what way you use them, they are a tasty treat that you can eat without feeling like you broke your healthy eating habits!
