{Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites}

Happy Monday, friends!!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying this lovely start to Fall. We had an amazing weekend with my family, and now I'm spending this Monday getting geared up for a great week.

On our drive home yesterday, my husband and I decided that it was time to commit to cleaner eating habits and more concentration on health and exercise.  We're generally pretty healthy around here, but it never hurts to tighten things up a bit. :)  We grilled some chicken, turkey burgers, and fresh veggies for the week, and today I decided I'd whip up these healthy little snacks to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings.  I have always made these peanut butter bites, but I wanted to add a little something extra this time since I'm always in the mood for chocolate.

These are so easy…They took me about 5 minutes to make, and my little Reeves loved watching along. Enjoy!!


1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey


Combine all ingredients in large bowl, and mix well.  Form 1-inch balls and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Freeze for an hour, remove from cookie sheet, place in ziploc bag or tupperware container, and store in the freezer.




{3 Ingredient Pumpkin Bread}

Since the first official day of Fall is right around the corner, I thought I'd go ahead and get a jump start on the pumpkin posts.  I actually blogged about this last year, but I just had to do a repeat post because it's that good.  I love the Fall…I love the cooler weather, crisp air, crackling fires, and all things pumpkin - pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice candles, pumpkin scented hand soap.  You name it, I like it, so of course I was thrilled last year when my mom told me about this 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Bread she made.

How awesome is this?! 3 ingredients, bakes in less than 30 minutes, and it leaves your house smelling like pumpkin spice and cider...Pretty perfect for my busy days, and those boxes of spice cake sitting in my pantry are calling my name.

This is all you need:
  • Spice Cake Mix (1 box)
  • Pumpkin (1 can)
  • Pumpkin Spice
Mix ingredients together and bake according to directions on Spice Cake box.
