Chocolate Yogurt Kisses

I’ve officially found my new favorite snack. These yogurt kisses are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and totally guilt-free.

You can use your favorite kind of yogurt or follow the recipe that I used (below). Naturally, my favorite are the chocolate peanut butter ones pictured here. I’ve also made a few batches of just peanut butter that come in a very close second.

My kisses aren’t exactly pretty… but they sure taste great. Hopefully you have more luck getting them in the kiss shape. Regardless, they’re definitely worth making.

“Chocolate Yogurt Kisses”

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. honey

Mix all ingredients. Spoon mixture into a plastic baggie. Cut the corner of the bag and squeeze yogurt onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Freeze. Devour. Share.

Chocolate Oatmeal

Hold. The. Phone.

Chocolate for breakfast? Ohhh yes.

This oatmeal will have you anxiously awaiting the sound of your alarm (okay, maybe I won’t go that far… but it’s seriously delicious).

I’m admittedly a chocoholic. I’ve tried giving the stuff up before, but I found myself eating peanut butter by the spoonfuls. Giving in to my chocolate cravings in smart ways has been the lesser of two evils for me.

One of my chocolate-loving girlfriends gave up chocolate for lent. What a brave girl. She’s handling it well, but it’s getting to her in that way that only chocolate cravings can. We had lunch the other day and she asked the waitress for a salad topped with chocolate (she meant to say chicken, but she had chocolate on the brain). Poor thing.

Could you give up chocolate? I don’t think I’d survive.

Fellow chocolate-lovers, I dedicate this one to you.

Chocolate Oatmeal

(makes one serving)

  • 1/3 cup oats (I use Gluten free, slow cook, steel cut oats)
  • 1 Tbs. cocoa powder
  • Dash cinnamon
  • 1 banana (mashed)
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  •  1/2 Tbs. honey

Combine dry ingredients, and then add your wet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5-10 minutes (or until it thickens to your liking). Top with another splash of almond milk (and some chocolate chips if you really need a fix).

Enjoy your guilt-free chocolate dessert for breakfast!
