Friday Favorite: Sweet (Healthy) Treats

Hooray for Friday! I don’t know about you, but the holiday sweet treats have started creeping in… everywhere. Candy canes, fudge, cookies, candies, and cakes are starting to pop up in my office, at school events, in my shopping cart….they’re  everywhere!  I am still trying to recover from Thanksgiving thank you very much, and am not quite ready to dive into peppermint cocoa bites. To combat the onslaught of Christmas Cheer, I thought I would share some healthier sweet treat recipes I’ve gathered from Pinterest.

These Tropical White Chocolate Energy Bars from the Creative Bite are a nice alternative to sugary boxed granola bars.

Tropical White Chocolate Energy Bars - Krafted Koch - Tropical White Chocolate Energy Bars are loaded with healthy grains, nut butter and sweet dried fruits all drizzled with white chocolate for a balanced energy bar that is decadently delicious! Grab one of these energy bars from the freezer for a quick breakfast or snack that will you up and leave you feeling satisfied. #Healthy #Light #Energy #Breakfast #Snack

If you are looking for a healthy cookie, check out these Cranberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies from Amy’s Healthy Baking.  These little bites are made with whole wheat flour and a less sugary jam, than their traditional Christmas counterparts.

These clean-eating cookies are chewy, buttery & SO easy to make! They're just 45 calories, but these skinny cookies don't taste healthy at all!
