Super Food, Super Snack

You guys I have such a yummy treat to share with you today!

As you {may} know I have a major sweet tooth.  Cookies, especially chocolate chip, are my main weakness.  Some people crave salt, some people choose something a little more savory, I choose cookies.  Unlucky Lucky for me Kendall loves baking so we make chocolate chip cookies about once  a week.  The problem here is she only likes to make cookies for the dough {no judging} and that leaves me and James {Jimmy hates most sweets} to eat an entire batch of cookies.  Since I'd rather not have an already hyper toddler hopped up on sugar, I take one for the team and eat them all.  Yep, all of them.  In a matter of days too.  It's not pretty.


I needed to find a healthy alternative to all these cookies I was consuming.  So that I'm not the only one eating them {even though they're healthy doesn't mean you can eat the whole batch}, I wanted something I knew my kids would like too.  So, without further ado...

Shakeology No-Bake Cookies

1 cup all-natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 cup quick cooking oats
½ cup raw honey
1 cup Chocolate Shakeology

1. Combine peanut butter, oats, honey, and Shakeology in a medium bowl; mix well.
2. Roll mixture into 24 balls, each about 1-inch in size.
3. Flatten each slightly so that it is shaped like a traditional cookie.
