Healthy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Blondies

Happy Saturday! Have a great day πŸ™‚

Yesterday morning did not feel like a Friday. I’ve been off all week since Monday was a holiday and I was off of work. Did anyone else feel that way or was it just me? For breakfast I made toast and topped it with peanut butter and chia seeds. If you don’t have chia seeds, I recommended grabbing a bag! I add them to smoothies, overnight oats and top toast with it. They’re a great source of protein.


I always have a yogurt around 3 as an afternoon snack at work. A week ago, I found a new flavor at the store for fall – apple cinnamon. Since it was new I figured I’d give it a try. Unfortunately I wasn’t a fan. The flavor was okay but it tastes like straight cinnamon yogurt and I didn’t get any apple out of it.


Alex’s uncle is visiting this weekend so I got home from work and made a dessert. When our friend Sarah came over the other week, she brought a healthy dessert with her. I wanted to give it a try. We didn’t tell anyone what was in it until after they tasted it. Alex’s dad was completely shocked when I said chick peas were the main ingredient. It looks like we have a new go-to dessert recipe! It’s super easy too but I recommend a food processor for mixing. My blender is a nitro ninja (which I love!) but it didn’t mash al of the chick peas perfectly.
