Autumn is the perfect time for trying new treats. With the holidays around the corner, you need to find the perfect treat to bring to your family dinners! If you are a little worried about all of the sugar packed and butter stuffed treats you'll be indulging on, and you want something a little lighter but not as unhealthy, here are a few treats for you to try!
1) Cinnamon Sweet Potato Sticks
For this scrumptious treat, first preheat your oven to 420 degrees. Cut a sweet potato in strips as thick as you please, and toss them in a teaspoon of olive oil mixed with cinnamon and brown sugar. Bake for about 20 minutes, and enjoy!
2) Peanut Butter Dip
This is super simple - mix two parts peanut butter with one part Greek yogurt until blended and fluffy. You can eat it as is, add chocolate chips, or dip apple slices in it! You could even dip your cinnamon sweet potato sticks in it!
3) Vegan Ice Cream
I promise it is good! Slice two bananas and freeze them in a bag. Once frozen, put them in a food processor with frozen strawberries (or a fruit of your choosing) and a touch of almond milk. Chop until creamy! You could even do just bananas with a little cocoa powder.
4) Peanut Butter Bites
These are a great on the go snack! Mix peanut butter, honey, rolled oats, chia seeds, and chocolate chips. Once combined, roll in small balls, and refrigerate!
5) Chocolate Mix
Mix chocolate chips, raisins, almonds, and pretzels to make your own trail mix!
As you can see, I love chocolate. I hope you enjoy!
