Guest Post - The Grant Life

Hi Addicted to Recipes readers!  My name is Kelley and I blog over at the Grant life.  I'm super excited to be here today!  I am going to share an easy, delicious and healthy recipe!  I know, healthy and delicious don't always go together.  In this case..they go perfectly!

Im going to give you a little background on me before I share our simple recipe. [It's ridiculously simple and quick.. I gotta add some filler content.. hah!]  I'm a mom to two beautiful babies who are exactly 14 months apart.  [That's them at the beach last week!]  Since I was pregnant so soon after our daughter was born, I didn't have much time to get my pre-baby body back.  Now, 27 months after our first baby I'm attempting to shed those extra pounds.  I work out 4 or more times a week and I am slowly changing the way I eat.   Which is the harder part for me.  

Apparently Greek yogurt is good for you.. really good.  It's full of protein and has no trans/saturated fats.  Unfortunately it tastes like yogurt but feels like sour cream.  [Eww.. I know.]  The good news is you can add just about anything to it to give it a better flavor and texture.  My favorite thing to add is honey and granola.  My bloggy friend Jill has this simple recipe for frozen yogurt bites and they look so good!  I used my [healthy] Greek yogurt and my add ins and created my own version.  

Mix all your ingredients [granola and honey in my case].  Spoon them into a muffin tin (or onto freezer paper like Jill did) and place them in the freezer.  

The honey gives the Greek yogurt a much nicer texture and the granola.. well it just tastes good.  [Side note.. I love muffin pans!  They are so versatile.]  

It took about 2 hours for my Greek yogurt bites to harden.. I know this because I kept poking at them.  I wanted one.  And as you can see by the missing bite, I got one!  I wanted to make sure they were really good before I took pictures of them.  

I used a fork to pry them out of the muffin pan.  They popped out pretty easily.. I was kinda worried.  

Hello delicious healthy treats!  So nice to eat you!  I had two [or three] of these little guys and saved the rest for later.  They stayed fresh in a ziplock bag in the freezer.  

Thank you for letting me share my super easy snack recipe today!  If you get a chance stop by my blog and say hello!  I love making new friends!
