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!
