As of lately…

Guys, I just moved across the country….again. Phoenix was great, but I moved to Columbus, Ohio to pursue my career as a graphic designer at an advertising agency! Because I haven’t posted in forever and a day, I decided to do a mini recap of things I’ve been cooking/baking/eating.

Now that I’m all settled in, more¬†real posts to come soon! ūüôā

Snack Attack {tastes like childhood}

Who says snack time is just for kids? We all enjoy the afternoon or after-dinner/before-bed snack time! Two of my favorite things in this world, and one of my very favorite combinations, are bananas and peanut butter. When I have a¬†sweet-tooth I try to combine fruits with something sweet, like peanut butter or dark chocolate chips, rather than grabbing the pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Today I, of course, had a giant sweet-tooth. So I decided to take a walk down memory lane and whipped together what I like to call — a smudgie! ¬†This is a super healthy snack that is easy & delicious!

Ingredients: 
1. Banana
2. Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy, your choice)
3. Graham crackers (I used the low fat kind to save calories)
4. Whatever else you’d like to add!¬†

 

Directions: 
1. Mash up banana with a fork 
2. Add a few heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter 
3. Mix banana and peanut butter together
4. Spread mixture on one side of a graham and place the other on top, creating a sandwich
5. Place in the freezer for a few hours
6. ENJOY!
 

Somehow…this didn’t TOTALLY suffice my sweet-tooth craving, so I melted some dark chocolate chips in the¬†microwave¬†and simply dunked my smudgie into the chocolate. Perfection! ūüôā
