raw gingerbread bars

raw gingerbread bars | my skinny sweet tooth

I recently found these gems at Trader Joes. Now, I’m not always a fan of gingerbread but when the holidays roll around, I can’t get enough. Gosh, what’s wrong with me? 😉 …

Anyway, those cookies are so delicious and before I knew it, I had ate Mr. Gingerbread and his entire extended family … and their cousins. :/ Whoops.  They’re small and very, very addictive. It’s not until half the box is gone when I realized they are a whopping 2pp each. EACH! Insanity!

From that moment on, those were only for my husband and I placed them out of my sight. So now what am I going to do about my gingerbread craving during the holidays? I’ll tell you what I’m going to do … I’m going to eat gingerbread. Yep, gingerbread … in a raw, clean eating, no bake form. Finally, something I can feel good about eating. (I’ve been on a raw/clean eating kick lately … remember these?)

Oh! And after one bar, I’m completely satisfied. One is all I needed. There’s no going back and forth into the box, pulling out innocent gingerbread babies. See, we’re saving lives! 🙂 Continue reading “raw gingerbread bars”

skinny almond joy bars

skinny almond joy bars | my skinny sweet tooth

There’s something special about an almond joy. The chocolate and coconut can easily transport me to a topical place. Sometimes I feel those commercials prove true. You know the ones; where someone tears open that blue wrapper, and along with the chocolate and coconut, a palm tree appears. Yep, that’s me; eyes closed, sitting in my bathroom with my feet in the tub, inhaling an almond joy. Yet, in my head, I’m at the beach with my feet in the water. I just hope my husband doesn’t walk in on me and wonder what I’m doing … but hey, maybe one day he’ll join me. If I’m willing to share. I do love him, but he should bring his own almond joy just in case. 😉

Since my jeans won’t let me inhale almond joys like I used to, I’ve decided to come up with my own version. They’re healthier, too! Oh, and the best part? NO BAKE! It’s 85° outside, turn that oven off! 🙂

Each bar is only 2pp and satisfies that chewy, chocolate and coconutty craving. 100%. Maybe my husband will join me on the side of the tub with a plate full of these.

“Unwrap paradise” they say. Don’t mind if I do!
