Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Are you running around like crazy trying to finish your holiday shopping like me? haha I hate leaving this to last minute, but this year has been insane! Ah well, instead of focusing on that let’s focus on this yummy recipe! 🙂

As my long time readers know, the 21st of the month is one of my favorite days because it is the submission day for the monthly Recipe Redux challenge. So I am very excited today! :)   For those of you who aren’t familiar with Recipe Redux it is the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians. The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. It was founded by 3 amazing dietitians with a belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious. And let me tell you, I totally agree! The amazing bloggers who participate in this have come up with so many delicious, yet healthy recipes! If you haven’t been to the Recipe ReDux site yet, definitely pop over and check it out! Plus you can check out the other recipes from this month below!
 
This months challenge was to create a recipe that would bring ‘good luck’ for the new year and start off 2014 in a healthy way! I know once the holidays have passed that I still have a tendency to want to snack…and my sugar cravings are still lingering a bit too! 😉 So i decided to share this recipe with you! It is protein packed, low sugar, high fiber, super easy and delicious too! It is the perfect recipe to bring along to that New Years Eve or New Years Day party! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

  • OK - YUM! I usually make a few batches of stove top popcorn a week (in either olive oil or coconut oil) and why have I never thought to add peanuts & chocolate (one of my all-time fav food combos!)
