Homemade Chocolate Lara Bars
Lara Bars are one of my favorite snacks - they’re made of nothing but dried fruit and nuts, and are great for an energy boost. They sell for $1.50-$2.00 each, but by making your own, you save money and get to customize your bars however you’d like. Can’t wait to try these.

Product Review Time: Pure Chocolate Brownie Bars
I’m obsessed. Most “health” bars out there are dry and artificial, but these Pure bars are organic, vegan and amazingly tasty for a wannabe-brownie. They’re very fudgy - you may not be a fan if you like cakey brownies - and packed with nuts. I have no idea how they managed to make such simple ingredients taste like a fudgy brownie but I’m not complaining. 
So if you’re craving a brownie but don’t want to splurge on calories or fat, try one out!

Rawtella is a handcrafted raw vegan treat that will satisfy your…

Seen this before, might try it… but original Nutella will always have my heart

Got Milk? Try Chocolate After Your Workout.

When it’s time to choose a liquid chug after a long, tough workout, there’s a slew of options out there. Water? Gatorade, POWERade, or All Sport? Endurox R4? Physiologist Joel Stager, director of the Human Performance laboratory at Indiana University, has even one more potential workout recovery drink to add to the list: chocolate milk. His latest study, published in this month’s International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, names this kids’ favorite an optimal post-exercise recovery aid.

Yeah I’d rather be eating a Toblerone, but this will do to hold over my random chocolate craving

I LOVE Ben&Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream. Creamy banana ice cream embedded with chocolate chunks and walnuts…mmmm. 
 
But at 300 calories and tons of fat, saturated fat, and sugar for a 1/2 cup serving, it’s definitely a once in a while treat. Here’s a healthier alternative to get the same Chunky Monkey taste, with half the fat and sugar.
Not-So-Chunky Monkey Ice Cream
 3 frozen, peeled, and chopped bananas
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate shavings)
Optional: 2 tablespoons peanut butter or coconut
Place frozen bananas in a food processor and blend until smooth. Stir in or top with walnuts, chocolate and peanut butter. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
