Mint Chocolate Almond Butter Bites

New Year’s resolutions. So easy to keep when you’re trying to come down off the Christmas sweets sugar high. But a few weeks into January and those sugar cravings seem to be louder than ever and oh so tempting. I’ve been trying to stay away from baking cookies right now – even for the blog – since having that around the house is just no bueno when I’m working to stick to healthier habits. The time between dinner and going to sleep is when my craving for chocolate starts to creep in, so I’ve been experimenting with new easy-to-make healthier dessert options to have on hand. I’ve seen a lot of protein-ball recipes out there and decided to make a variation on that concept for dessert. These Mint Chocolate Almond Butter Bites are a great bite-sized portion-controlled treat that will satisfy your sweettooth without wreaking havoc on your waistline.
