Healthy Snacks For Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth

best healthy snacks satisfying sweet tooth Some people claim they "don't have" a sweet tooth, but I really don't see how that's possible. I think they're lying to themselves and the world. Personally (and many of you already know this), I have a very large sweet tooth and I'm not afraid to show it, but I like to satisfy it with healthy snacks as often as possible because not only is that strategy most beneficial to my performance as a runner, but also for my overall health.

Easy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies I only say this like everyday, but I love easy recipes. The kind that involve only a handful of ingredients and take 30 minutes or less from start to finish. Unless it's for a special occasion, I normally don't have the patience (or the cooking expertise) to spend like nine hours in the kitchen whipping up some kind of gourmet concoction.

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

apple-pie-lattice-top At the dinner table, stuffing is the usually always the highlight of my Thanksgiving plate. And at the dessert table, well at the dessert table anyone who knows anything about baked goods knows that it's all about the apple pie. Last week I successfully accomplished the task of creating my own homemade stuffing recipe. That dish is relatively quick and easy to make, which is just my style and one reason why I now love it even more. But apple pie, authentic, made-from-scratch crust, homemade apple pie... That takes a little bit more work. I always assumed that making a pie crust was something I never really wanted to try tackling simply because I don't have much patience in the kitchen. I'd rather just wave a wand and have the pie magically appear before me, you know?

Mini Strawberry Heart Pop Tarts

Mini Strawberry Heart Pop Tarts Whether you really enjoy Valentines Day, or you see it as just another consumerist, hallmark-card holiday, there's no denying one thing; it's the perfect excuse to bake super cute pastries decorated with hearts. So that's what I did. Plus, everyone secretly wishes they could eat Pop Tarts everyday without having to consume all of the icky refined sugars and unnatural additives that they're made of.
