I have a confession to make.

My name is Halley, and I am a snack addict.

“Hello Halley.”

Phew. I have been meaning to get that off my chest. Can’t we all agree to being personally victimized by snacking? It is a daily struggle. Often, I reach for the overly cheesy, extra salty or chocolatey variety which has not been forgiving on my love handles.

If you are a victim of snacking like myself, here’s one healthy option that will be sure to give you that extra fuel you need after a killer spin class. (Recipe courtesy of my kryptonite, the Pinterest of food and recipes, foodgawker.)
