Chocolate Peanut Butter Apple Bites with Toasted Maple Pecan Granola
What I love the most about these chocolate peanut butter apple bites is that they’re single serving sized….or could be single serving sized. I’m not a big dessert eater, but I do enjoy a bite-sized sweet treat after dinner. I tend to buy dessert options that are individually wrapped, and mini, not only to control my portion size, but also reduce my temptation. These apples are the homemade variety of that.
Sure, you could easily take down 2 or 3 slices, but if you cut the apple to be exactly enough for your family then everyone can have a sweet treat, and you won’t have a ton sitting around afterwards tempting you to eat more.
Unless, of course, it’s one of “those days.” You know the ones. The alarm doesn’t go off, the kids spill a gallon of milk all over the kitchen floor, everyone is late, your boss is making unrealistic demands, the dog chews up the remote, and the dishwasher goes on the fritz. If it’s one of those days then by all means, make a whole chocolate peanut butter apple with maple pecan granola all for yourself, and eat it alone hiding in the laundry room. You earned it, and you shouldn’t feel guilty because after all, there’s fruit and grains so it’s good for you, right?
