Blendtec Recipe Of The Week: Healthy Snickers Bites
There is a common misconception that you can’t indulge in any chocolate treats while trying to eat healthily, but you CAN indulge and these healthy snickers bites that you can make in a Blendtec is proof! I love Snickers, formerly Marathon bars in the UK but they are packed with additives and all kinds of ingredients that aren’t good for us.
Instead, this homemade version of healthy Snickers is delicious and best of all, YOU get to control the ingredients and know exactly what is going into your body. This decadent dessert is totally guilt free and very easy to make. They can be kept in the freezer for a “rainy day”, and can be made regular size, or mini size for when you fancy just a small treat. Enjoy!
