This holiday season make your own tasty treats that you can eat. Others will eat it, too! If you prepare it then you will know what is in it. Make it healthier so you can have a piece without the extra guilt.
One yummy treat that would be worth making is Not so Naughty Peanut Butter Brownie Bites. Being a mom of 3 teen girls where someone is in need of chocolate, this recipe uses Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, less oil and less sugar than most brownie recipes. They are tasty, satisfying especially with the chocolate peanut butter combination!
