Foodie Friday: Whitney’s Skinny Cookie Dough Bites

Sweet. Savory. Skinny. This Foodie Friday treat will blow your mind. The backstory? I came across this week’s recipe while paging through Oxygen Magazine’s website…It was a featured in an article entitled “Whitney Changed Her Attitude and Lost 30 Pounds“. Whitney, the aforementioned dieter, used these bites to “avoid caving in to her sugar cravings”, which is awesome since they still sound totally decadent. Peanut butter, honey, dark chocolate? Yeah, I’m in. Best of all, the bites are super simple, no-bake, and apparently somehow simultaneously gooey and healthy. Wins all around. Here’s how they’re made!
