It is easy this time of year to slip into some not-so-healthy food choices. As the holidays approach, the abundance of sweet treats and more occasions upon which to eat them can get the better of us. We see this with the recipe submissions here on Tasty Kitchen these days. Pumpkin baked goods everywhere! And let’s not even mention the Halloween candy we’ve been noshing on the last few days, except to say we need to get it out of the house as soon as possible.
Even though the time for Thanksgiving desserts and Christmas cookies is just around the corner, we can keep some healthy snacks on hand to keep ourselves honest. These Peanut Butter and Honey Trail Mix Bars from TK member Katrina, have all the good stuff—ahem, chocolate—to satisfy that craving for sweetness without the guilt. They’re nutty and sweet and perfect as an afternoon snack or even breakfast on the go.
Hope you enjoy!

I made these yesterday and they’re delicious! Just enough chocolate to feel like a treat, but packed with lots of healthy things to make them really nutritious. I substituted a few things just because I had them on hand. I used peanuts instead of cashews, oat bran instead of flax, and chunky instead of creamy peanut butter. I’ll definitely be making these on a regular basis.
