I’ll keep it real simple! You need to go make these peanut butter chia cups right now! And I mean today. They are sooo easy and hit the spot just right, without the guilt! Perfect for breakfast, as a snack or post-workout meal. They are rich in healthy fats and would make a great after school treat for the kiddos.
Confession, I actually ate these before my kids got home because they were so good. So don’t tell them ok!
We ended up having a pretty crazy week. With school ending and summer break starting it was already a hectic end to June. Then Micah, my little guy, went and broke his leg! Just in time for our cottage trip. You know the cottage on a LAKE! My heart is broken for him, obviously because he is in pain, but mostly because he will be missing out. He is a water baby by heart so this will be a rough vacation for him for sure. But I will make sure to give him lots to do and I am sure he will have a great time regardless.
I plan on making these up there and they will be the perfect treat to come home to after a day on the lake. My older boys have the best time. Canoeing, swimming, boating, eating ice cream, and playing with their cousins. We are lucky to get these summer days with family.
Anyways, here is the recipe to these super easy peanut butter chia cups. You can use any peanut butter but I LOVE a good crunchy one. And for the yogurt my fav is coconut but my older son is not a coconut fan so I make his with soy or almond yogurt. If you are in a rush you can let the chia sit in the yogurt for an hour instead of overnight, but overnight (or 4 hours) is best if you can spare the time.
Ok now on to the recipe… I would love to see your re-creations over on Instagram, be sure to tag me @at.my.table so I can see how it turned out and share!
