Instead of resolutions this year, I sat down and wrote out my goals for the new year and ways that I can accomplish those goals. One of my goals is to simply eat better. If it isn’t a lifestyle change, it isn’t going to work for me. I also believe in indulging in the occasional treat and don’t you dare tell me I can’t have chocolate lol! A handful of DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut totally satisfies my cravings while still allowing me to stay on track. Plus, dark chocolate and nuts have all kinds of benefits. I added my favorite treat to my homemade granola bar recipe and it has made for a yummy snack, without sabotaging my goals. Don’t be intimidated, this recipe is so easy to make and so good! 


2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/2 cup sliced walnuts
1/4 cup honey
1 bag DOVE® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond


Step 1: Head to Walmart (print out your coupon first) and grab your ingredients. Don’t forget to get a couple extra DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut bags for snacking purposes (trust me on this one). I found my bags close to the front of the store, but I’ve also seen them in the candy aisle and in a special display. I’m loving DOVE® Dark Chocolate Strawberry & Cocoa Almond and DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberries at the moment!
