Easy 4-ingredient Yum-Yum Bites

So a co-worker of mine who is so sweet and also training for her first half marathon has a very special birthday today! Happy Birthday Amy! šŸ™‚

As we usually do in my office, all of the girls started an e-mail chain to start plans on the hush-hush, and Nicole was going to make her amazing cupcakes, Kelly was bringing oreo balls (omg don’t eat these things, you’ll never stop until you hit oreo coma heaven!), etc. And I had to take the opportunity to make something with a healthy treat that everyone could enjoy guilt-free!

These little guys are also perfect for a quick snack on the go, or have a few with your eggs for breakfast! Perfect solution for so many different cravings.
