A few weeks ago, the October issue of SELF Magazine came out. And my name is in it.(!!!!!!!!!) The October weekender section (page 44) is all about fit motivation and I created a treat – perfect for postworkout snacking!

It is a great little healthy treat to have around. Here is the exact recipe if you’re interested in specifics, enjoy!

1/4 cup almond butter
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp chia seeds
3/4 cup brown rice crispy cereal
1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
Microwave almond butter and honey for 10 seconds. Stir in chia seeds. When cool, add cereal and chocolate chips. Shape into little balls and refrigerate for at least an hour.
