This is a total winner all around! I'm a huge snacker so these are perfect for me. And that lemonade? I love that it comes in a glass bottle!
Cristina @ I Say Nomato
Peanut butter and chocolate are the best! And mixed with banana to, yum! I'll have to try these. Sweetener from monk fruit, eh? That's really interesting, but makes sense since they're so sweet. Yum! Those lemonades look so refreshing too.
    Becky Hardin
    Thanks so much Cristina!

    I used honey as a sweetener. It worked great! I will definitely make these again
