Skinny Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

I recently have become rather obsessed with two things: politics and Skinny Peanut Butter Coconut Bars. The first GOP debate truly grabbed me, large in part due to Donald Trump’s flowy, golden locks and Carly Fiorina’s fierce convictions, which ultimately upstaged the six male politicians in the happy hour debate (let’s be honest). You go girl! Oh, and I can’t forget Dr. Ben Carson’s closing statement. Swoon. Anyway, I was watching the debate, some candidates passionate and others not so much, and I started thinking about my passion, what I would get on a stage to support and defend. 

“J,” I said to myself, “what are you most passionate about?” I wracked my brain for answers. “Okay . . . Jesus, hubby, family + dog, Quest Bars, Disney World, Harry Potter, and . . . hello, food! Doy!” And then I got specific, “Chocolate, peanut butter, coconut, oatmeal . . .” the list went on forever. But then I started getting really hungry. And so, feeling inspired, this is what happened. And in the strangest twist of fate, I suppose I have Donald Trump to thank for it [lol, only kidding].Skinny Peanut Butter Coconut Bars by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog Skinny Peanut Butter Coconut Bars by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogAnyway, politics aside, aren’t these Skinny Peanut Butter Coconut Bars so beautiful and inspiring and something you could become passionate about?
