3 Guilt-Free Holiday Treats

Happy day 7 of the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle! Today I teamed up with another brand that’s very near and dear to my heart (and stomach)- gr8nolaI’m sure you’ve seen this little purple package all over my Instagram on several occasions so today I’m getting a little creative and using my gr8nola to share my top 3 guilt-free holiday treats!


This time of year means lots and lots of super yummy and rich food, and even more desserts! But if you’re like me and you’re trying to be a little bit more health conscious this holiday season, then these sweet treats are perfect for you.

Using my gr8nolaI created 3 healthy treats to satisfy your sweet tooth! What I love about gr8nola is that it’s made with amazing clean and simple ingredients and made without dairy and refined sugar! It’s all natural, non-GMO and only has about 5g of sugar and still tastes amazing. What’s not to love?


The first sweet treat I made was this delicious parfait. Parfaits are great because you can really customize it to include anything you want! For the holiday version of my parfait, I included some cinnamon, blueberries, coconut shavings, banana, some Greek yogurt and of course, my gr8nolaIt’s a great breakfast option to give you energy for the day and to make it even sweeter, try drizzling some honey!

Trail Mix

I usually like to eat my gr8nola by itself, but recently I started to mix my own trail mix. For those days that I really need that extra bit of sweetness, I like to add some chocolate covered raisins! For even more texture, I throw in some coconut flakes as well. I put it all in a cute jar, or even a little plastic bag to throw in my purse or my car to snack on all day!

Peanut Butter Toast

This is probably one of my favorites, and it’s such a good treat! It’s a great way to start the day with something healthy and filling. I got some whole grain toast, peanut butter, coconut shavings, gr8nola, some honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon! It’s a super great breakfast, or even a snack!

Having this healthy snack is such a great way to keep my mind off sweets especially during the holidays which means temptation season! And thanks to our partnership gr8nola we were able to make a generous donation to Freedom from Hunger just in time for the holidays!
