Pomegranate seeds are one of my favorite foods. They're so versatile, but I obviously love them with chocolate. I made these for a party I have this weekend - I think they'll be a big hit. 

I'm calling these little treats healthy because they include dark chocolate, fruit, and nuts. I know they've got some sugar in them, but I like to acknowledge that sometimes life just needs to include dessert!

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know my definition of healthy eating is pretty liberal. Initially, I started this blog because I was transitioning to a vegetarian diet. I lived in a small country in the Middle East and I wasn't happy about how meat was being sourced (everything had to be brought in via boat or truck - not very humane or sustainable). Since I've moved back to the US, I've been able to find a butcher that sells locally sourced, humanely raised meat and eggs. So, I've added quite a few recipes to the blog with ethically sourced meat over the past few months.

There are many recipes with carbs and sugar on this blog, but in general, I like to focus on whole foods, unprocessed food, and seasonal ingredients. I'm certainly not perfect, but I hope this gives you an idea of where I'm coming from on the health food thing!

If you’re interested in a few other healthy treats - I’d also recommend my fruit and nut dark chocolate bites, the peanut butter stuffed dates, or my vegan chocolate milkshake.

I hope you enjoy these delicious little treats!
