Blessings + {Banana Cream Pie Bites}

Hi friends! I wanted to let you know that this will be my last post for the week, as I really want to unplug and enjoy time with family... you know, Babycakes...Dear Hubby...my inlaws. And I'm sure you will be spending more time focusing on your own families and food and just being together rather than reading blogs or looking for new recipes :)  I found this saying/photo on Pinterest -----> and just love it! Bless the food before us, the family (and friends) beside us, and the love between us.  Whenever I FINALLY find a new house to live in, this will be going up in the dining room!

I'm so thankful for you!

I just want to take a quick moment to thank you for being wonderful readers, commenters, and partners with me on this journey towards the happy healthy life.  You really have enriched my life over the past 8 months (this blog won't be turning "ONE" until February!).  I look forward to the future and all that we will experience together! Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

And make these new pie bites :)

These banana cream pie bites give the white chocolate pumpkin pie ones a run for their money.  I think I might actually prefer the banana ones!! They are decadently delicious.

They look fancy, but are so easy to make!

Here's a video tutorial on how to make the mini pie-crusts:

There's only 1 Tbsp of agave nectar (or honey) for sweetener, as the bananas and greek yogurt and Nilla wafers are so sweet already.  The best part? These amazing little four bite "Banana Cream Pie Bites" are only 84 calories each.  So enjoy 2 or 3 of them without any guilt!!

Here's the full nutritional stats per banana cream pie bite:
