Peanut Butter Nutella Swirl Bars

GUYS!

Wow, I’m so sorry I completely left you high and dry for the past couple weeks! I left you hanging with my last post telling you about some “exciting news” and then didn’t have time to post a “lately” post (because I’m a major procrastinator). But I won’t leave you hanging any longer. The good news is…

I’M A YOGA TEACHER!!!!

I had been toying with the idea for about a year and Mikey finally convinced me to chase the dream. I went through a 16 day intensive training that was life changing. It was the best 2 weeks of my life. I learned a ton and I made some amazing friends along the way! I left inspired and stronger than I could have ever imagined! I receiving my 200 hour yoga teacher training (YTT) certification and I am also now a Life Coach as well!

I missed you guys a ton while I was gone but appreciate the comments and follows that continued in my absence!

I’m so excited for the next chapter of life and promise to keep you in the loop as I go through the ups and downs of chasing my dream as a Yogi. If you live in the Chicagoland area and want to take a class, learn more about yoga or are looking for a life coach, I would love to get in touch (shameless plug).

There was so much I learned over my training and I am inspired by the beautiful women I shared it with! It taught me to live each day in the moment. Stop worrying about what happened yesterday, it’s already done. And don’t worry about the future because you can’t predict what happens. Love abundantly and live your best life at this moment. We have been blessed to be in this place, with people we love and it’s far too easy to take advantage of it.

I honestly, from the bottom of my heart, want to thank you for all the support you give me through this blog. I love my Mikey’s In My Kitchen (MIMK) followers. Your comments always make my day! I promise to keep posting fatty, sugar-filled recipes with an occasional healthy recipe here and there.

Can you tell I’m inspired? My yoga rant is over and in it’s place I will leave you this recipe. Holy. Crap. It’s a doozy. Gooey, sweet and salty amazingness. Peanut butter is #1 and Nutella is #1A. Both soooooo good! These bars are super easy to whip together and will please every crowd (minus those with a nut allergy…). I highly recommend you make these stat!

I know I sound like a broken record, but truly, thanks to everyone for the support and love I’ve been showered with over the past few weeks. It means the world to me!!!
