Greek Cups 2

COME. ON. With these guys. I couldn’t love them more.  After making them, I had to run one of my boys to Scouts, and I actually brought a few with me to share with the other moms, because I knew how much they loved them.  They are SO tasty, so easy and SO, SO, SO healthy!  You can’t beat that winning combination.

I have always enjoyed Mediterranean Flavors – the saltiness of Kalamata olives, the tang from Feta cheese.  It’s simply delicious.  Oregano has always been a go to spice of mine – especially for my Italian dishes, but did you know that oregano also plays a big role in the Mediterranean flavors?

A little food trivia for you….

Greek Cups

All of these wonderful flavors combined with the fact that each cup is 80 calories!  Oh, COME ON already.  It’s silly not to make these.
