However, there's one thing that's even more impressive than the 28-year-old's toned, slim physique: her skills in the kitchen. Thanks to her innovative approach to cooking and baking, her two sons and hubby, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, chow down on Kristin's healthy dishes without complaint. "They definitely eat whatever I'm eating," says The Hills alum. "Jay has come a long way since meeting me and the boys have always eaten healthy and they don't know the difference so they don't complain." Most moms out there would probably agree that this gives Cavallari some serious bragging rights!

However, even the cleanest eaters get cravings sometimes, and the reality star-turned shoe designer is no different. But instead of going totally off the wall, she whips up sweet treats made with all-natural ingredients. And her recipes—which she often shares on social media—look delish! It's no wonder Cutler and the boys chow down on her creations without complaint. Below, we reveal our own Peanut Butter Coconut Oat Ball recipe—inspired by an Instagram of one of Kristin's go-to healthy indulgences.
