Simple Snack For A Busy Day

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and recovering from your super bowl shenanigans.

We went to a friends house and watched in their theater room which made Katy Perry just that much better. I loved the half time show but seriously I just have to mention how surprised I was to see Missy Elliot stroll out! HOLLER!!!  Talk about a flash back! Like, um.. where has she been the last 12 years?!!

I kept it pretty light food wise during the super bowl keeping pretty close to the veggie tray and shrimp, but had my fair share of kettle corn!  That stuff is addicting! So today I whipped up one of my old favorite snacks to reach for when I get a little ravenous.

I swear by 3 pm everyday I am tired and when I get tired I tend to mindlessly snack on whatever. Having these balls in my fridge ready to grab makes me feel better because it’s the perfect boost with a bit of staying power. I need in the afternoon!

This recipe is so simple and versatile. These balls are one of my go-to snacks for my kids. They love them and eat them by the handful.

These are perfect when you are tight on time and need a healthy snack. I separate them by 5 in plastic baggies and store them in my fridge, so when we are headed out the door I can easily snag a bag or two.

Give them a try and let me know how you like them.
