Almond Butter Energy Bites

White Flowers

     It's mid summer over here my pantry is bare. Never mind that I just went shopping 3 days ago and it was impressively full...my kids all out on summer break so their day consists of sleeping, breakfast, snack, snack, snack, lunch, snack, snack, snack...you get it. I love snacks that are quick AND healthy, tasty AND easy.

     Some of our favorite healthy snacks are the usual apples, oranges, carrots and celery but we like to break up the monotony of our routine with something new. This recipe is so easy your kids could help out and you can know that your feeding them real and nutritious food. I'm hoping these will last a little longer than my latest grocery haul but something tells me that's wishful thinking. Happy snacking!
