Snack Bites (toddler approved!)

Updated: Jul 9, 2020

I am OBSESSED with these Snack Bites and this recipe is officially toddler approved (E is saying “more” in this pic)! 🙌🏼 So many awesome nutrients packed into every delicious bite! Peanut Butter ~ amazing healthy fat source (woo hoo brain health!) + awesome source of plant based protein Oats ~ very filling (makes for a yummy breakfast!) + high in fiber (and we all know what that does 💩👍🏼) Flax Meal ~ high in omega-3s which can prevent heart disease, fight anxiety and depression, and are great for brain health Chia Seeds ~ another great fiber source! Dark Chocolate Chips ~ loaded with antioxidants (protects our cells from damage caused by free radicals which according to may lead to heart disease, stroke, cancer, and other diseases of aging)

Snack Bomb Ingredients: 1 C Dry Oatmeal 1/2 C Flaxseed Meal 1/3 C Coconut Flakes (unsweetened) 1/4 C Dark Chocolate Chips 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds 1/2 C Peanut Butter 1/3 C Agave 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions: Mix all ingredients together. Place in refrigerator for 30min - 1hr. Scoop mix into little balls and store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week! (If you can make them last that long 😉) HAPPY MUNCHING!!

* To lower calories or sugar content, eliminate the chocolate chips and/or coconut flakes >> play with ingredient ratios and find what works for you!! I find these are an AWESOME snack to satisfy a sweet tooth, support a nursing mama, or fill up a hungry toddler!*

** Recipe inspired be the millions of energy balls you can find on Pinterest. These ingredients + portion sizes just happen to be my favorite!!**
