Healthy Snack Bites

These healthy snack bites take less than TEN minutes to make and you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry. My boys adore them! Great after-school or anytime snack with no preservatives or added sugar!

Healthy Snack Bites

We are on the home stretch of summer. I can tell it's time for my boys to go back to school because the fighting, name-calling and overall antsy-ness is OUT of control. Even the dog seems to be going a bit mad.

A few mornings ago I noticed that Elijah had a fresh ring of chocolate around his mouth and it was barely 7:00am. He confessed that he had been raiding the pantry in the mornings and gorging on chocolate chips, peanut butter and Nutella. Perfect. This was not ideal, so we came up with a compromise: if I made a snack packed with those delicious ingredients, he would have to limit himself to ONE serving at a time. These Healthy Snack Bites were the solution and so far they're keeping him out of the pantry. Either that or he's getting better at hiding the chocolate-mouth ring. And I couldn't help but throw in a few extra healthy ingredients for good measure.

My boys have fallen in love with these snack bites. They practically made me sign an agreement promising to have them on hand every day of their lives. This will be my new go-to after-school snack. They take less than 10 minutes to make and you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen. Swap out raisins for chocolate chips, add nuts of your liking or even a touch of applesauce or grated carrot.

Please tell me I'm not the only person who has a couple of wild animals living in my home. I hope these snack bites save your life as much as they've saved mine. Enjoy, friends!
