If you read my posts a lot, you’ll know that starchy carbs aren’t my thing. My diet consists of mostly vegetables, fruit, a little yogurt and protein ranging from organic chicken to almonds. However, when you’re an athlete, you need that fuel to keep yourself going and these little wonders are chock-a-block full of healthy carbs, seeds and nut protein to keep you satisfied and energetic. AND…they’re super easy. Give them a shot! I got the original recipe from a training magazine I read and I changed and added things to make it a little more interesting.
Kids and adults will love them. They have enough sweetness to keep it interesting and peanut butter to make them appealing. Try them toasted with a little grass fed butter for breakfast with your eggs. That will keep you all morning long.

Thoses look so delicious. If I don’t have packets of Stevia is there something else I can use? Coconut Sugar?
Absolutely! That works, although the coconut sugar will add the taste of, y’know…coconut. 😉
Those look so delicious.
