My Sweet Addiction- PeanutButter Chocolate PowerBalls!

The Snacking Challenge

I eat 5-6 times per day and many of these meals are often on the go. I am always on the hunt for that tasty mid meal snack that can boost my energy and keep my tummy full. However, it can be truly difficult to find a ToGo snack bar that isn’t either full of ingredients I do not understand or is not pretty expensive.

The Snacking Solution

It was time to come up with a nutritionally balanced and cost effect snacking solution! After much tweaking and experimenting the PeanutButter Chocolate PowerBall was born!

  • 1c gluten free oats
