If your family is anything like mine, then you’ll appreciate these little gems!
I’m always looking for quick breakfast ideas to feed my family that are packed with nutrition rather than sugar & filled with protein rather than air. Oh! And did I mention, something I don’t have to bake?! But the most important thing my husband and kids look for in EVERYTHING I make them is, of course, it HAS to be delicious… especially if I deem it to be “healthy”!
I usually make my standard “protein bars” but wanted to come up with a quicker version as well as one with not a ton of ingredients that I just happen to be short on at the moment – oops!
After playing around with a bunch of nut butters and the old breakfast staple – oatmeal – I came up with these little bites of yumminess. Not only are they the easiest things ever… they taste so good that my first batch didn’t make it to day 2. Who knew they’d be the perfect mid-day snack too?! Bonus!!!
Obviously you can change things up to your liking (or your kids) – this is just a basic recipe – so please feel free to use it as your base… and then throw in your add-on’s. Enjoy!
1 cup Rolled organic oats
1/4 cup Organic Cashew Butter
1/4 cup Raw honey
1/2 cup dried blueberries
Dash of pink Himalayan sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients and let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. After chilling, roll out bite-sized (or larger) bites. Done! Yes… done. That quick. That simple.
Keep in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week (IF they last that long!). This recipe makes 12… depending on how large you make them… could be more. Could be less.
Big tip of the day: Dab a little coconut oil on your hands prior to rolling… it will make this little recipe that much more enjoyable since it will be less sticky, less messy. You’re welcome 🙂
