We’ve got to get ready for school and work in the morning, so it’s no question that we’re up early and occasionally rushing out of the house. When it comes to getting kids ready in the morning, there’s always an unexpected set back. “But I’m too tired to get up!” “I can’t find my shoes!” “Mom, I don’t like this oatmeal.” UGH.
In search of quick, healthy and delicious breakfast ideas, I came up with a bunch for energy balls. Hmmm, worth a shot, so I added my own little twist. Behold, my cranberry chocolate chip oat energy bites recipe! They are perfect little balls of goodness that carry a bunch of vitamins and minerals that are essential to getting your day started! Not only that, but they are tasty, too 🙂
