Carolina had them for breakfast this week and Joe took some to work. It’s an easy snack that satisfies sweet cravings and helps keep you full. Give a try and let us know what you think. 🙂

    These look delicious!! I’m definitely going to give them a try. I am always looking for a snack to taste yummy and keep me going that isn’t too heavy on the calories.

    My daughter, Reagan and I made these together and they’re delicious! This is a great snack to make with little ones if you get nervous with them around the stove. No baking required!
