good source of protein and great for a delicious crunch

Ginger & Cinnamon:
aside from being flavorful, both have great anti-inflammatory properties.

Simply add ingredients to food processor and pulse until it starts to come together.  You might need to add 1 TBS of water to bind the ingredients better.  You should be able to roll into balls once done.

Store in airtight container, and pop them in the refrigerator or leave at room temp.

My 15 month old niece couldn’t get enough of these when I was taste testing the snack recipe so yes, they are kid approved ;).  They kind of remind me of the taste/texture of RX Bars and I kind of dig it.

*Feel free to try additional add-ins, like coconut, protein powder, flax seed, etc!
