Raw Strawberry Oat Balls

Raw Strawberry Oat Balls

Yes, I am the mom that fed my babies and had to have a bit of whatever they were having…just to taste it. I was also that 3 foot tall toddler that stood by my grandpa’s chair at the dinner table basically begging for a bite of what he was having. LOL! To clarify I always had my own little plate of food that was mostly the same as everyone else’s but again, I just had to have a taste.

Fast forward and my children are well past their baby food stage and I’m still wanting to share snack time with them. I have yet to make a raw energy bite or bliss ball that they don’t love which makes me smile inside since they are one of my favorite, easy and delicious snack time treats. They are raw, vegan and the oats have more protein than one would think. Take a look at the protein content the next time you look at the label. I was pleasantly surprised by the high protein count.
